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 University of Delaware School of Education. The DSCS includes Student, Teacher/Staff, and Home formats which allows for comparisons of results across populations within a school. Each survey consists of subscales measuring important dimensions of schools climate. Research strongly supports the validity and reliability of the surveys. Each of the subscales is based on research and theory around the importance of school climate 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. 153 Delaware schools statewide participated in the Delaware School Climate Survey in 2015, representing 69% of the state and 69% of PBS Schools.
