GDOE is participating in Speak Up! Time to prepare to get the best results for JFKHS
The Speak Up Research Initiative, facilitated by Project Tomorrow, is both a national research project and a free service to schools and districts everywhere. Since fall 2003, Speak Up has helped education leaders include the voices of students, faculty, parents and the community in annual and long-term planning.
We’re joining more than 3,000 other districts around the country this year in taking advantage of this opportunity. Project Tomorrow provides everything you need to help make Speak Up a success: promotional materials, school-to-home messaging, infographics, social media promotions, lesson plans and more!
Speak Up will be open during academic year for student, parent, faculty and community participation. We need your help to ensure our school and our district get great valuable data!
