School Climate Surveys: District Results for 2008-09
Research Services, Miami-Dade County Public Schools
Each school year, the School Climate Survey is administered to gather information on the perceptions that students, their parents, and school staffs hold concerning their schools and their performance. In 2008-2009, the survey was distributed to approximately 90,200 parents, 54,200 elementary, secondary, and adult students, and 25,000 staff. This report summarizes selected major points from the results of that survey, as they pertain to the Pre-K through 12th grade program. In addition to districtwide averages, results are broken down by regional center. Information identical to that summarized for the district is reviewed for the regular schools of each region. Alternative, special education, and vocational/adult schools are not included in this report. Results continue to be very similar to those in past years. Although there is variation from region to region, the majority of respondents from the three groups surveyed (parents, students, and staff) were satisfied with their schools in Miami-Dade County. An analysis of selected survey items indicates an overall increase in satisfaction over the past five years. As in previous survey administrations, at the district level parents and staff from all educational levels (elementary, K-8, middle, and senior high) provided overall school grades in the "B" range. In an improvement over past years, district averages from older students were also in the "B" range. Methodological Notes and District Summary of Parent, Student, and Staff Responses are appended. (Contains 6 tables.)
