DCPS has a vision that every student feels loved, challenged, and prepared to positively influence society and thrive in life. The Panorama Survey is a critical way to measure progress toward that goal. Your voice matters! See the FAQs below for more on why we ask families, students and staff to take this survey each year and how schools use the results.

Student and Teacher Surveys: The 2020 Panorama Student Survey and Teacher/Staff Surveys will take place from March 2 - March 13, 2020. More information will be posted here closer to the survey window.

2019 Results Coming Soon: Results from the 2019 Panorama Family, Student, and Teacher/Staff Survey are now available to principals and other staff with access to the Panorama portal.

What is the Panorama Survey?

  • Since the 2017-18 school year, DCPS has distributed the Panorama survey annually to all students in grades 3-12, all families/guardians, and all teachers and staff. The survey asks questions about social emotional learning, school climate, school satisfaction, and engagement.
     
  • Answers are also used to calculate a score on the Loved, Challenged, and Prepared Index (LCPI), which tracks progress toward the district’s vision that every student feels loved, challenged, and prepared to positively influence society and thrive in life.

How are results from the survey used?

  • Lots of ways! The district and individual schools can use the survey to evaluate progress on the Loved, Challenged, and Prepared Index (LCPI) and set new goals.
     
  • Principals and school teams also use the results to decide on new interventions and programs to improve school climate and social emotional learning.

Where can I find survey results from previous years?

  • Reports for previous years are at the bottom of this page.
