District-Wide Survey Technical Reports

The School District of Philadelphia District-Wide Surveys represent a unique opportunity for students, parents/guardians, teachers, principals/assistant principals, and support staff in Philadelphia’s District, Charter, and Alternative schools to share their perspectives and provide feedback about how they experience and perceive their schools. Our goal is that the feedback from the surveys be rigorous, actionable data that can be used to improve our city’s schools.

The technical report describes the framework that guided survey development, the administration of the surveys, the processes of survey reliability testing and validation, and the construction of school-level scores for reports.
