Last year, District 34 collected information about social-emotional learning and student well being through a survey from Panorama Education. Panorama is our partner in helping District 34 improve school climate and culture, social-emotional learning and student well being and outcomes. We will again administer the Panorama survey this year. The fall window for the survey is September 20 - October 8, 2021.
The K-2 survey will be an observational perception survey completed by the classroom teacher. Students in grades 3-8 will take the online survey. Per Board Policy 7:15, you have the right to review the survey questions and decide if you do not wish your child to participate. If you would like to review the questions, please contact me for a copy of the survey. If you do not wish your child to take the survey, please email both me and your child's principal by September 15, 2021
Our partnership in supporting children continues to be critically important, so we want to know what parents think, too. The parent survey asks questions like:
- To what extent do you know how your child is doing socially at school?
- To what extent do you think that children enjoy going to your child's school?
- How concerned are you about your child's emotional well-being this school year?
The data will allow District 34 to identify what we are doing well and where we can focus our efforts, including family support, school climate and developing grit.
The completely anonymous parent online survey will take less than 10 minutes. Families will receive an email with more specific information and the survey link later this month.
