Parents and employees overwhelmingly gave high ranks to the Mesa Unified School District in the latest Quality Service Survey.
Each spring, the district's Research and Evaluation Department conducts a Quality Service Survey of all parents, all employees and a sample of students at each school.
On the latest survey, 96 percent of parents and 90 percent of students who responded gave their schools A+'s, A's and B's.
Employees were asked to assess the quality of the district administrative and support services. On that survey, 85 percent of the respondents indicated "excellent" or "very good."
In all, 49,027 surveys were completed and returned this school year. As a result of the high marks for a job well done, eligible full- and part-time employees received up to $75 in additional pay May 16. The incentive compensation was funded by the state's Career Ladder program.
