School Climate Survey Spring 2023

School climate affects every aspect of the school experience. Research has shown that a positive school climate correlates to higher attendance rates, test scores, promotion rates, and graduation rates. When everyone feels welcome, safe, and valued in school, it positively impacts both teaching and learning. 

The School Climate Survey is NOW OPEN. The deadline for students and parents/caregivers to complete the survey is Friday, March 31; the deadline for staff to complete the survey is Friday, April 14.If you need assistance in completing this year's School Climate Survey, join one of our in-person Parent University sessions:
