New calendar preferred in survey


Nearly one full semester into the new balanced calendar, and a majority of parents and school staff indicated through a district survey that they like Noblesville Schools’ new school year plan.

After this year’s fall break, a survey was created to help the district gauge the opinion of parents, teachers, administrators and members of the support staff. More than 2,700 people took the community survey with two-thirds coming from the elementary schools and 35 percent (950 people) coming from Noblesville High School. When asked their opinion of the calendar at this point in the school year, 55.8 percent (1,489 people) preferred the new calendar, 17.5 percent (467 respondents) liked the traditional calendar and 26.7 percent (713 people) had not decided yet which one they prefer.

Nearly 850 staff members – including 526 teachers – took a staff survey. When asked the same calendar question, 71.4 percent were in favor of the new calendar, 5.9 percent preferred the traditional calendar, and 22.7 percent were undecided.

When asked if the two-week break was generally beneficial, 59.6 percent (1,600) of parents and 54.7 percent (428) of staff replied yes.

Noblesville Schools will continue to collect feedback on the calendar as the year progresses.
