School Climate and Social Emotional Learning Surveys

Brea Olinda Unified School District (BOUSD) remains committed to providing all students with a tailored learning experience that best suits individual needs. To get a snapshot of student experience in BOUSD, your child is being asked to share their insights via the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS), sponsored by the California Department of Education (CDE) and the Panorama SEL survey.  The information that our students and families share will play a critical role in identifying student needs, BOUSD LCAP development, and future planning. For the 2023-2024 school year students in grades 5,7,9,11 and all Brea Canyon High School students will participate in the CHKS survey. Students in grades 3-12 will participate in the Panorama SEL survey. 
Key Points: 
Survey Content
  • The surveys gather information on social emotional learning competencies, developmental supports provided to youth, school connectedness and barriers to learning; as well as,  behaviors such as physical activity and nutritional habits, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use and school safety.
  • The CHKS and Panorama Surveys are linked below for review. 
Survey participation is voluntary and requires parent active consent
  • Students who, with parent consent, agree to participate, do not have to answer any questions they do not want to answer, and may stop taking the survey at any time.
  • Parents were presented with a permission form to opt-in or opt-out to one or both surveys during program verification on Aeries at the beginning of the year or when the student was enrolled into BOUSD.
  • To confirm or change your consent status, please download the BOUSD School Climate and SEL Survey Consent Form link and return to your child's school by March 25, 2024.
