WCSD Survey

  • 2019-2020 WCSD Student Climate and Safety Survey

    All students must take the school climate survey.  In order to minimize out of class time, Amie Newberry has kindly created this easy handout that can be used with smart phones in class (instead of bringing them to the lab, waiting FOREVER for the computers to log on, and taking the 30 minute survey).  This should be much more efficient.




    1. SHOW THE VIDEO (2 min)—link—  https://youtu.be/mQGWlQj87DM
    2. Have students scan the QR code to take them directly to the link (smart phone cameras are a QR code reader—if they pretend like they are going to take a picture of the QR code, a banner pops up, follow the banner to the page).
    3. Access Code is STUDENT ID
    4. Student responses are NOT recorded unless they click “Submit” at the bottom of the survey.
    5. Students must complete the survey all in one sitting.


    Important Info:


    • If a student doesn’t have a smart phone, please send them to the library to use an iPad or borrow a friend’s phone.
    • Survey takes between 15-30 minutes
    • Students can choose not to participate if they do not want to take the survey.
    • Please communicate to students this survey is INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT.
    • Answering honestly will give Reno High better quality data. 
    • Student opinions are valued and confidential.


    I know how valuable your teaching time is, so I appreciate you finding a pocket of time over this 2-week timeframe to accomplish this little task.
