2016-17 School Climate Survey Information

Valhallla Elementary  is looking for parents and community members to share their perceptions about the school.  Your participation is voluntary but very important.  The information will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning, and improve student achievement.  Results will also help inform Mt. Diablo Unified’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP.)    This is an anonymous survey designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  The questions apply to this school only.  The results will be used for school site and Mt. Diablo Unified program planning.  The window will be open from February 6, 2017- March 30, 2017.
