Learning Environment Surveys

In February, the New York City Department of Education will give the annual Learning Environment Survey to every parent, teacher, and 6-12th grade student citywide. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.  
The 2014-2015 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the 
DOE’s Capacity Framework. The survey will collect vital information about a school’s capacity to improve student achievement by measuring the extent to which each school incorporates the six essential elements— rigorous instruction, supportive environment, collaborative teachers, effective school leadership, strong family and community ties, and trust—that drive school improvement and develop students to compete in the 21st century.  The survey will be one of multiple measures used to help the DOE assess the six essential elements.
