The Delaware School Climate Survey (DSCS) was developed by staff from the DE-PBS Project under the leadership of the project’s faculty partner from the School of Education. The DSCS includes Student, Teacher/Staff, and Home formats which allows for comparisons of results across informants. Each survey consists of subscales measuring important dimensions of schools climate. Research strongly supports the validity and reliability of the surveys and each of the subscales included on the survey is grounded in research and theory as to its importance in academic achievement and social and emotional development. The survey is offered to schools statewide, both to those implementing DE-PBS and those who are not. 165 Delaware schools statewide participated in the Delaware School Climate Survey in 2013, representing 70% of the state and 87% of PBS Schools.
