We want to hear from you! Just two days left to take the District climate survey

The MVWSD Climate Survey is open now through Friday for all staff, parents and students in grades 5 and 7. Your responses provide information beyond test scores that helps us improve our schools. If you haven't taken the survey already, look for an email invitation in your inbox on Wednesday morning from "MVWSD." The subject line is: "We need to hear from you!" (Check your spam folder, too).

This survey is administered online through Panorama Education. Your answers to the survey are confidential and compiled by Panorama, a third party. Your honest feedback is very important. Your personal results will not be identifiable.

In addition to completing LCAP requirements, the data will help inform work on the District's strategic plan goals and provide longitudinal data for year-to year comparisons. The questions are drawn from an archive of research-based questions in broad theme areas of engagement, instruction, school safety and school environment. We will be asking students, parents and staff members about their impressions of our District sites.  This is a great opportunity for us to get feedback and continue to work together to improve our schools.


We look forward to seeing the results and working with the leadership of our bargaining units and staff to look for ways we can continue to improve. Thank you in advance for your input.
