Dear Parent or Guardian:
New York City Public Schools (NYCPS) believes that our schools become stronger when we listen to our students. This year, students will be invited to participate in the Panorama Education Student Perception Survey, a research-based, confidential student survey used across the country to provide teachers with students’ feedback about their classroom experiences.
Students in grades 6-12 will be invited to participate in the 2023-24 Student Perception Survey. The survey can be completed in 30 minutes or less. The survey administration window is from January 3 to January 19, 2024 and schools will determine when is best to administer.
Questions on the survey ask how your child is experiencing their classes, such as how supported your child feels by their teacher, and whether they find lessons engaging. If you would like to learn more, please visit StudentPerceptionSurvey.nyc where you can read about the 2023-24 Student Perception Survey or contact your school.
All student survey responses are anonymous, and they are kept completely confidential, which means no one in the school will know how your child responded. Students are not asked to provide their names or ID numbers on the survey. The reports that teachers receive will not show the individual responses from any student, so you and your child can be confident that their survey answers will remain private.
The survey is voluntary. Families can opt out of participating in the survey by contacting the Parent Coordinator. Students may opt out of participating in the survey at the time it is administered even if you do not contact your child’s school. Additionally, if students do not feel comfortable answering a particular question, they may skip it and any other question on the survey they do not wish to answer.
Please contact your child’s school if you would like more information or to see a copy of the survey.
