• PPS Families: Help us improve school culture and climate by taking Successful Schools Survey

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    If you are the parent or guardian of a Portland Public Schools student, ask yourself: How is the educational climate at the school? Portland Public Schools is looking for answers to this and other key questions from family members of PPS students as part of the Successful Schools Survey. Students in grades 5, 7 and 10 also are being surveyed, and school-based staff will participate starting Feb. 19.

    Parents and guardians, we need your feedback as the survey is a major tool in our move to use data to make informed decisions about school climate and culture. Your portion of the survey, which is fully anonymous, will cover these topics about your child’s school:

    • School fit
    • School climate
    • Barriers to engagement
    • School safety

    Families can take the survey online through the survey webpage, where versions are available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Russian and Somali. Families who don’t have access to a computer can take the survey in a printed version. Please request a copy at your school’s office.

    NOTE: The deadline for families has been extended to March 15.
