Explanations and Reasoning

Section E.

The SP 2022 Student Body Opinion Survey proved to be very helpful to students, senators, and the school’s staff to whom it was presented. This data will seek to build on that previous data while also asking new questions regarding changes in the school’s policy among other topics.

The gift cards will be used as an incentive to help get more respondents to fill out the survey. This is not just financial coercion—it is a tried-and-true survey technique recommended by a retired data industry professional.

Citizens Hannah Amyx and Kezia Happy will be conducting the survey.
