RISD participating in “Speak Up” survey

Since Oct. 3, Rockdale ISD has been participating in the Speak Up national research project. Speak Up is the first survey designed to help parents share their ideas directly with schools and national policymakers.

As key stakeholders, Speak Up provides parents with a mechanism for expressing their views to the administrators at their child(ren)’s school and district about key issues impacting their child(ren)’s education.

Since 2003, Speak Up has collected and shared the views of over 2.6 million students, teachers, and parents from all 50 states, as well as internationally.

By participating in Speak Up, parents are expressing their views to a wider audience of local, state, and national policy makers as well as the business community— and contributing to the national dialog about science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st century workforce.

The online survey is open to students, educators and parents; it’s quick and easy to get involved. To take the survey visit: www.speakup4schools.org/ speakup2012/ and click the blue parents “enter here” button.
