Virginia Student Climate Survey 2023 Opt-Out
LCPS will be administering the 2023 Virginia School Climate Survey to all middle school students in January and February. LCPS is required by the Commonwealth of Virginia to offer the survey to all of the students in our school. However, the survey is voluntary and students may choose not to participate. All responses are anonymous and confidential. Our school uses the results of this survey to plan strategies for supporting the academic, social-emotional, and safety needs of our students.
More information about this survey can be found here: https://www.dcjs.virginia.gov/virginia-center-school-and-campus-safety/school-safety-survey/secondary-school-climate-survey
If parents/guardians do not want their student to participate in this survey, they should complete the online opt-out form by December 16.

If parents/ guardians do approve of their student participating, no further action is needed.
