In spring 2021, new questions related to the topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion were added to the District-Wide Surveys. This is the second report exploring these survey responses from 2020-21. The first report can be found here.

After analyzing school-level topic scores containing the new questions, key findings include:

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) topic scores are moderately correlated with Climate, Instruction, and Leadership topic scores on the District-Wide Surveys.
  • School-level student and teacher demographics were related to school-level student DEI scores but not teacher DEI scores.
  • Student DEI scores were related to school-level student achievement on the math interim assessment but not the reading interim assessment.
  • Teacher DEI scores were not related to school-level teacher retention rates after controlling for other school-level factors.
