Equal Opportunity Schools Fall High School Student and Staff Surveys

Equal Opportunity Schools Fall High School Student and Staff Surveys

The Equal Opportunity Schools (EOS) Fall Student and Staff surveys will be administered to SPS high school students and staff by June 9 and are designed to examine school culture for equity in access to advanced coursework.

This survey will provide trends on information, expectations, and belonging in Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and/or Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) programs. They will also provide valuable insight about student strengths and challenges in accessing rigorous coursework.

Our partners at EOS will use the data to surface student potential, interests, and perspectives on school equity. Staff surveys will also provide insights on staff perspectives related to equitable access to AP/IB/AICE, as well as their interest in teaching rigorous coursework and supporting outreach.

EOS surveys are online and will be completed on computers, tablets, or smartphones during the school day. Both surveys should take about 40-50 minutes to complete and the goal is to have all students in grades 9-12 and high school staff complete the survey. Students will have the option to opt out of surveys prior to the survey being given.

To best understand how students feel about current AP/IB/AICE programs, it?s important to hear from all 9-12 grade students. Student participation in these surveys will identify access barriers and increases the likelihood of enhancing and expanding AP/IB/AICE programs in your student?s school.

Fall student surveys will be available in Spanish, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese (Simplified), French, Korean, Russian, Urdu, Haitian Creole, French Canadian, Traditional Chinese ? Taiwan, and Traditional Chinese ? Hong Kong.

SPS, guided by our strategic plan Seattle Excellence, is committed to disrupting legacies of racism in our system and becoming an anti-racist organization. Part of this important work is making our high school courses, including advanced coursework like AP/IB/AICE programs, equitable and accessible to all students, especially our students of color furthest from educational justice. Thank you to our partners at EOS for helping us work toward that commitment through these surveys.
