  • DCR1 Conducts Ballot Feasibility Surveys of Voters, Parents, Community Members, Staff
    On October 10th the Dallas County R-I School District will begin a set of surveys to investigate running a ballot issue in April of 2019 to be able to build a new Agriculture/Technical Center. The school district has contracted with Patron Insight for the second year in a row.  Patron Insight is a company that conducts surveys for school districts and other government entities. They guarantee their surveys are statistically accurate within 5%; however, many school districts who have used their services state their accuracy is usually within 2% of their actual ballot issue results.

    This survey process will consist of 4 different parts.  The most accurate portion of the surveys is the phone survey.  Patron Insight will contact a set percentage of voters who reside in multiple regions of the school district.  Voters can choose not to answer the questions and the company will continue surveying other voters until they have reached their targeted number of phone survey responses.  A complete phone survey usually takes 10-15 minutes of a voter’s time.

    The survey contractor will also analyze the data from three separate online surveys.  The staff survey will be sent out to all current DCR1 staff members. The parent survey will be sent to all current parents or guardians of students in the district.  In addition, there will be a community survey that will be available on the district’s website at All surveys will begin on October 10th and will be close on October 30th.

    After the survey’s have closed, Patron Insight will begin analyzing the data and is hoping to get the results to the district by early December.  This timeline will allow the district to make a decision on the feasibility of an April 2019 ballot issue at their regular December board meeting.  These surveys will allow the district to have an accurate picture of whether the voters are in favor of increasing property taxes to be able to build a new Agriculture/Technical Center on the High School Campus.
