Darling-Hammond, Linda; DePaoli, Jennifer – State Education Standard, 2020

Kraft, Mathew A.; Falken, Grace T. – State Education Standard, 2020

Osher, David; Neiman, Sam; Williamson, Sandra – State Education Standard, 2020
When done reliably and efficiently, measuring school climate can help improve schools' vital signs and help state boards of education realize their goals and objectives for the system as a whole.
