School Climate Surveys

Tacoma School District values input from parents, students and staff. The school district believes that a healthy school climate can contribute to the achievement of students. Therefore, the District Climate Survey was designed to gather opinions from our parents, students and staff concerning their perceptions of school climate. The survey covers topics of safety, communication, diversity, student learning and student-led conferences. 

Your input is very important. Your responses are strictly anonymous and you will not be asked to identify yourself at any time during the survey. The survey should take 7 to 10 minutes to complete.

The 2018 School Climate Survey will close April 30, 2018.

Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to respond.


Take the parent survey

For parents with students in more than one school, you have the option of:

  • complete one survey (if opinions about both schools are similar), or
  • complete a distinct survey for each school (if you would like to offer unique comments for each school)


The survey is for students in grades 4 through 12
