The Kansas Department of Education (KSDE) is partnering with McREL International to gather student, parent and teacher perceptions of their school environments through surveys. The purpose of these surveys is to help educators throughout the state of Kansas gain deeper knowledge about student learning, classroom practices, instructional planning, and student assessments.
This survey has the potential used as a Student Growth Measure for building leaders as buildings will receive anonymous aggregate information for their building!
