Frequently Asked Questions
An engagement survey is a tool used by school districts to measure and assess the level of engagement, satisfaction, and overall sentiment of their stakeholders (i.e., parents/guardians, students, and/or staff members), and it is customized based on the respondent group.
- Parent/Guardian/Family engagement surveys usually ask questions about parent perceptions of the overall school climate, school environment, communication, interactions with teachers/staff/school leadership, as well as ask questions about their child(ren)’s level of engagement, satisfaction, and involvement in their academic experiences and campus life. The results of this survey help school and district leaders understand parent satisfaction and ways to improve parent engagement/involvement and satisfaction, as well as students’ needs, identify areas for improvement, and create strategies to enhance the overall educational experience for students.
- Student engagement surveys are a tool used by school districts to assess the level of engagement, satisfaction, and involvement of students in their academic experiences and campus life. This survey usually consists of questions that cover various aspects of the student experience, such as the quality of teaching, availability of resources, extracurricular activities, and overall campus environment. The results of this survey help school and district leaders understand students’ needs, identify areas for improvement, and create strategies to enhance the overall educational experience for students.
