Thank you, parents, for taking a few minutes to take the survey. We had a ballpark of 85% response rate of all Hillcrest households with all grades evenly represented except for grade 8 whose responses were lower.
Survey results make clear that Hillcrest households overwhelmingly want Hillcrest Middle School to stay open and that OUSD risks losing a majority of current families from the district should it close. We will be sharing this data with D1 and D4 School Board Directors this week.
98% of Hillcrest K-8 Households Want the Middle School to Stay Open
76% of Hillcrest K-8 Households are "Likely" (22%) or "Very Likely" (54%) to Leave OUSD if the MS Closes
Parents who asked to be connected directly with their School Board Directors have either been invited to the first round of small gatherings this week or will be invited to the next gatherings in January, prior to the anticipated Board vote on January 11.
Closing Hillcrest Middle School is Bad for Hillcrest and OUSD.
