Abstract

This report details the major results from a student survey administered to all 5th through 12th grade students in the Iowa City Community School District in February and March 2017. The survey and report are the product of a university- community partnership between researchers at the Public Policy Center at the University of Iowa and the Director of Equity and Staffing at the Iowa City Community School District. 

The primary goal of developing the student experiences of school climate survey was to gain detailed information regarding students’ own perceptions and experiences of the District’s schools. 

The findings from the student experiences of school climate survey demonstrate areas of significant strength across the District schools, and areas for improvement to align with the District’s pursuit of creating an inclusive and equitable environment for all students.
