2019 HUHS Parent Community Survey

Hartford Union High School (HUHS) recently completed a strategic planning process which involved a team of 30 stakeholders. This group reviewed school performance data, participated in focus groups and then developed the following goals:

  • Goal #1: Career, College, and Life Readiness Achievement Students will meet Career, College and Life Readiness Achievement benchmarks.
  • Goal #2: HUHS will be viewed as the community’s “high school of choice” HUHS will be viewed as the community’s “high school of choice.”
  • Goal #3: Engagement of All Stakeholders HUHS will increase each stakeholder group’s engagement and satisfaction.
  • Goal #4: Master Facilities Plan Develop a master facility plan for the school buildings and grounds.

Using these goals as a planning framework, we are seeking your input on this community-wide survey to help us answer three important questions:

  1. What are we doing well?
  2. Where do we need to adjust and focus more resources?
  3. What are our highest priorities?
