Student Gallup Survey

Parent/Guardian:

Gallup Education has more than 40 years of data and analytics in the field of education. For the last seven years, Pasco schools has participated in the Gallup Student Poll. As we continue our partnership with Gallup, our students in grades 5-12 will be invited to participate in the Gallup Student Poll during the survey window of September 27 through October 22.

This confidential and anonymous survey will ask questions in the areas of engagement, hope, belonging, and social and emotional learning. The survey questions will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

After the poll closes, Gallup will aggregate and analyze the results. Every participating school and district will receive a scorecard. This initiative will give us a wealth of specific and actionable information that will help us lead our schools.
