School Climate Survey Spring 2024

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. Research shows that positive school climate correlates to higher attendance, promotion and graduation rates.

Responses to the 2023-2024 School Climate Survey were collected from March 16 - April 7, 2024.  Results of the survey will be shared with all stakeholders later this Spring.

Each year, SPS utilizes answers to the previous survey to inform decisions made at the school and district level. Some questions on the 2024 survey were revised based on feedback received in Spring 2023.
