CCSD asks parents for opinions and suggestions
Safety, academics and school climate are among the many topics that are the focus of the 2017 Clark County School District (CCSD) Parent Survey, available online from Oct. 30 – Dec. 22, 2017, at ccsd.net/survey. The 10-minute survey, available in English and Spanish, is confidential and part of the district’s efforts to engage the community on important issues facing students and their families.
“Engagement is one of the district’s Pledge of Achievement success indicators. The annual survey is an important opportunity for us to hear from and listen to what parents think about their child’s school and the district as a whole,” said Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky. “It is vital that we receive feedback from parents as CCSD employees work hard to improve all areas of education.”
Surveys have also been designed for students and staff to take at ccsd.net/survey, in order for CCSD to obtain a full representation of all groups that make up the school district.
Questions asked in the survey align with district goals, focus areas and strategic imperatives that will be used to help make improvements to schools and increase parent engagement. As part of the district’s efforts to maintain transparency with the community, survey results will be made available to the public in early 2018.
For parents and guardians who wish to participate, but do not have computer/internet access, the following locations have computers available for public use:
- All CCSD schools
- CCSD Administrative Center, 5100 W. Sahara Ave., Las Vegas
- CCSD Curriculum and Professional Development Building, 3950 S. Pecos-
McLeod, Las Vegas

- 2298 Vegas Valley Drive, Las Vegas, (Valley HS campus)

There are several questions on the survey that are school specific; therefore parents and guardians must enter their child’s student ID number and birth date or the name of the school when completing the survey at ccsd.net/survey. Entering student information ensures that each school is receiving their specific responses from parents to gauge their school climate. The identity of individual students, parents or staff who respond to the survey will not be disclosed to any school or district administrator. Survey results will only be shared in the aggregate.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete and is accessible on tablets and smart phones. Every parent is invited to take a survey for each child enrolled in a CCSD school.
Parents and guardians may request a paper copy of the survey from their child’s school. Any questions or concerns can be addressed by calling CCSD’s Assessment, Accountability, Research and School Improvement division at 702-799-1041, option 4.
