District-wide Survey Overview

Our 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.

Survey results can be found HERE. Our interactive data tool provides you with the ability to view multiple years of survey results and data, as well as break down results by school, school type, demographic information (student/parent), grade level (student/parent), and gender (student/parent).  A technical report (updated with 2016-17 data) can be found HERE.

PDF copies of past and current surveys can be found HERE.
