The Maxwell Staff Council asks that you take a few moments to fill out the Maxwell Staff Satisfaction Survey here. We are requesting all surveys to be completed no later than March 17th so we can collate the results in time for our March staff council meeting on the 21st.

Mission: The Maxwell Staff Council will serve the staff by providing enrichment opportunities, supporting initiatives that cultivate a positive work environment, facilitating communication, and advocating on behalf of the staff.
