Bellevue Leads conducts poll based on Community Values Statement focused on continuing improvement of Bellevue public schools.

On August 11th Bellevue Leads announced the results of a poll conducted to explore public opinion of how Bellevue public schools are addressing the needs of students in our community.

 “We are proud of Bellevue schools and our outstanding reputation for the quality of our public education system.  We feel that it is essential for Bellevue public schools to build on our success and continue to change and evolve in a positive way to ensure that we are focused on continuous improvement, maintaining our leadership position in education in Washington and, most importantly, that all children in Bellevue receive a high quality education.“  states the Bellevue Leads Community Values Statement.

The purpose of the poll was to measure the depth of interest in the community values statement developed over the course of 2011 by the community members involved in the Bellevue Leads Coalition.

“As community members and parents, we believe that we are collectively responsible for the growth of all of our children through education.  We believe the continuing teachers’ contract negotiation provides an excellent opportunity for Bellevue public schools to build on our successes and make great strides for all our students,” said Cathy Habib, one of the PTSA representatives to Bellevue Leads. “For this reason we conducted this poll to gauge public support for these values.”
