School Climate & Culture Survey

Our intent with these survey benchmarks is to measure employee perspectives on issues of organizational culture, school climate and employee morale. Our belief is that these characteristics of the organization are not just linked with one another but also with development of K-12 leaders and successful schools.

The School Climate and Culture Survey is conducted with all school district employees via our online survey tool.
