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 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

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