Annual Needs Assessment Survey, Deadline March 1

Annual Needs Assessment Survey, Deadline March 1
The HPSD Annual Needs Assessment Survey is now open for faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members. Please click the link below to provide your essential input and feedback regarding our district. The deadline to complete is Friday, March 1.
Hattiesburg Public School District will launch its 2019 Comprehensive Needs Assessment survey on February 18th. This survey is designed to seek opinions and ideas from parents and community members, as well as from faculty, staff, and students. The questions assess the status of the district in areas like family and community outreach, curriculum and instruction, and school facilities and organization. The survey is brief and will only take a few minutes to complete.

The results of the survey will be compiled into a report that also analyzes test score trends and other school success measures. The district will then use this report for strategic planning, for administering federal programs that require an annual comprehensive needs assessment, and for examining current school and district practices.

Hattiesburg School District would appreciate your help on this important assessment of the district. The survey is available online on the district website at and in paper format at the district central office.
