The Department of Research, Assessment, and Evaluation routinely conducts surveys of the MNPS community to collect student, employee, and family feedback.


School Climate Survey

The annual School Climate Survey captures student, teacher, and staff perspectives on their school's climate. This survey measures four dimensions of school climate:  safety and trusting relationships, high expectations, civility and equity, and student-centered classrooms.
