Williamsburg-James City County Schools are looking for input on the school division’s engagement efforts with the community.

The school division has launched a survey geared toward residents of the City of Williamsburg and James City County — with or without children in WJCC schools — on how the division connects with the community.

The “family and community engagement survey” asks residents for their opinions on where they think WJCC is succeeding and where it needs to improve.

WJCC Director of Public Relations and Engagement Betsy Overkamp-Smith said the school division had organized division-wide community surveys in the past, but none recently.

“This is the first time in a while,” she said.

Overkamp-Smith said the survey also fulfills an objective in the division’s strategic plan to increase public engagement with the schools.

The survey is open to all residents of Williamsburg and James City County, and is accessible electronically on the division website. Residents can scan QR codes on posters distributed throughout the area to access the survey via smartphone.

Paper copies are also available upon request at each WJCC school. It is available in both English and Spanish language versions.

The survey will be open to residents through June 12.
