Consultant resending school survey invitation

Deadline to take Menlo Park City School District survey extended to Dec. 9

After admitting it erred by leaving off the return address on a mailing that invited registered voters in the Menlo Park City School District to take an online survey, a consulting firm has agreed to remail the invitation at its own expense.

Assistant Superintendent Erik Burmeister said the firm, Panorama Education, plans to send new invitations by Nov. 17. The deadline to respond is being extended from Nov. 30 to Dec. 9.

"They will thank those who have already responded and inform them that there is nothing more to do, and will remind those who have not responded to please fill out the survey," Mr. Burmeister said.

Each registered voter is assigned a unique survey code, which prevents multiple responses by a single voter.

The return address will be: Menlo Park City School District, c/o Panorama Education, with Panorama's P.O. box address.

Mr. Burmeister said that although the survey asks about a possible parcel tax, it is part of an effort by the district to get more community feedback. The district plans to conduct a similar survey every three to five years. In other years, the district will do simpler internet surveys, he said.
