Parent School Climate Survey

Parent School Climate Survey, 2014-2015

Santa Margarita Elementary

 

Your school needs you to complete this online survey to help improve school culture and climate. It is an opportunity to communicate your perceptions about fundamental learning supports and barriers at this school.  This letter explains the survey and, at the bottom of the page, provides your login, password and access instructions. If you have any questions about this survey, contact  Donna Wilkins.

You will have access to this online survey for 30 days beginning _3__/_1__/_2015__.

The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions of student behavior and attitudes, school programs and policies, and the overall school climate as they relate to student well-being and learning.  It deals with such issues as truancy, safety, harassment, substance use, school connectedness, and learning supports.  The survey is a companion to the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), and the California School Climate Survey (CSCS) for staff.

Your participation is voluntary. It is also very important. The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health risks that stand as barriers to learning.  

  • This is an anonymous survey.  It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you.  Simply skip any such questions. 
  • All questions apply to this school only
  • The results are for the use of your district.  CDE/CHKS will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.
