We want to hear about your experience with your student's education. We invite you to participate in completing the Utah School Climate Survey. This survey includes questions about your student's learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment. 
Beginning today, we invite all parents, guardians and caretakers to complete this survey for Payson Junior High School. The survey is completely anonymous; it contains 33 questions. You can take the survey online by using the following unique school link. Please submit your responses by May 1, 2023. 

All your responses are completely anonymous. We have no way to connect you to your answers, and results will only be reported as group responses. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to know about your personal experiences. Responses are housed securely in an anonymous format with The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46). As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent, caregiver or guardian at your student's school. Please answer all of the questions. When you have completed the survey, click on the "Next" button at the bottom of the page. 
We hope you will take the time to provide us with this valuable information. Each school's total survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance our school climate. Thank you in advance for your time and participation.

Our students will be taking the secondary student school climate survey on May 1st in their advisory class. The school climate survey is an anonymous survey used to identify school climate issues within our school. The survey for secondary school students includes 44 questions.  The data collected from the survey will be used to identify student perceptions of school climate issues within our school. School staff use the results to inform our efforts at improving our school climate.
If you do not wish for your child to participate in this survey, please contact an administrator by Friday, April 28th, 2023. If you would like to examine the student survey, please click here.
