DoDDS-Pacific/DDESS-Guam surveys students and parents Published Jan. 21, 2009 By Chip Steitz DoDDS Public Affairs KADENA AIR BASE, Japan -- A customer satisfaction survey for families with children in DoDDS-Pacific/DDESS-Guam is currently being conducted through Feb. 28. The survey provides valuable feedback to the Department of Defense Educational Activity from its most important customers - students and parents - about the quality of education it provides and areas that need improvement. Students in grades 4-12 and sponsors for each child enrolled in DoD schools from Pre-kindergarten/Sure Start through 12th grade are asked to take survey. Participation remains voluntary, but maximum participation is encouraged to obtain reliable and valid data. Information derived from the survey will be used to improve planning efforts at all levels throughout DoDEA. Schools, districts, and areas will use the survey results to gain insight into the satisfaction levels of sponsors and students, which is one of many measures used in future planning of programs and services DoDEA offers.
