About the First 100 Days Survey

Newly hired superintendents face the daunting challenge of quickly gathering essential information to understand the unique needs of their stakeholders and building trust with the communities they serve.

To achieve this, it is crucial for new superintendents to find ways to efficiently engage with representatives from all district stakeholders. This approach helps uncover hidden needs and build confidence in the new leadership. Without direct data and insights from the community, formulating impactful strategic plans becomes significantly more challenging.

Panorama’s First 100 Days Survey empowers leaders embarking on listening tours by capturing comprehensive feedback from students, teachers, central office staff, families, and community members, ensuring strategic plans are grounded in relevant, high leverage insights.
