L.A. Unified today launched its eighth annual School Experience Survey, which gathers important information from students, parents and faculty about the teaching and learning environment at their campus. The deadline is February 11 to complete the confidential survey, which will be sent home with students and is also available online. The survey focuses on school climate, with questions on learning opportunities, social and emotional learning, parent involvement and safety. “Communication and collaboration are critical to student achievement, and the School Experience Survey is the perfect place to start,” said Superintendent Michelle King. “The feedback we receive will provide valuable information about our successes and our challenges.
