PBIS School Climate Survey
The PBIS School Climate Survey will be administered to students in grades 3-12 during the first and last 45 days of school.
What is the School Climate Survey?
The School Climate Survey is a set of multi-dimensional surveys to measure student perceptions of school climate. The surveys are brief, reliable, and valid for assessing perceived school climate among students in grades 3-12. Each survey includes a set of demographic questions about the participant and a number of questions related to school climate with Likert-type response options. Surveys take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Surveys include:
The survey is anonymous, but parents/guardians are given the option to opt out if desired. The data collected from the survey will be used to identify student perceptions of school climate issues within our school. School staff use the results to inform our efforts at improving our school climate. Responses are housed securely and in an anonymous format with the University of Oregon Technical Assistance Center projects for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46). Our desire is to involve parents in their children's education. If you do not wish for your child to participate in this important activity, please sign and return the opt-out form to the school (see link for forms).
The Colton Joint Unified School District is establishing an Adult Education Program in an effort to provide life-long educational opportunities and support services to all adults. Please help us in identifying which services may be of interest to you.

CJUSD's Focus on Literacy
CJUSD leadership answered some critical questions this year in an effort to define and bring purpose to CJUSD's day-to-day operations. What do we do? How will we succeed? What is important? See our six critical questions for the answers.
The answer to the question "What is important?" points to how critical literacy is to success and gives us our theme of "Today's Readers - Tomorrow's Leaders." For more tools and information about this critical charge, also see San Bernardino County's web site focusing on its Vision2Readcampaign website.
