As a major feature of the New Haven Public School's Nationally Recognized School Change Initiative,  Mayor John DeStefano, Jr. and Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Reginald Mayo today announced the results of New Haven's first annual School Learning Environment survey. This survey collected feedback from students in grades 5-12, teachers and parents about their individual schools.    The survey questions were designed by a committee of teachers, parents and administrators to give school leaders and members of school communities constructive information they can use to improve their schools.  Parents, teachers and students were asked similar questions about academic expectations, communication, engagement, safety and respect, and collaboration.  82% of teachers, 88% of students, and 23% of parents responded to the survey.  Although New Haven’s parent response rate compares favorably with similar efforts in other districts, an improved parent response will be a priority for future survey administrations.
