Priority # 2 Build a positive school culture that supports student wellbeing.
- Student Social Emotional Well-Being Survey
- Student Culture/Climate Survey
- Survey Opt-Out
- Panorama FAQs
A priority for Tangipahoa Parish Schools is to build a positive culture that supports student wellbeing. We are inviting our students to participate in an online survey which will help guide our decision making process as we plan to address the needs of our children. The survey will be taken at school under the guidance of teachers and supporting school staff.
The survey questions are available to view below.
Tangipahoa Parish School System has partnered with Panorama for our faculty and students to complete a survey in efforts to understand their experiences and perceptions. A link to the survey will be available on our district website upon the opening of our window.
This survey will be used to improve the culture and climate in our schools. Your participation is completely confidential, which means that no one at your school will ever see your individual responses. The results of this survey will help administrators better understand your perceptions of your school. Survey data will be used by your administrators to identify strengths and areas for growth. You may use a computer, tablet, or smartphone to access the survey. You can find a complete list of the survey questions and topics in our Family Toolkit under Social and Emotional Learning & Well Being.
Please notify your child's principal directly if you wish to opt out of the survey. The survey opt out form is on the website. Thank you for your support in this matter.
