Which Individual and School-Level Factors Predict Student Perceptions of the School Climate in a Diverse Sample of Charter Schools Throughout the Country?

By |2019-06-24T11:44:49-05:00June 24, 2019|

This working paper on student perceptions of their school culture and climate was produced as part of a multi-year partnership between Transforming Education & NewSchools Venture Fund. As part of this partnership, nearly 3,000 students in grades 4-12 from 18 innovative schools across the country were asked about their perceptions of seven distinct aspects of the school’s culture and climate: cultural and linguistic competence, learning strategies, rigorous expectations, school safety, sense of belonging, student engagement, and teacher-student relationships. The paper explores student and school-level factors that predict students’ perception of the school climate in this diverse sample of charter schools throughout the country.

Making Sense of Social-Emotional Survey Results Using the CORE Districts’ Benchmarking Data

While there has been a growing interest among districts and schools to expand their definition of student success to focus on the whole child, many educators still lack the measures needed to prioritize and inform this work. The CORE Districts, a group of districts in California committed to measuring and supporting an expanded definition of student success, have created a survey to identify the social-emotional strengths and needs for students in grades 4-12. This survey asks students about their perceptions of their own growth mindset, self-efficacy, self-management, and social awareness. Through Transforming Education’s resources and the Assessment Work Group Assessment Guide, the survey is freely accessible to any school or district seeking to administer it.
