Register Now for SCCS!

We invite your district to participate in the 2021 School Climate & Connectedness Survey (SCCS). Each year, the majority of Alaska school districts collect and use school climate data to improve and strengthen school environments, relationships, and connections between students, staff, & families.

Schools are looking quite different this year. But no matter what shape learning is happening in your district—online, in-person, or blended—it is essential for students, staff, and families to feel safe and connected.

For the 2021 school year, additional questions have been added to better understand the needs of students, staff, and families during COVID-19.
