Take the California School Climate Survey!

Your voice - with the voices of other parents from your child's school and other Pasadena Unified School District campuses USD schools - is essential to ensure that limited resources are spent wisely, for the maximum benefit of your child and all children in our community. This is YOUR chance to be HEARD. Our district and our state depend on the results of this survey to make important decisions about how to improve school climate and safety, eliminate barriers to learning, and promote the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of all students. Please set aside 15-20 minutes to take this survey. It will be available to take until the end of May.

The California School Parent Survey (CSPS), along with the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) and the California School Staff Survey (CSSS) is a service of the California Department of Education (CDE). These three surveys form the California School Climate, Health, and Learning Surveys (CalSCHLS) System, the largest, most comprehensive state effort in the nation to regularly assess students, staff, and parents at the local level to provide key data on school climate and safety, learning supports and barriers, and stakeholder engagement, as well as youth development, health, and well-being.
These surveys grew out of CDE’s commitment to helping schools promote the successful cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of all students; create more positive, engaging school environments for students, staff, and parents; and ensure college and career readiness. They provide a wealth of information to guide school improvement and Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) efforts, particularly in regard to the state priorities of enhancing school climate, pupil engagement, parent involvement, and addressing the needs of vulnerable groups.
