The Roaring Fork Schools administered a staff survey in 2016 to get staff feedback on conditions in schools and on administrator effectiveness. The state of Colorado administered the TELL (Teaching, Empowering, Leading and Learning) survey in alternating years through 2015, but the survey was discontinued and not administered this year. The state plans to reintroduce a new survey of teachers and staff members across the state for the 2017-18 school year.
The RFSD staff survey is administered by a third party, Panorama, in order to maintain confidentiality and integrity. The survey contains two parts. The first part addresses perceptions of academic excellence, school culture, community partnership, and overall working conditions in schools. The results from this section are used for school planning purposes and are made available to the public after teachers, administrators, and other staff members have had an opportunity to review their own schools' results.
The second part of the survey provides feedback to principals and assistant principals on how staff perceive their performance in six areas: academic excellence, professional development, school culture, strategic leadership, talent development, and overall effectiveness. Administrators receive this feedback and review it with their supervisors. The results for this section are considered personnel records as they relate to individual job performance, and are not made publicly available. As with the student surveys about teachers, staff feedback on administrators is used to identify areas for celebration, reflection, and improvement, but are not a formal part of the evaluation process. However, unlike student surveys about teachers, staff feedback can be used as part of a body of evidence in determining the need for an improvement plan.

The School Performance Frameworks provide a snapshot view of academic achievement, growth, growth gaps, and postsecondary readiness (as appropriate by school level). Schools are given one of four plan types: Performance, Improvement, Priority Improvement, or Turnaround.
The Colorado Department of Education has created school-level dashboards that provide an interactive view of academic performance, academic growth, and other related metrics.
The Panorama Student Survey is administered each fall to all students in Roaring Fork Schools. The results of the survey are used by teachers, school leaders, and district administrators to improve practices, programs, and initiatives. The presented information has been condensed to a two-page summary format by school.
The Panorama Staff Survey is provided on alternating years from the Colorado TELL in the spring. The survey is used to provide feedback on building leaders or administrators and the school as an organization. Staff are asked to provide feedback on topics including, but not limited to, academic excellence, professional developments, school culture, strategic leadership, and talent development.
The Panorama Family Survey is provided to parents each spring beginning in 2017. The survey is used to provide parent feedback to our schools and district. The Family Survey is aligned with the National Parent Teacher Association and covers the following topics: Welcoming All Families into the School Community, Communicating Effectively, Supporting Student Success, Speaking Up for Every Child, Sharing Power, and Collaborating with the Community.
