Re: Reminder to complete School Climate Survey that was emailed last week.


Dear GNBVT Parents/Guardians and Students,

As part of our relationship with the National School Climate Center (NSCC), we are asking all parents/ guardians to complete the Comprehensive School Climate Inventory (CSCI) survey.  Different versions of the survey will be given to students and staff, which will allow us to hear from every single member of our school community. The survey is designed to assess perceptions of school climate, including feelings about safety, relationships, learning, the environment, and communication within the school.

The survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Your feedback is important to helping Greater New Bedford Regional Voc-Tech High School understand and improve the specific climate issues in our school. All responses are anonymous. There are no names or other personally identifying information attached to the survey. Furthermore, results will not be disaggregated for sub-groups with ten or fewer constituents in order to protect their confidentiality.

The CSCI will be administered beginning May 13, 2021. All surveys must be completed no later than May 21, 2021Please check your email for the link to your survey.

NSCC will compile all of the results and conduct a thorough data analysis. When this process is. completed, NSCC will send us a detailed report with our results. These findings will be analyzed by the school’s representative leadership team and will be used to inform future school planning initiatives. We plan to hold a community meeting to discuss the results when the report is received.

We will provide more information about this meeting and hope you will join us in this effort to make our school an even better place to learn. Thank you for your help!
