Before proposing a budget for the upcoming year, school leaders must complete the budget review process, which includes conducting a needs assessment that allows leaders to identify current student and school needs and how well they are currently being met.
Create an online needs assessment survey tool to assess current school needs and how well the action items on the school’s CIP/SIP plan are being met. The needs assessment survey should have 8-10 questions and be designed specifically to collect information from school faculty and staff about their ability to meet student needs. You will be administering this needs assessment survey in Topic 4.
The needs assessment survey should address, but not be limited to:
- Assessment of the school’s current abilities to meet student needs and outcomes (e.g., what is working/strengths and what is lacking/areas of opportunity).
- Resources required to meet student needs and outcomes
- Wants and requests for meeting student needs and outcomes
- Gaps that are affecting student performance.
Faculty and staff are just two stakeholder groups whose input is needed for a comprehensive school needs assessment. Write a 250-500 word description of other stakeholders who would need to be surveyed as well as other key data points that would need to be gathered as part of a comprehensive school needs assessment. Explain why this input is needed.
Provide the link to your online needs assessment survey at the bottom of your description.
