The School Climate and Connectedness Survey Window Now Open

For the last 5 years Hartford Public Schools has been administering the “School Climate and Connectedness Survey” to our students in grades 3-12 as well as our families and our staff.  Grades 3-4 students are given a different survey than students in grades 5-12.  The purpose of the surveys is to collect data as a district and at our individual schools that can gauge how our students, families, and staff feel about safety, school climate, bullying, being connected, family friendliness, and other areas that are important to provide a nurturing learning environment for all of our students.  The data is then used by schools and the district to guide our supports for our students, families, and staff. 

 

The survey administration window is from February 1, 2016 through March 24, 2016.  

 


 

En los últimos 5 años las Escuelas Públicas de Hartford han estado suministrando a nuestros estudiantes de grados 3 al 12, así como a nuestras familias y a nuestro personal, la encuesta de Ambiente y Conectividad Escolar.

 

A los estudiantes de grados 3 y 4 se les da una encuesta diferente a la de los estudiantes de grados 5 al 12.

 

El objeto de esta encuesta es recabar o coleccionar información en nuestro distrito y en cada una de las escuelas, que nos dé una idea de lo que piensan nuestros estudiantes, familias y nuestro personal acerca del ambiente escolar, matoneo, relación interpersonal, amistad familiar y otras áreas que son importantes para proveer un ambiente de aprendizaje educacional a todos nuestros estudiantes.

 

La información será después usada por las escuelas y el distrito para guiar nuestro apoyo a nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal.

 

El plazo para completar la encuesta es desde Febrero 1 a Marzo 24 del 2016.
