QUESTION TWO: “I am generally satisfied with being an employee of the Cumberland County School System.”

717 answered out of 1,100 and the results showed 25 percent strongly agree, nearly 57 percent agree, 14 percent disagree and just over 3 percent strongly disagreed.

717 answered out of 1,100 and the results showed 25 percent strongly agree, nearly 57 percent agree, 14 percent disagree and just over 3 percent strongly disagreed.

QUESTION FOUR: “I feel supported by our Director of Schools Janet Graham”

717 answered out of 1,100 and the results showed nearly 20 percent strongly agree, 30 percent agree, 23 percent disagree and nearly 19 percent strongly disagreed. Eight percent listed the question not applicable or refused to answer that particular question.

QUESTION FIVE: “Our Director of Schools Janet Graham encourages suggestions for improvements”

717 answered out of 1,100 and the results showed nearly 17 percent strongly agree, 29 percent agree, 25 percent disagree and 16 percent strongly disagreed. 12 percent listed the question not applicable or refused to answer that particular question.

717 answered out of 1,100 and the results showed 16 percent strongly agree, nearly 26 percent agree, 25 percent disagree and 24 percent strongly disagreed.

After the survey was reviewed, school members questioned why only 717 took the survey out of 1,100. One reason was attributed to many employees were afraid to take it because they were in fear of retaliation. Another reason was the ones that did not take it did not trust the confidentiality of the survey.

The Cumberland County Board of Education last month chose not to offer current Director of Schools Janet Graham a new contract. Her contract will expire June 30, 2020. The school board is now in the process of searching for her replacement.
