School Quality Survey

Important Note.  The recently posted 2014 SQS reports are temporarily unavailable at this time.  The summary statistics for some schools are being corrected for the Parent Survey, because of a reversal in the coding of the response scale order impacting the paper and pencil survey forms only.  Please do not use the results from the 2014 SQS Parent Survey until corrected SQS reports are posted shortly.  We are sorry for any inconvenience due to the coding change miscalculation.

The School Quality Survey (SQS) is a DOE-administered survey that asks teachers, students, parents, administrative office staff, and instructional support staff for their opinions of school quality. Schools may find survey results useful when developing self-reports for accreditation and standards implementation.

The SQS is administered to all DOE regular public schools and to Public Charter Schools that request to participate.

Current report: School Year 2013-2014
Last update: September 2014

The 2013 and 2014 SQS reports should not be compared to the reports of previous years due to changes in the survey scale categories. Elementary school reports were not affected.
