School Summaries of DWS Results

The table below has links to individual school summaries of District-Wide Survey results.  The 2018-19 column includes links to a two-page summary report of survey results for each school.  The 2017-18 column includes links to a two-page Snapshot of Parent/Guardian responses to selected questions (if enough parent/guardian responses were received that year).

In order to locate a school-specific report, please type the school name into the search box at the top right of the table. You can also search for specific School IDs, filter by 2018-19 Learning Network, and sort the table by clicking on any of the column headers.

2019-20 School Summary Reports:
Frequently Asked Questions

Why are some reports missing?

If your school does not have a report for the 2019-20 school year, it is because not enough students, parents/guardians, or teachers completed the survey.

How did the transition to digital learning due to Covid-19 impact administration of the DWS?

We extended all survey windows.  The window for the student, teacher, and principal surveys was open until June 15, and the window for the parent/guardian survey was open until July 15. Respondents who had not already completed the survey when digital learning began were instructed to answer survey questions based on their overall experience for the entire school year. In addition, the employment and enrollment snapshot date used to calculate teacher, student, and parent/guardian response rates in 2019-20 was changed to March 13, 2020. This was the last day that students were in school before schools transitioned to digital learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.

Why can't I compare parent response rates from year to year?

Thanks to our new Student Information System (SIS), we now have a way to track student households. This means that we are now using the number of unique student households per school to calculate the parent response rate, rather than the total number of students. Because this method of tracking response rates was not available prior to 2018-19, we cannot compare subsequent response rates to those from prior years.

How can the response rate be over 100%?

For teachers, we calculate response rates based on the number of active teachers at each school as of May 31. Sometimes teachers who are on extended leave complete the survey if they still have access to their employee portal, and some teachers respond earlier in the survey window and then leave the school. Both these situations could result in a response rate over 100%.

For students, we calculate response rates based on the number of enrolled students in grades 3-12 at each school as of May 31. If a student completes the survey while enrolled at your school and then moves to a different school, their response will still count for your school. In some situations, it is possible for a school to have more responses than students enrolled on May 31.

For parents, we are calculating the rate based on the total number of households rather than the total number of students. If parents/guardians respond for multiple children within a household, this can result in a rate over 100%.

How many respondents are needed in order for the data to be displayed?

For topics and sub-topics that are just for teachers, there must be at least five respondents.

For topics and sub-topics that include parents/guardians and/or students, there must be at least 25 respondents.

Why are some years missing data in the line graph?

The response rate thresholds are applied to each year’s data. A missing dot on the line graph means that the minimum number of respondents did not respond to that topic in that year.

Why are there fewer than five dots on my radar plot?

The response rate thresholds are applied to each topic. A missing dot on the radar plot means that the minimum number of respondents did not respond to that topic in that year.

How are the topic and sub-topic scores calculated?

Each response option for each question is given a numeric value, with the most positive response option getting the highest and the least positive response option the lowest. Next, the numeric responses for all the questions in a sub-topic or topic are averaged. Then, the averages are converted to a 1-10 scale. A sub-topic or topic score of 10 means that all respondents selected the most positive response options for all the questions in the sub-topic or topic.

What does N/A mean?

Not all respondent groups are asked questions that align to each of the five topics. If this is the case, N/A (not applicable) appears in place of a topic score or sub-topic score.

What does i.s. mean?

When the number of respondents falls below the minimum threshold, i.s. (insufficient sample) appears in place of a topic or sub-topic score.

What if I still have questions?
