Parental Notification/Opt-out Form – School Climate Survey: Middle/High

Hamady Middle School/ High School has been participating in Michigan’s Promoting Positive School Climate (PPSC) project to enhance positive behavior support in our school. The School Climate Survey: Middle/High is a student perception survey required by PPSC. It is an anonymous survey used to identify school climate issues within our school. The survey for middle and high school students includes 9 questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Additionally, there are demographic questions, including grade, race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, and sexual orientation. Students always have the option to mark “I prefer not to answer” for all demographic questions.

The data collected from the survey will be used to identify student perceptions of school climate issues within our school. School staff use the results to inform our efforts at improving our school climate. Demographic data is needed in order to disaggregate the results by different groups to look at perceptions of school climate from different students’ perspectives. There are also parent and staff versions of the survey that will be examined along with the student results.

Responses are housed securely and in an anonymous format with the University of Oregon Technical Assistance Center projects for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46).

Our desire is to involve parents in their children’s education.If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Thompson. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this important activity, please sign and return this form to the school by October 1st.
