School Climate Survey
The District’s priority is ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our students. This year, the District will partner with Nassau BOCES to conduct a School Climate Survey. This survey will be completed by teachers, staff, parents and students in grades 6-12. We are hoping that this survey will provide us with unique insight from each constituent group as noted in the district’s mission statement:
Our mission is to educate all students to their highest level of academic potential and to teach them the skills and knowledge to become capable, creative, and responsible members of our society. Responsibility for learning must be shared by all – children, parents, teachers and community.
School climate refers to the quality and character of school life, and research has shown that it has a very sizable impact on student learning. The School Climate Survey serves as a tool to help administrators gain an in-depth understanding of our school climate and how the District can best meet the needs of our students, families, faculty, and staff. Participants will be asked about their perceptions on topics such as student engagement, school environment, and school safety.
The Survey results, which will not identify specific individuals or their responses, will help the District improve student relationships, learning conditions, and school overall environment. As always, our ultimate goal is to foster student growth and achievement, along with ensuring the wellbeing of students, faculty and staff.
The survey will elicit information from the following stakeholder groups:
- STUDENTS in grades 6 - 12
- PARENTS of all students in grades K - 12
- All District INSTRUCTIONAL AND NON-INSTRUCTIONAL STAFF
Nassau BOCES is hosting the survey on their remote platform which can be accessed during a two-week window, October 18, 2021 - October 29, 2021. The results will be shared exclusively with the school district.
