Dear East Penn Parent/Guardian,
As input to our continuous planning and focus on improvement, I invite each of you to complete the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) survey. Different versions of the survey will be given to students and staff, which will allow us to hear from every single member of our school community. The survey is designed to assess perceptions of school climate, including feelings about safety, relationships, learning, the environment, and communication within the school.
The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and must be completed in one sitting. Your feedback is important to helping our district understand and improve the specific climate issues in our schools. All responses are anonymous. There are no names or other personally identifying information attached to the survey. Furthermore, results will not be disaggregated for sub-groups with ten or fewer constituents in order to protect their confidentiality.
The CSCI will be administered during the week of March 20. All surveys must be completed no later than March 24. The building principal will send you information about where to find the survey link on the morning of March 20. If you wish to have your child/children not participate in the survey, please contact your child’s building principal prior to March 20.
The National School Climate Center will compile all of the results and conduct a thorough data analysis. When this process is completed, NSCC will send us a detailed report with our results. These findings will be analyzed by the school’s representative leadership team and will be used to inform future school planning initiatives. We plan to share the results when the report is received and hope you will join us in this effort to make our schools even better places to learn. Thank you for your support!
Questions regarding the survey should be directed to the building principal or Dr. Denise Torma, Assistant Superintendent, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610 966-8376. Any technical questions or concerns can be directed to Michael Mohn, Director of Technology, at email@example.com.
