School Quality Survey for Parents

The Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) administers the SQS to capture the voices of school personnel, students (Grades 3-12), and parents/guardians (of students in Grades K-12) in public DOE schools and charter schools. Students’, parents’, and teachers’ responses are included in school reports. Administrative and Office Staff (AOS) and Instructional Support Staff (ISS) responses are included in the Statewide Summary, Complex Area, and Complex reports. AOS and ISS response rates are not included this year due to incomplete distribution count reports. Survey items are constructed to fit within four dimensions: Safety (Students respond only to Safety questions.), Well-Being, Satisfaction, and Involvement/Engagement. Results are useful for school planning, improvement, celebrations, and other purposes. Open-ended comments, anonymously provided by parents and school personnel, are aggregated at the school level and are submitted to the respective Complex Area Superintendent and each school and charter school principal.
