Climate Survey Information

How is the climate in your district?  And how do you know?

The US Department of Education has made surveys available to districts to assess the “climate” or environment of their schools.  Surveys are available for 1)  students (grades 5 to 12),                      2)  parents, 3)  instructional staff, and 4)  non-instructional staff.  DPI has made the four surveys available in a very user-friendly format. 

Get vital information you can use to improve the schools in your district!  High quality school climate data allows you to:
  • understand the perceptions of the students, staff, and parents in your school or district
  • monitor progress 
  • make data-driven decisions
  • involve stakeholders
  • adapt to shifting needs related to school climate

This low effort/high information opportunity is FREE to districts.

To request the climate surveys, email and provide the dates you would like to begin and end the surveys.  You will be sent the surveys.  Please read the two resource documents below to get started (Climate Survey Information Sheet and Tips for Survey Administration and Results Interpretation).
