"Dear Community Member,
As a member of the Bridgewater-Raritan community your opinion is of great importance to us.

We are currently engaged in the creation of a strategic plan that will guide all aspects of our work for the next five years.

As such, I encourage you to provide your input by responding to the questions in this survey. This survey is designed for community members of both Bridgewater and Raritan. The survey contains five sections, each centered on one area of focus. The five areas of focus are:
1. Governance & Leadership
2. Facilities and Safety
3. Faculty and Staff
4. Program
5. Communication

For each area of focus, you will be asked to rate your agreement with specific statements that address aspects of each area. At the end of each section, there is an open-ended question where you can supply any additional comments on that area.  

To make your feedback as useful as possible, please refrain from using names of individuals or buildings. Any feedback that identifies individuals will be disregarded. This is true even if the feedback is positive. If you have commendations or recommendations about an individual that you need to raise, these surveys are not the appropriate avenue to do so and we would appreciate separate communication. 

The survey is anonymous; however, we do ask for certain characteristics so that we can categorize responses in more focused, meaningful ways. There will be no connection between you and your responses so I hope you give us unfiltered feedback. Other than the demographic information, none of the questions require an answer so you may skip a question if necessary. Please note that while statements are written in the present tense, we know that you are providing feedback based on your previous experience, as a student or a parent/guardian of a student. If neither you nor your child/children have attended the district and you are not able to assess a particular statement, please select “Not Applicable”. 

The information produced by this survey will be used by our 60-member Steering Committee as they frame our plan. This exciting work will allow us to build upon the strong foundation that supports the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District.

For continuing updates on the plan, visit our website and click on Strategic Plan. We plan on presenting the finalized plan to the public in early June.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable insight."
