Itasca ISD Students to Take PASS Survey

We are writing to inform you of your student’s participation in a brief survey to assist us in uncovering and addressing the social and emotional well-being of our students. With a continued commitment to addressing barriers to learning, we are asking that all students enrolled in our school complete the Pupil Attitudes to Self and School (PASS) survey. Developed by a team of educational psychologists from multiple universities, PASS provides teachers with highly reliable and valid information about how they feel about themselves as learners and how they feel about school. Available in twenty languages, PASS allows schools to detect possible barriers to student learning, including issues around confidence, resilience, motivation, and concentration. The PASS survey will allow our school to proactively address non-academic barriers to learning, which can compromise our students' well-being and academic success. The PASS survey will be administered this spring in May. Please be assured that student confidentiality will be strictly protected. Please contact your student's campus for more information.
