Climate Survey Results Banner ImageThe following represents a summary of responses from elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as teachers, staff, and parents on the AdvancED Climate and Culture Survey (CCS). The CCS was structured so that respondents were asked to choose 4 words or phrases that best matched their experiences with their (or their children’s) school. The results are based on the percentage of respondents who chose a particular word or phrase in relation to the question stem. The questions were similar across all forms, although not all groups received all of the questions based on respondents’ age and/or if that respondent group had enough information to be able to accurately answer the question as it was posed.

Following the work of Ritchhart (2015), the AdvancED School Climate and Culture survey looks to get information across 8 different “forces” that shape school culture:
• Expectations – what are the expectations for students in a school?
• Language – what words do teachers use to shape what activities, thinking, and ideas are seen as being important?
• Time – how do those in a school feel about the time they have to do what they are asked to do in order to be successful?
• Modeling – what kinds of behaviors do adults in the school exhibit that can reinforce an effective learning culture?
• Opportunities – what opportunities do students have in the classroom to apply their skills and knowledge?
• Routines – what kinds of thinking and learning routines happen in the classroom and are they experiences as being a normal part of the everyday classroom culture?
• Interactions – what kinds of interactions do students have with adults in the school, do teachers have with peers, do parents have with staff, etc.?
• Environment – what is the experience of the physical spaces in which learning, teaching, and working happen?

In addition, a question related to how students, teachers, and staff “feel” while at school was asked.
