Community Survey – 398 comparable responses out of 1,169 total responses


Community Survey in the Media
Community Survey leads participant to a
predetermined bias before answering
survey questions:

 “During the current administration’s tenure, AHS has endured a school


shooting, multiple suicides, a proliferation in drugs available to students,
high profile bullying incidents and the recent arrest of two teachers on
charges of sexual assault on a child by someone in a position of trust.”

 No evidence of “proliferation of drugs available to students” or “high


profile bullying incidents”.
Because this pie chart
measures responses,
not respondents, it is
statistically incorrect
to state 73.9% of
respondents are
concerned about the
AHS administrators
Lacks
comprehensive
options. Positive
options not
provided.
“We have no expectation that
the district would remove a
principal based on some online
push poll.”
– Jessica Peck, Littleton Independent, April 10, 2019
Conclusion:

 3 CSCI surveys show a positive or neutral school climate at AHS


 CSCI and TLCC surveys show AHS staff is supportive of the AHS
administration
 The Community Survey’s multiple choice questions are statistically
unreliable in demonstrating the opinions of the respondents. The
survey not only shows an inherent bias and purpose, but has been
described as a “push poll” by the group’s attorney.
“I can tell you, though, that regardless of
what this survey says, the leaders of this
coalition will have the same view: we've
got to have leadership change,” Peck said.
“We're just in the early stages here.”
