School Climate Survey
All Grades

Principal Bulletin Action Required - April 15, 2018

As part of the LCAP data collection process, the district has launched the annual School Climate Survey. Surveys are customized for the audience: there is one for parents/guardians and one for students. The district has also collaborated with SCTA on a survey for staff and teachers. Questions are designed to measure perception of safety and belonging/connectedness. The survey results will be used to support district priorities, the actions in the LCAP (State Priority 6: School Climate) and reporting in the California School Dashboard.

The surveys will be open from March 7 through April 15.

Student Survey: The student survey is administered online to students in grades 3-12. The student link and instructions to administer the survey can be found below. Student voice is extremely important to district planning. Last year, over 12,000 students took the survey. We hope to increase the number of students participating this year.

Detailed directions for principals: Instructions for Student Survey

Family Survey: The family survey can be taken by any parent or caregiver. This survey is available on-line or on paper. We are encouraging families to take the survey online, but printable family surveys may be downloaded at and should be made available at the front office or in the Parent Resource Center.

Please share the link to the Family School Climate survey through your usual communication channels (text, Facebook, newsletter, web page, phone reminders, etc.). The survey is available in English and the five district threshold languages, both online and in paper versions.  Additional information is found here: Instructions for Parent Survey

Staff/Teacher Survey: Each site is asked to designate approximately 20 minutes at a staff meeting for the administration of the school climate survey to faculty and other staff. This survey is to be taken online and can be accessed using any device.
