As a member of the education community in Missouri, we are asking you to participate in the Missouri State Board of Education (Board) and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) Strategic Planning Stakeholder Survey. Your participation is vital as the state is looking to gain insight into its education and strategic planning.


The survey is designed to gather feedback from a variety of stakeholders — including educators, families, community members, and business leaders — on the areas of focus that should be prioritized in Missouri’s public PK-12 education strategic plan. The insights gathered from the survey will be used to guide the state’s education policies and initiatives over the next several years and your participation will help ensure that the Board and DESE have a comprehensive understanding of the needs of students, families, and educators across the state. The survey is easy to complete and should take only about 10 minutes. Your responses are completely anonymous, and your input will be kept confidential.


Please access the survey here.


The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, April 21, at 5:00 p.m. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to have your voice heard and to contribute to the improvement of education in Missouri!


Thank you for your time and for your commitment to education in the state.
