Teacher School Climate Survey

The School Climate Survey for teachers is administered annually and includes 72 items measuring many aspects of the school environment. Three “summative” items summarizing the three main survey sections are included on the School Report Card. Recently, the Education Oversight Committee amended the school accountability formula to include information from the teacher (and student) climate surveys as part of a school’s yearly accountability score. The School Climate Survey asks teachers to infer perceptions about a larger group (e.g., “Students at my school are motivated and interested in learning”).
