The Victoria school district will share a poll that measures how satisfied students, teachers, staff, parents are with the district.
The district will host a presentation at 6 p.m. Thursday with a representative from Harris Poll to explain the results.
This is the third year for the district to conduct the Harris Poll and the first time it will measure opinions after the opening of the two new high schools.
The poll was answered by 12,097 people this year, compared to 11,261 last year and shows an increase in satisfaction ratings, said Diane Boyett, district communications specialist in an e-mail.
The rating improvement for secondary students increased from 7.2 in 2008 to 7.5 in 2010.
"What drives these satisfaction ratings will be discussed in more detail Thursday night," Boyett said.
