WV School Climate Surveys

October 25, 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian/Caregiver,

The WV Board of Education requires all schools to engage in continuous school improvement. In doing so schools should engage in a data-driven school climate planning process, identify its needs, and work to increase school safety and create a positive learning environment.

To support that process schools will be doing surveys to gather information about the learning and teaching environment, the health and well-being of students, and supports for parents, school staff, and students that foster learning and success. This letter is about one of these surveys to learn about parents’ opinions about the schools their children attend.

Knowing how you feel about your child’s school is an extremely important part of improving schools, so we are inviting you to fill out a parent survey. The survey is completely voluntary. Although we value your opinion and hope you will participate, you may choose not to, or to not answer any question on the survey you do not want to answer. Also, you are not asked to provide your name or any other identifying information.

You can fill out the parent survey online at (Insert the parent survey link provided in the parent survey instruction sheet). To access the survey you will need to enter this login code (Insert the school specific parent login code provided in the parent survey instruction sheet).

You, also, can access the following information to further this process or provide further understanding: Please find all the surveys on the far left.  Please use the print versions above for only a preview of the survey.  Please submit your survey via the electronic option to the left.  If you do not have a means to take the survey electronically, please call Mrs. Sherry at 304-291-9340 to schedule a time to come to the school to take it.  Thanks!

If you have any questions about the content/need/reasoning/delivery of the surveys please contact the WV Department of Education, Office of Research at 304-558-2546.
