Social-Emotional Learning and Equity and Inclusion Surveys
Bloomfield Hills Schools is committed to the social-emotional learning and well-being of all of our students. Our community of caring educators continues to analyze and incorporate best practices that embed values of inclusion, belonging, growth mindset, relationship-building, and wellness into the culture and climate of our schools.
Bloomfield Hills Schools is gathering key data to better understand the holistic needs of our students and staff in order to support their ability to work, thrive and achieve. Evidence shows that academic achievement, social-emotional learning, and behavior are linked. Understanding the whole child allows us to fully support their needs.
Between March 6 and March 24, students in grades 6 through 12 will be invited to respond to two surveys that ask about their experiences in school regarding both Social-Emotional learning and one focused on Equity and Inclusion.
During this same time, students in grades 3-5 will be invited to respond to the Social-Emotional learning survey. The questions are available on the district website. Data from these surveys helps our teachers and leadership teams continue to identify needs and provide additional support to create the most supportive teaching and learning environments for all of our students.
Students will have time to complete this voluntary, confidential survey during the school day. Although not required, it is helpful to capture the voices of all our students and staff, allowing for careful examination of area needing closer focus. This data is one component of our district-wide strategic plan, which allows BHS to be more responsive to areas of need and work to improve student outcomes. If you wish to exclude your student from the survey experience please reach out to your child’s Principal.
We truly appreciate your support in creating learning environments where every student feels safe, valued, respected, and empowered to achieve.
