The School Climate Thermometer
This survey instrument, designed for middle and high school students, was created in collaboration with Dr. Laura Roberts. It reliably measures three components of school climate: bullying behaviors, upstander efficacy and school connectedness. Results of the survey are used to “take the temperature” of your school climate and create an action plan for positive change. Clients can directly purchase the survey or contract with PeacePraxis to administer it and provide a comprehensive analysis and report.
