Your Input is Needed
Norman Public Schools is seeking parent/guardian input through a School Perception Survey. This survey aims to understand your opinions about student learning, school safety, and overall school climate in Norman. Your responses will be helpful in improving district efforts to support the mental, emotional, social, and behavioral health of students as well as Norman's readiness to implement prevention practices in these areas. The survey is completely anonymous and brief; it contains 56 questions and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. Survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance our school climate. You may access the survey by clicking here or by using the QR code located in the picture above. It will be open for response until November 30th.
We want your child to be successful in school and that means supporting and encouraging their whole development. While excelling in academic classes is important, children also need skills to take on learning challenges, make good decisions, manage strong emotions, and get along with others.
Please see below to learn more about what your child is learning next week and find guiding questions to assist with continuing the conversation at home. Families can also visit The Second Step Family Webpage to view full lessons and student handouts.
