It's time to take the IUSD Annual Survey!
If you haven't already done so, please take a few minutes to complete our IUSD Annual Survey. This is the fifth year that every school in Irvine Unified will administer a climate survey. By making this an annual district-wide effort, we can begin to understand our most compelling needs and measure our growth over time.
Obtaining stakeholder feedback regarding school climate and school-community relationship is critical for guiding our continuous improvement efforts. It also allows IUSD to dedicate resources through our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) to ensure that we serve our students, support our staff, and remain connected to our communities. To learn more about the LCAP and the importance of the Annual Survey, please watch this three-minute informative video. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the IUSD Annual Survey! We know that this is a busy time of year and we appreciate you dedicating your time to provide us candid and constructive feedback. The survey will be open until February 7, 2020. All responses to this survey are anonymous and will be kept strictly confidential.
