March 27, 2014 Developing a LCAP can be a daunting task. How do you measure school climate? What defines student and parent engagement? Professor Priscilla (Penny) Wohlstetter and her team have been working with charter schools (first at USC and now at Teachers College, Columbia) to help answer those questions.

The TC Stakeholder Satisfaction Surveys for parents, staff and students provides feedback to schools about school climate and stakeholder engagement. LCAPs must cover a three-year period and with the TC surveys, you will able to track your performance over time. The TC surveys will also allow charter schools to benchmark their performance against other schools of interest. The TC team offers a range of services, from survey design and data collection to data analysis and in-depth reporting.

Distinctive Survey Features:

  • Available in English and Spanish
  • Schools can customize the surveys and focus on your own specific needs
  • Prices are low, starting at $600, and vary according to school size and the size of CMOs
