5th and 6th Grade Parents To Take California Schools Parent Survey Prior To March 21st

All 5th and 6th grade parents are encouraged to take the California Schools Parent Survey (CSPS) before March 21st.

Please click this link to access the survey: https://wested.ugam-apps.com/wed/ts/naZQ

The CalSCHLS system was created by the California Department of Education (CDE) in 1997 to efficiently and cost-effectively provide school districts and their partner communities with quality local data which can be used to improve student academic performance and social-emotional, behavioral, and physical health of all youth. It assesses key indicators linked to success in school, career, and life. There are three parts to this survey:

  •  California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) - Completed by 5th grade students in their Social Studies classroom on Wednesday, March 23rd
  • California School Staff Survey (CSSS) - taken by Dana Staff
  • California School Parent Survey (CSPS)

All three surveys were developed by WestEd with the help of Duerr Evaluation Resources and expert advisory committees of educators, researchers, and practitioners. The staff and parent surveys were added to address the needs of districts for data on school working conditions, parent involvement, and enable comparison of staff and parent perspectives to student self-reports. Follow this link for more information.

Parents can choose to opt their child out of this survey. Click this link to submit your opt out form.
