CA School System Survey

Dear CHS families,


San Diego Unified is committed to nurturing and enhancing safe and healthy educational environments for students, families, and staff. In order to achieve this important goal, SDUSD will be conducting the California School System (CAL-SCHLS) survey. Through CAL-SCHLS, our District will collect data from students, staff, and families in order to meet California Educational State mandates. As part of SDUSD Local Control Accountability Plan and mandates as described in the California School Dashboard, our District is now required to measure Student Engagement, Parent Engagement, & Overall School Climate. The California School Survey System (CAL-SCHLS) includes 3 surveys: California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), California School Staff Survey (CSSS) and California Parent Survey (CPSS). All surveys are anonymous.


This year, the following are targeted participation goals for 2019-2020:


California Healthy Kids Survey: 80-85%

California Staff Survey: 60%

California Parent Survey: 40%


The CAL-SCHLS survey system is the most commonly used and reliable school survey, covering topics related to alcohol, tobacco, drugs, bullying, and other health issues such as school climate and student resiliency. These surveys will support and guide efforts for Multi-Tier Systems of Supports, Integrated youth Services and our baseline data for High Reliability Schools (Level 1). Enhancing Positive School Climate and creating systems of prevention will continue to guide our District’s CAL-SCHLS data collection, data dissemination and integration.
