Culture and Climate Surveys

The Holyoke Public School district is surveying our families using the Panorama Culture and Climate Survey.  The survey information will inform our improvement efforts at the school and district level, as we work together to be families’ first choice for their children’s education. The 2019 survey window is February 25th – March 15th, 2019.  We ask that you please take 5-7 minutes to complete the family survey using this link:, entering the access code for your school listed below. The access codes are the same for ELA and Spanish.

The input and feedback on our schools and district overall are critical to ensuring that we adapt and refine our strategy and implementation.  Feedback from previously completed Panorama surveys has already been used to inform schools’ plans for SY18-19. As a district, we were particularly encouraged to see:

  • More students reporting that their teachers have high expectations of them and that they feel connected to adults at school
  • High number of students reporting that they know what to do to get a good grade and feeling safe in their classroom
  • High number of families reporting they feel welcome in their child’s school and receive a prompt response to calls and emails
  • More families reporting that their cultural background is reflected at school in a positive way

We still have a lot of room for improvement, particularly in the following areas:

  • Ensuring that the behavior of other students at school helps learning, rather than detracts from it
  • Ensuring that students who need additional support receive it
  • Ensuring students are interested and excited about their classes
