2019 Parent & Guardian and Student Surveys

Every year, the Office of Research and Evaluation conducts surveys multiple school stakeholders. The District-wide Survey program reaches thousands of District students, teachers, principals, and parents/guardians annually.

The surveys were designed to capture feedback from the school community on five key topics related to school improvement—climate, instruction, leadership, professional capacity, and parent/guardian-community ties. With an eye toward the Action Plan 3.0 goal of creating an equitable system of schools, this feedback provides a more complete picture of Philadelphia schools than relying solely on traditional measures of school success. By considering the perspectives of different groups in a school, this feedback can help pinpoint what is working well in a school along with areas that need to be improved.

Parents and guardians will need their child’s Student ID Number to complete the survey and may complete the survey for each child they have in a Philadelphia School. Surveys are available in the nine major language of the District.
