AASB 2023 School Climate and Connectedness Survey

2023 School Climate and Connectedness Survey ©




Dear Parent or Guardian,


The Anchorage School District is partnering with the Association of Alaska School Boards to conduct the School Climate and Connectedness Survey ©, a statewide survey taken by students, staff, and families. This survey measures their perceptions of each school’s climate, including the engagement of students, staff, and families.


The Student Survey will be given to students in grades 11-12 at King Tech High School during the week of February 20th through March 9th.  Students will complete the survey online during the school day.


The student survey will ask questions such as how students feel about school rules, their perceptions of how students treat each other, their relationships with staff, social and emotional skills, and observed risk behaviors of other students at school and school events. There are different surveys for younger students (grades 3-5) and older students (grades 6-12).


Family Survey: We also value input from our families. You are an important partner as we work to continually improve each school’s environment. Each parent/guardian is asked to complete one survey between February 20th to March 24th. If you have more than one child attending this school, you only need to fill out one survey.

All surveys are voluntary, anonymous, confidential, and do not ask questions about students’ families. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please notify the school in writing, by February 24th.


A copy of this letter, and the survey link, will be posted on King Tech website.


Results from this survey will be used to identify student, staff and family perceptions of school climate issues within our school(s). School staff use the results to inform their efforts to ensure schools are safe, supportive, and caring places for all students.


Thank you for your cooperation in this year’s School       Climate and Connectedness
