Take the survey today at: www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2013
With less than 3 weeks to go there is still plenty of time to get the word out about Speak Up. If you just registered your district or are looking for new ways to promote the survey how about trying one of these ideas:
- Host a Speak Up Day: Pick a day in December to have your K-12 community complete the Speak Up Surveys! San Marcos Unified School District in California collected 1,500 surveys during their 1st Annual Speak Up Day during the Speak Up 2012 survey period. SMUSD promoted their event via email, website, phone calls & social media!
- Focus on one survey type: Each survey receives their own data set with national comparisons (k-2, 3-5, 6-8,9-12, parent, teacher etc.) a focus on teachers, parents and/or administrators is an easy push and a great way to receive a meaningful dataset. Some recommendations would be to send an email or phone recording to parents or email blast to your teachers. Click here for a variety of sample emails.
- Highlight the Speak Up survey on your website using one of our Speak Up logos (with a link to the survey). Click here for the code to embed on your website. Make sure to include your survey password!
- Use social media networks such as facebook or twitter to get the word out about Speak Up to your stakeholders. Try retweeting one of our @speakuped tweets or post these sample tweets, just click on Tweet this!:
