The Long Beach Unified School District is conducting surveys of parents, students and staff in the coming weeks regarding the culture and climate of local schools.
The surveys are an important part of the school district's accountability plan. LBUSD is part of a collaborative of nine school districts that are using a new index, based upon multiple measures, to provide schools, teachers and parents with more and better information to improve student learning. Thousands of surveys will be administered in the participating school districts in January and February. Data from the surveys will be among the multiple measures used to calculate the new index.
Individual survey takers will receive additional information on how to participate. Meanwhile, more information and samples of the surveys are available here.
