School Climate and Connectedness Survey

The Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District is partnering with the Association of Alaska School Boards to conduct the School Climate and Connectedness Survey, a statewide survey for students, staff, and families. This survey measures their perceptions of each school’s climate including the engagement of students, staff, and families. 


Family Survey: We value input from our families. You are an important partner as we work to continually improve each school’s environment. Each parent/guardian is asked to complete one survey during the January 20th-March 20th window. If you have more than one child attending this school, you only need to fill out one survey.  The survey is available in English, Spanish, Tagalog, Hmong, and Samoan. Families can toggle to their target language in the upper left-hand corner. The link for the family survey for Houghtaling Elementary is:


If you are unable to take the survey at home, please stop on by the office to take the survey on one of our computers in the front office.
