Since 2004, AISD has conducted an annual survey to monitor campus staff’s perceptions of their school environment.The survey measures elements of teaching and learning conditions most critical to school success.
The purpose of this survey is to monitor high school students’ perceptions of their high school experience. Results are used to improve the campus environment and program supports for students.
Most teachers attending the August 2011 new teacher training responded positively to survey questions about their district and campus orientation activities. Teachers also suggested topics for future training sessions.
Thirty-four teacher trainers provided guidance to newly hired AISD teachers in August 2011. When surveyed, most trainers responded that the information and support they received were of high quality and that they felt prepared.
The student climate survey provides campuses with the opportunity to monitor students’ opinions regarding topics such as behavioral environment, adult fairness & respect, student academic self-confidence, teacher expectations, and student engagement.
