SEL Screener Window Oct. 4-8th

This year, our District will implement a social-emotional survey for students as we seek to understand students’ social-emotional needs during this time. The survey will measure students’ competencies in the areas of growth mindset, self-efficacy, self-management and social awareness, including student perceptions on school climate and culture. 

This survey will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. Students will take the survey via our District’s Illuminate online platform. Our school and educators will use data from the survey to continue to understand and support students’ needs. 

Please see the information that is available to families regarding the survey, survey window and implementation here

All children in grades 4 –12 are scheduled to participate. If you wish for your child to NOT participate in this survey, please contact Vice Principal Perkins at mperkins1@sandi.net by Wednesday, September 29th.
