Publishing Threshold

Summary results below for the 2015-16 survey include only school sites and administrators that had at least 50% of members at that site participating in the survey. Some school sites did not have sufficient survey submissions to have the scores tabulated.

This year, we had at least 50% participation for 28 schools (compared to 20 schools last year) and 29 principals (compared to 15 principals last year). Results were published for those schools and principals below.

Scoring and Grading Rubric

All questions in the School Climate survey were based on a 5 point scale with a calculated average score. All questions in the Administrator Survey were based on a 4 point scale with a calculated average score. The grade percentage was calculated by dividing the average score and the total point scale. The letter grade uses the following standard rubric:

A    90-100%
B    80-89%
C    70-79%
D   60-69%
F    59% or below
