The U.S. Department of Education requires that we survey our students, families and staff to provide a comprehensive picture of our schools' climate. A multi-perspective approach is important because each of the stakeholders experience school climate differently.
The ED School Climate Surveys (EDSCLS) are a suite of survey instruments developed for schools, districts, and states by the U.S. Department of Education's (ED) National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Lumberton community members can take the survey by clicking here:https://rowan.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5n0v9SwwVcZgRNP (English and Spanish)
This survey will close for responses on Friday, March 19th.
