Parent School Climate Survey

Sinnott Elementary School needs you to complete this online survey to help improve school culture and climate.  It is an opportunity for you to communicate your perceptions about fundamental learning supports and barriers at this school.

The purpose of this survey is to obtain parent perceptions of student behavior and attitudes, school programs and policies, and the overall school climate as they relate to student well being and learning.  Your participation is voluntary but very important!  The information you provide will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health rishs that stand as barriers to learning.

  • This survey is an anonymous survey.  It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data.  You do not have to respond to any questions that you feel could be used to identify you.  Simply skip and such questions.
  • All questions apply to this school only.
  • The results are for the use of your district. CDE/CHKS will preserve data confidentiality and refer and data questions to the district.

If you have more than one child at Sinnott, please complete one for each child.  Access the login page for the survey by clicking on the Parent School Climate Survey link below.  Use the school code: ET49PG (case sensitive) and click on Take Survey button.

Spring Testing

Sinnott will administer the SBAC to students in grades 3-6 from April 7-May 7, 2015. The SBAC is the computer-adaptive standardized test which was piloted last year. The test measures student achievement and is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The SBAC takes the place of the CST test (except for science).


Though this testing window is many months away,

Sinnott will begin having students practice with this new test starting in January 2015. However, students can actually take a practice test before that time. The ideal time for students to take this practice test is over a break, such as Winter Break or Mid-Winter Break (February 2015). As your student takes the practice test, they and you will see the types of questions that are required to be answered in April 2015.


If this sounds like something you wish your student to do, the website where you can access the test is Once on the website, click the Practice and Training Tests button and then click the student interface button. For now, students will simply leave everything as GUEST to sign in.  Once signed in, students will only need to enter their grade (3-6).


The purpose of taking a practice test is to get students comfortable with the student interface, not to stress them out or force them to take practice tests over and over. Students do not have to complete the entire practice test when at home and no grade or results are given.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Laurie Armino [email protected]
