Those of you who do not have children in the Knox County Schools may be interested to know that families are receiving robocalls tonight from Assistant Superintendent and Chief Academic Officer Elizabeth Alves advising them that student surveys of "classroom environment" will be conducted on (or did she say "start on?") November 14.
The survey, which Alves advises is optional and is intended to "close the achievement gap," will be conducted by The Tripod Project and will be weighted at 5% of KCS teachers' evaluations.
Alves says that students and their families may opt out of participation by contacting their schools.
