Hanover understands best practices in school/district climate and developed this survey to help districts measure school climate in a single year or longitudinally.
To develop the survey instrument, content experts and survey methodologists worked collaboratively to identify key climate constructs and sub-constructs. We relied heavily on school climate literature and referenced existing survey instruments such as the Department of Education climate survey. Moreover, Hanover has designed and analyzed hundreds of climate survey instruments for our K12 partners over the years. As a result, we could analyze the core themes and foci from these survey instruments in order to confidently develop an instrument that meets our K12 client’s needs.
The following survey aims to collect perspectives from students, parents, staff, and community members.
