PPS Student Well Being and SEL Survey
Pittsburgh Public Schools will be administering the Panorama Student Well-Being and SEL survey to all students in grades 3-12 at the beginning of the second quarter (November 16 - 25).
This universal screening is based in recommendations from the American School Counselor Association and the National Association of School Psychologists, as well the PPS All-In subcommittee. The survey will be administered online through your child’s school, and will ask students questions related to their social-emotional skills in areas relevant to remote learning, including self-management, self-efficacy, learning strategies and emotion regulation.
We will use the information we receive to guide conversations and plan support for individual students, and support the work we do at the school and District level. We plan to administer the survey again in the spring, to continuously monitor the well-being of our students. Please encourage your child to respond with complete honesty. The survey is voluntary and students should feel free to skip any question or they can choose not to complete the survey. If you do not want your child to complete the survey, please return the opt out form to your child’s school by Monday, November 16, 2020 or notify your child’s teacher by phone or e-mail.
