Dear Elem/HS Parents/Guardians:
We want to hear about your experience with your student’s education. We invite you to participate in completing the School Climate Survey. This survey includes questions about your student’s learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment. Beginning today, Monday, January 10th, we invite all parents, guardians and caretakers to complete this survey for our school. The survey is completely anonymous and brief; it contains 21 questions and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. You can take the survey online by using the following unique school link: https://forms.gle/SjnDow71A8YFS5uZ7.
Please submit your responses by January 14th, 2022. All your responses are completely anonymous. We have no way to connect you to your answers, and results will only be reported as group responses. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to know about your personal experiences. Responses are housed securely in an anonymous format with the University of Oregon Technical Assistance Center projects for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46).
As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent, caregiver or guardian at your student’s school. Please answer all of the questions, or your answers won’t be recorded, but you can mark “I prefer not to answer” if you don’t want to answer a question about you. We hope you will take the time to provide us with this valuable information. Feel free to call our office at (918) 658-3368, if you have any questions. Each school’s total survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance our school climate. The link to complete the survey is https://forms.gle/SjnDow71A8YFS5uZ7.
We will be giving each of our high school students a survey as well. The School Climate Survey is an anonymous survey used to identify school climate issues within our school. The survey for middle and high school students includes 9 questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
If you do NOT want your child to participate in this survey, please go to the link below and complete the Parental Notification/Opt-out form. If you are supportive of your child taking the 9 question survey then there is nothing for you to do. The survey will be given to students during the window of January 17th-19th, 2022.
