2024 Conditions for Learning Student Survey

Our district is preparing to administer an annual school climate and culture survey called Conditions for Learning to students in grades 3-12. This survey administration is required by the state’s plan to meet a federal law called the Every Student Succeeds Act. All Iowa public school districts will use the Conditions for Learning Survey to improve safety, student engagement, and the overall learning environment, so all Iowa students have the optimum conditions for learning. Ballard East and BHS will administer it during the week of April 15th, and BMS will administer it during the week of April 22nd.

All public schools in Iowa will use an online survey to assess the conditions for learning in their school for students in grades 3-12. Student responses will be confidential, and individual response data will not be available to anyone in the survey reporting platform. Each school will receive aggregated data annually at the building level to support the alignment of professional development with identified culture and climate needs.

We will ask your child to fill out a confidential survey. The survey will focus on issues ranging from student safety to positive student relationships to school rules and how they are enforced.

Thank you for partnering with Ballard schools to improve conditions for learning in our schools throughout the state. Included is an overview of this opportunity, as well as:
