CSS Construct Results Across Surveys

Return to CSS Homepage

The Comprehensive School Surveys (CSS) are designed to be a reflection on school climate and provide a more informed, more representative picture of the perceptions of students (grades 4-12), certified staff, classified staff, and parents. The CSS is comprised of more than 30 constructs with these nine common constructs for students, parents, and teachers: Administration/Governance, Caring Environment, Curriculum, Overall Satisfaction, Personal Safety, School Belonging, School Resources, Site Safety, and Teaching.

COVID Impact on the survey:

The Comprehensive School Surveys aim each year to capture key elements of school culture and climate including stakeholder engagement, satisfaction, and sense of belonging. Due to the extraordinary circumstances in 2021, the CSS was modified in several ways: 1) reduction in questions to lower survey fatigue, 2) new questions specific to the NTI experience, 3) provided online only, 4) optional distribution by schools due to return-to building planning.

While analyzing these CSS results consider the following 2021 CSS response rates (RR) of stakeholders: 1) If the response rate is less than 10% data are not reported, 2)If the response rate is between 10% and 49% please use the data and information with caution, and 3) Data with less than 5 respondents are not reported.
