  • 2019 School Climate and Connectedness Survey

    The survey window is Feb. 11-22

    Click Here

    School environments vary greatly.  Some schools feel friendly, inviting, and supportive, others feel exclusionary, unwelcoming, and even unsafe.  The feelings and attitudes that are elicited by a school's environment are referred to as school climate. There are three dimensions to consider; physical, social, and academic.
