On January 20th, 2015, Portland Public Schools launched a school climate survey as part of a first effort to get more feedback, more regularly from parents within the District.
Since the launch, however, there have been real and substantial improvements. PPS staff facilitated an introduction to the team at Oregon Kitchen's Table, the group helping PPS with administering the survey, and they were completely open to rewriting their privacy terms to make their intent clear, and to strengthen their privacy terms. Over the last few days, we all worked at editing the terms, and then met face to face to hash out the final version. Then, the terms were vetted by a lawyer who recommended some additional clarifications, and now, the updated terms are now live on their site.
The folks at Oregon's Kitchen Table deserve a huge amount of credit for their responsiveness and work. They prioritized these improvements, and got them done incredibly quickly, without compromising anything in their mission, and without taking shortcuts. This is what success looks like.
