Introduction

Thank you for participating in this survey. The survey asks questions about how you feel about your school. The questions include how people get along, what your teachers do in the classroom, and school safety.

Your answers will be used to improve the school experience for you, your fellow students, and your teachers. Your teachers and other staff in your school will also have the chance to complete similar surveys. Even your parents will receive a survey and the chance to have their say.

Your school wants to hear from everyone, so your participation is very important. But it’s also voluntary. You do not have to take the survey and you can skip any question you don’t want to answer.

Please answer the questions as best you can. If you are unsure about the meaning of a survey question, do your best to answer it on your own. In order to maintain privacy, your teacher can read the questions aloud or provide a brief explanation. But the teacher will not be able to help you answer the questions.

Similarly, you should not ask other students or look at their responses.

The survey has about 45 questions.  When you have finished the survey, please sit quietly and do not disturb your fellow students.

The survey should take about 10 - 15 minutes to complete.  

Thank you in advance for your help and honesty!
