Schools today face many challenges, not the least of which is communication. Ensuring accurate, timely and trustworthy communications with key stakeholders is integral to supporting student success. Because it is so important, Williston Basin School District #7 is administering the SCoPE Surveys, three surveys dedicated to evaluating the effectiveness of our communication with Faculty and Staff, Parents and Families, and the School Districts we serve. Please take a moment to complete this survey by February 16th: https://survey.k12insight.com/r/xocLb1

The Williston Basin School District and the Superintendent expect that all concerns be treated with respect. Parents/guardians are often discouraged when they attempt to communicate with central office administrators and school board members and are sent back to building-based officials in order to resolve a problem their child may be experiencing in school. To prevent that frustration, parents can become informed about the “chain of command,” or where to begin the communication sequence regarding their problem or concern. Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communicating directly with the educator in charge of the class or program. Each situation should first be addressed at whatever level the initial action was taken, with appeals moving on to the next level in the chain of command. The easiest way to communicate at the building level is via ParentSquare, email, or our Comments & Inquires Form; a phone call is the next preferable way. The easiest way to communicate for specific departments is our Comments and Inquiry form; an email or phone call is the next preferable way. Here at Williston Basin School District #7, we ask that you address any issues in the order as laid out in our Chain of Command process below. To review the page on the website please go to the District page – Menu - Chain of command. https://www.willistonschools.org/page/chain-of-command
