Frequently Asked Questions

Who takes the School Experience Survey?

The School Experience Survey is taken by parents, students, teachers and staff in LAUSD schools.
  • One parent survey is distributed to each household that includes a K-12 student. For households with more than one student enrolled, priority is given first to the oldest elementary student, followed by the oldest student in secondary schools.
  • Student surveys are distributed to each grade 3-12 student.
  • Staff surveys for teachers, principals, administrators and all other staff may be completed online only.

My students are finished with their surveys. Should they tear off the strip that shows their name?

Yes. Please direct your students to fold and tear the perforated strip where it says please tear here. This will ensure that a student's name is not associated with their responses.

We are a Common Core Technology School and we did not receive student surveys. What should we do?

Students in Common Core Technology Schools should complete their surveys online using their school-provided iPads or other technology in their elementary or period 3 classrooms.

CCTP schools will receive note cards with student 10-digit IDs by Friday, May 9, 2014. If you would like to complete the surveys prior to May 9, follow the instructions for students who do not have a 10-digit code described below.

I received a paper survey. May I complete the survey online instead?

Yes. Parents and students should have their 10-digit survey code ready before you click on the link for the appropriate survey. If you need verification that you completed the survey, you may print the last page that shows after you click submit.

I do not have a 10-digit ID code and I want to complete my survey online. What should I do?

Students: Should enter their school's 4 digit location code followed by their 6-digit birthdate.
Parents, if you would like to complete the survey online and do not have a ten digit ID, do the following:
  • Enter "0000" followed by your child's 6-digit birth date in place of your code. For example, if your child was born October 2, 2007, enter "0000100207" and click "Next".
  • On the next page, select your school from the drop-down list and click "Next" to begin the survey.

When can I expect to receive my survey shipments?

Schools will receive their parent and student survey shipments by April 10, 2014.

During which period are Middle and High School surveys distributed?

All secondary school surveys are distributed to PERIOD 3 classrooms.

When are School Experience Surveys Due?

School Experience Surveys should be completed by all respondents by May 20, 2014. Schools should schedule pick-up for May 23, 2014 or earlier.

I do not have enough surveys for students and/or parents at my school. What should I do?

  • Only grade 3 through 12 students take the student surveys.
  • Only one survey per household will be distributed to parents of K-12. Younger students with older siblings will not receive a parent survey.
  • At this time, no surveys are created for pre-K student or students in adult schools.
  • Some schools have brand new students for whom parents and student surveys were not completed. These students and parents typically do not have enough experience to respond about your school, and it is not recommended that they complete surveys.

I am at a school and I would like to return the completed surveys to be processed. What should I do?

DO NOT RETURN YOUR COMPLETED SURVEYS IN US MAIL OR LAUSD SCHOOL MAIL. Your original shipment of surveys included a manila/orange colored instruction packet. Once you find this package, do the following:
