5. School Climate Survey Extension The survey will remain on the District 13 website for one more week (until February 8th) to allow parents a chance to complete the survey multiple times if you have children in more than one District school.
The survey focuses on the issue of bullying in the schools. This is part of the district's outreach to determine how safe students feel in their respective buildings. Surveys are anonymous and results will be posted soon.
The more parents that complete the survey, the better the data we have regarding the perception of bullying in our schools. This is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WCYKTYW.
