School Climate Surveys: District Results for 2011-12
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. In 2011-2012, the survey was distributed to approximately 93,000 parents, 52,000 elementary, secondary, and adult students, and 24,000 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 providing districtwide averages, results are presented by regional center. The information is summarized for the district as well as the regular schools of each region. Alternative, special education, and vocational/adult schools are treated elsewhere in separate item-specific reports. 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, students, and staff from all school levels (elementary, K-8, middle, and senior high) provided overall school grades in the "A" to "B" range. Methodological Notes and District Summary of Parent, Student, and Staff Responses are appended. (Contains 7 tables.) [For the 2010-11 report, see ED536877.]
