Climate survey presentation to the Board of Trustees, Jan. 24, 2019 (en español)

The MVWSD Climate Survey was taken by all staff, parents and students in grades 5 and 7 in fall 2018. It provides information beyond test scores that helps us improve our schools. Thank you for your participation.

Additionally, students in grades 6 and 8 participated in a social-emotional survey that will be used by the District's Health and Wellness Committee to plan programs and supports for students' emotional health.

This survey was administered online through Panorama Education using nationally benchmarked questions. Your answers to the survey are confidential and compiled and analyzed by Panorama, a third party. Personal results are not identifiable.

In addition to completing LCAP requirements, the data will help inform work on the District's strategic plan goals and provide longitudinal data for year-to year comparisons. The questions are drawn from an archive of research-based questions in broad theme areas of engagement, instruction, school safety and school environment. We asked students, parents and staff members about their impressions of our District sites. This is a great opportunity for us to get feedback and continue to work together to improve our schools.
