Superintendent Bryan Johnson's transition team wants to know what you think about Hamilton County's public schools.

Less than four months after Johnson named a community transition team to assist in the leadership change in the Hamilton County Department of Education, the district has launched a survey to gather the thoughts and opinions of community members.

The team - which includes local business leaders, community members, national experts and department personnel - was charged with developing a new strategic plan for the system. Its members are focused on five key areas: student achievement, postsecondary readiness, talent development, organizational efficiency and communications, and stakeholder engagement.

The survey, launched Tuesday, asks questions ranging from topics such as teacher recruitment and where participants receive information on workforce opportunities to their satisfaction with teachers at their zoned schools and what recommendations they would make to improve their school.
