Montgomery County Public Schools launched a partnership with Gallup in 2012 to measure employee and student engagement, and to use the results to help guide the school system’s improvement efforts.
The Gallup student poll is a survey of students in grades 5 through 12 that measures hope, engagement and well-being—actionable targets linked to student achievement, retention and future employment. Gallup research shows that the more connected students feel to school, the better chance they have of taking advantage of all that schools have to offer.
Employees who enjoy coming to work bring an energy that has a ripple effect on students and on creating a culture where innovation and creativity thrive. Employee engagement also was measured by a survey developed jointly by Gallup and MCPS. An employee’s level of engagement links to various school outcomes, including employee retention, parent engagement, student retention, and student achievement.
Survey results for the district and for all schools, from the fall of 2014, are published on this website.
