Survey coming soon...

Shoreline Public Schools is committed to continuous improvement throughout all of our schools and district. To support that work, it is important for us to know how our parents/guardians, staff and students view the job we are doing in providing a high-quality education for all students.


In October, parents/guardians, staff and students (grades 4-12) will be asked to participate in an important survey to help us quantify strengths and opportunities for improvement. We are partnering with the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) to conduct their Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES) that measures perceptual data based on the research-based Nine Characteristics of High Performing Schools:

  • Clear and shared focus
  • High standards and expectations for all students
  • Effective school leadership
  • High levels of collaboration and communication
  • Curriculum, instruction and assessments aligned with state standards
  • Frequent monitoring of learning and teaching
  • Focused professional development
  • Supportive learning environment
  • High levels of family and community involvement


The surveys are 100 percent anonymous and confidential. The data gathered will be used to support the development and implementation of school improvement plans and school district priorities for continuous improvement.


Surveys will be shared and collected from October 8-26. Parent/guardian surveys will be available in online or paper form. The online version will be available in English and Spanish. Paper surveys will be available in English, Spanish, Amharic, Chinese, Korean, Tagalog, Tigrinya and Vietnamese. Staff and student surveys will be completed online.
