TENNESSEE SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY

Dear Parent/Guardian,

In order to help us ensure a safe and supportive school environment….. Bradley County Schools is conducting a survey about school climate and learning in school. Student participation from the survey will help us gain knowledge about how to improve the school environment and increase academic success. The survey will be administered to students in grades 3-12.  We will also be seeking your input in a climate survey for parents.

We are asking for your child to participate in the survey as we value their input. The survey is voluntary and anonymous.  It includes questions about relationships with teachers, school principals; school safety, bullying, and substance use; and school rules and the school environment.

The Tennessee Department of Education sponsors this survey. The survey will take about 12-15 minutes for students to complete.  Students will take the survey at school and may skip any question they do not want to answer or may stop taking the survey at any time.  Your child’s teacher will be there to help answer questions.  This survey is designed to protect privacy. Names are not asked on the survey.

If you do not want your child to participate in the survey, please send written notification to the school before the window opens on January 25th.  You may contact your child’s teacher or principal with any questions about the survey.
