May 2020 School Climate Surveys
As part of our PCCD School Safety and Security grants, we will again be administering the PA School Climate Survey, provided by the PA Department of Education, to gather important information from our stakeholders.  This is the same survey given at the end of May 2019.  We are using the results to measure our progress during the school year in improving school climate.  Surveys will be available for staff, parents, and students (gr 3-12).  These surveys will be administered online from now until May 29th.  Participation is voluntary, and participants do not put names on the survey.  Survey information will be shared with students grades 3-12 in Google Classroom and Teams.   If you would like to review copies of the survey  please contact your building principal.   We will email directions to access the parent survey the week of May 11th.
