School Quality Survey

The Hawaii Department of Education (DOE) administers the School Quality Survey (SQS) to capture the voices of school personnel, and students (Grades 3-12) and parents/guardians (of students in Grades K-12) in public DOE schools and Charter Schools. Studentsí, parentsí, and teachersí responses are included in the School Reports; administrative and office staff and instructional support staff responses are included in the Statewide Summary and Complex Reports.

Likert-scaled 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 Charter School.
