School Climate Surveys
Ladue School District is committed to supporting the well-being of students, their families, and staff. As part of our commitment, the district administers climate/culture and equity/inclusion surveys to gather valuable perception information. Ladue Schools began utilizing Panorama Education services in the fall of 2021 to conduct bi-annual (fall and spring) perception surveys. Panorama safeguards participant privacy, keeping responses confidential. As a reminder, the Panorama survey is one data point, as the district utilizes a variety of tools to guide us in creating a greater sense of belonging and inclusivity for all stakeholders in the Ladue School District. The goal of the school climate survey focuses on the following six areas:
- Elevating all stakeholder voices
- Collecting actionable data and information for strategic planning
- Focusing on school climate and culture
- Supporting students’ social-emotional well-being
- Determining the impact of DEI-related action steps
- Increasing family and community engagement
What information does DESE require for surveys?
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) requires us to administer surveys at the district's discretion for school improvement. The first cycle of the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 6) began with the 2022-2023 school year. The continuous improvement domain contains a climate and culture component that includes surveying students, teachers, staff, and parents to obtain feedback to be analyzed in planning and developing our school's Continuous Improvement Plan. The climate and culture survey must address the following three essential indicators: student voices are heard and respected, school culture and climate data and reports are provided to stakeholders, and educator teams address positive classroom learning environments.
We greatly value your voice and participation.
