Important Survey-Please Read!


The parent CCRPI climate surveys for the 2015-2016 school year are officially open. These survey results are used in the STAR rating calculations. Non participation or low participation could adversely affect our STAR Climate Rating. A growing body of research indicates that schools with positive school climate ratings have better test scores and higher graduation rates. School climate refers to the quality and character of school life. The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument. We need your help and want to hear from you. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey in order to let us know how we are doing so we can plan and adjust accordingly. Your voice is important!

The Survey Link will close April 1, 2016. Below is a link to the State Survey:
