Jefcoed Conducting Student Surveys for Learners

On Monday, February 8th, all students will complete two social-emotional learning surveys for data being gathered by the Guidance and Counseling Division of our district. Students who are traditional learners will complete these surveys during their advisory period on Monday. If your student is in a remote setting for any reason, please post assist us in having him/her complete the surveys before the end of the school day tomorrow. The instructions are below. Thank you for your assistance in helping us help our students with their learning needs as we work through the second half of the school year!


To take the survey, follow these steps:

1. Students will go to surveys.panoramaed.com/jefcoed


2. Enter your regular login number/State IDs(Example: 1960000000).


You will see 2 surveys:


3. Select and complete the first Survey with the title" Student SEL Competency and Well-being Measures"


4. Submit the 1st Survey


5. Select and complete the 2nd Survey with the title " Student Supports and Environment"
