• School Climate Survey Information for Teachers and Non Instructional Staff

    Survey link:

    This year the district will be partnering with Nassau BOCES to conduct a School Climate Survey to be completed by teachers, staff, parents of students in Grades K-12, and students in Grades 5-12 only. Seeking insight from all constituent groups provides us with an opportunity to work together in contributing to a shared school vision.

    School climate refers to the quality and character of school life, and research has shown that it has a very sizable impact on student learning. The School Climate Survey serves as a tool to help administrators gain an in-depth understanding of our school climate and how the District can best meet the needs of our students, families, faculty and staff. Participants will be asked about their perceptions on topics such as student engagement, school environment, and school safety.

    The research-based survey was developed by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. Nassau BOCES is hosting the survey on their digital platform which can be accessed online for a two-week window, March 18th – March 29th. The results will solely be shared with the District.

    Please see the information below explaining how you can access the surveys for Instructional and Non-Instructional Staff.

    Survey link:

    • Generic usernames to access the survey will be available in your mail box located in your school’s main office on Monday, March 18th.
    • Please be sure to select the proper document based on your role in the district. There are usernames for Instructional Staff and usernames for Non-Instructional Staff.
    • Please note:
      • All usernames are generic building codes; they are not assigned to individual user identities.
      • Once you enter the username, it will direct you to the appropriate survey-- either Instructional or Non-Instructional.
      • This is a one-time username; at the start of the survey you’ll be prompted to record a pin number in the event you want to complete the survey in more than one sitting.
      • If you work in more than one building, you are welcome to complete a survey for both locations.

    The survey results, which will not identify any person or their responses, will help the District improve student relationships, learning conditions, and the school’s overall environment. As always, our ultimate goal is to continually foster student growth and achievement, along with ensuring our student, faculty, and staff’s sense of well-being.

    Your participation is completely voluntary. However, we hope you will take the time to fill out the survey. For your preview, the survey questions are attached, but please keep in mind that the survey must be completed online via the link listed above. You may answer any or all of the questions. 

    If you have any questions, please contact me, your building principal, or Nassau BOCES School Climate Survey Services at schoolclimatesurvey@nasboces.org or (516) 832-2801.
