21st Century Preparatory School is asking all parents, students and school personnel to participate in a scientific survey to assess school climate. In partnership with the Center for Social and Emotional Education (CSEE), we are administering the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) to parents and students during the weeks of 4/3/2017 to 4/13/2017. Parents may take the survey online via this unique survey link.
Students will take the survey with their classroom teacher, so the link above is for parents only.
The Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) measures school climate in two important ways. First, it evaluates virtually all of the dimensions that scholars and researchers believe color and shape school climate. Second, it is a 360 degree measure that recognizes the perspective of K-12 students, their parents/guardians, and school personnel. The CSCI will take students and adults only 15-20 minutes to complete and it evaluates four major dimensions of school climate: safety, teaching and learning, relationships, and environment. The CSCI findings will be utilized by the 21st Century Preparatory school to build community, promote student participation, develop school-home-community partnerships, and inform the ongoing development of a collaborative plan for school improvement.
The National School Climate Center, the non-profit organization that developed the survey instrument, was founded in 1997 at the Teacher’s College of Columbia University, and works with schools and districts nation-wide to support the development of healthy and positively engaged students.
Thank you in advance for your support in further developing the climate of 21st Century Preparatory School.
