The Comprehensive School Survey (CSS) began during the 1996-97 school year and has been conducted every year since. It is given to all employees, all parents, and every student in fourth grade and above. Each year, over 100,000 surveys are returned, and that data is then analyzed and used to direct dialogues and strategies for the future of JCPS. The CSS provides invaluable feedback to the board, principals, and teachers regarding the climate of their work/school environment.

Please note, to ensure anonymity, results with less than five responses are not reported.
