John Rex’s Board of Directors and administration are committed to implementing feedback from families and other members of the community. The Board has retained a third-party consulting firm based in Oklahoma City, Schnake Turnbo Frank, to help with the strategic planning process. The use of an outside firm ensures confidentiality and provides an opportunity for broad, open feedback.

Thank you for helping us make John Rex the best it can be for our students and our community!

For all general inquiries about this process, please contact Director of Operations Shelly Hickman,


Completing the survey is the first step in the strategic planning process. You can expect to receive an individual link from Survey Monkey via email on April 20. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. All feedback will remain confidential, and we highly encourage you to participate and submit your responses no later than Tuesday, May 31.

If you prefer to receive the survey in Spanish, contact Priscilla Rojas at as soon as possible.

Please check your email’s spam folder if you do not receive an invite to the survey. If you continue to have trouble locating the link, contact Rachely Hernandez-Salazar,

Focus Groups

Following the completion of the survey, Schnake Turnbo Frank will begin facilitating focus groups of 15 people or less. Each session will last no more than an hour. This is an opportunity to provide additional feedback and to cover any topics not mentioned in the survey. The feedback we will obtain through the focus groups is key, and we request all participants agree to maintain strict confidentiality regarding the topics covered and the attendees in the focus groups.

Additional focus group times are now available via Zoom. The following sign-up options are for any parent and/or guardian of a John Rex student grades PreK – 8th:

  • Wednesday, May 18, at 10:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday, May 18, at 6:00 p.m.

Location and Parking

All in-person focus groups will be held in the art room at John Rex. For those attending a virtual session, a Zoom link will be provided prior to the discussion.

If you are unable to secure parking around the school, parking will also be available across the street at Dunlap Codding for the duration of each focus group.

One-On-One Interviews

For the final step in the strategic planning process, Schnake Turnbo Frank will conduct one-on-one interviews with John Rex families. Due to timing and limited resources, only a few families will be invited to participate in this step.

Interviews will last 30 minutes or less, focusing on the individual’s view of John Rex’s current organizational structure, strategy and vision for the school. Individual interviews will be scheduled beginning the week of April 18 and will continue through May. Final interviews will take place the week of May 23.
