Frequently Asked Questions


What should I do if I find that a parent at my school has not received a survey?

Parents are eligible to complete a survey if their child has been enrolled in the school since early November 2014. Students enrolled after that point will not receive a survey for their parents. Additionally, we try to provide a single survey to each household in your school by looking for guardian and residence matches between students, so “missing” surveys may actually represent cases where a single survey was provided to the guardian of a family’s oldest child in the school.


There are siblings in my school. How will the survey team account for this?

Your school’s survey population will be adjusted before response rates are finalized in April based on enrollment records in ATS. Students with matching address information in ATS will be counted as a single household and your response rate will be adjusted to reflect one survey for the household.


What if a parent loses the paper survey?

If parents lose their surveys or are having technical difficulties with the online survey, they should call the Survey Hotline at 1-800-690-8603. The Survey Hotline will be able to provide eligible parents with survey access information to take the survey online.


Is the online survey translated?

Yes. The online survey for parents and students is provided in English as well as nine languages offered by the DOE: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Urdu. The online survey is available at


Where can I get my school’s response rate?

Survey Coordinators will receive response rate updates regularly throughout the end of survey administration. Response rate updates will also be available online on the survey website, and will be posted in Principals’ Weekly.
