Successful School Survey

Your voice can improve your school

From Jan. 20 - Feb. 28, 2015



PPS will provide an important opportunity for families, staff and students to share their experiences in our schools.


The Successful Schools Survey will focus on school climate – such as whether a school feels welcoming and safe and in what ways teaching and learning is supported. The survey comes at the request of the Portland School Board and Superintendent Carole Smith.

School Survey - All Voices Matter

Surveys are filled out anonymously.

The survey will be available to 5th, 7th and 10th grade students, PPS staff and PPS families of all students at all grade levels.

The survey will be available in English, Chinese, Somali, Spanish, Russian and Vietnamese.

The parent/family members survey will be administered through our survey partner, Oregon’s Kitchen Table, and the PSU Policy Consensus Center.

Goal of the survey

This measurable, specific feedback will shape an action plan for the continuous improvement of schools and services to children and families. For more information, please click here.
