Climate and Connectedness

Climate and Connectedness Survey

The Climate and Connectedness Survey provides the district, schools and the community with information about the perceptions and experiences of students, staff and parents/guardians for use in setting school goals and redirecting resources.


The survey will give principals and school staff valid and reliable data regarding school climate and connectedness, which have been shown to be pre-conditions for learning to take place.


The student and staff surveys were designed by the American Institutes for Research in conjunction with the Association of Alaska School Boards.
