The Oregon School District is looking for input from the community for improvement. They are trying to start a conversation that is like an open door policy. The district is looking for the community's opinion to make the schools better.
School district officials are asking Oregon parents, students, business owners and city leaders to fill out a survey to help determine the areas the district will focus on for the next three years.
"We really want to be responsive in the community we want to hear what they have to say. We want to make sure we are going in a direction that everyone understands," said Rivera.
Survey questions range from what a person likes the most to what frustrates them the most about the district.
"We want to know what people are thinking. I think far too often people think that we don't want to hear the bad, but we do. We have to know that then put it in perspective and see what the community thinks," said Rivera.
"Their opinion matters because they are the stakeholder in the community. They all are invested in this," said Amy Hansen, Oregon Schools Foundation.
The Oregon Schools Foundation is collaborating with the school district in order to plan the future for the district. The two are pushing for stakeholders in the community to fill out the online survey before May 21.
