The School Experience Survey is an annual survey administered to all LAUSD schools. Survey results give each school important insight into what staff, students and parents think about their school's learning environment.

School Experience Survey to be Administered this Fall
In response to requests from numerous schools to have the School Experience Survey administration window more closely align with parent-teacher conferences, the School Experience Survey will no longer be administered in January/February. The new window for the administration of the School Experience Survey is October 30th to November 17th, 2017. School Experience Survey materials will be delivered to schools the week of October 23rd, 2017.
Other changes this year: To reduce the amount of time required to complete School Experience Surveys and to reduce respondent fatigue, the parent and student surveys have fewer items than in past years. Also, students in grade 3 will no longer participate in the School Experience Survey.
