This report synthesizes feedback from 56428 respondents across multiple stakeholder groups and/or school levels at Sonoma County Schools. The overall response rate was 58%.
This report does not include data on questions that are not asked of all three stakeholder groups (students, family, and staff members). For those questions, if applicable, please refer to your Student Survey Report(s), Family Survey Report(s), and/or Staff Survey Report(s).
Snapshot of Feedback: Percent Positives
The table below shows the proportion of positive ratings for each survey theme from each participating stakeholder group at Sonoma County Schools.*
Colors are used to show the theme's percentile rank.** See the key below.
In the table below, Percent Change refers to the percentage point difference between the current survey round's percent positives and the most recent previous survey round's percent positives. For example, a 79% followed by a +5 Percent Change, indicates that the previous survey round’s percent positive was 74%.
*Percent positives for individual questions indicate the percentage of responses that are a 4 or a 5, or in the Elementary Student survey the percentage of responses that are a 3. Percent positives for a theme indicate the percentage of responses with a mean rating across all questions in the theme greater than 3.5 out of 5, or in the Elementary Student survey greater than a 2.5 out of 3.
**Percentile rank shows how your average rating compares to the other schools of the same level (elementary, middle, or high schools) that have administered the same survey and make up YouthTruth's comparative dataset. For example, if your percentile rank is 80th, your survey result is higher than 80% of the other schools in the comparative dataset. Because this is in the top quartile it will be highlighted in green.
Respondents chose one from five available answer choices for each question: 1: Strongly disagree, 2: Disagree, 3: Neither agree nor disagree, 4: Agree, 5: Strongly agree. For age appropriateness, Elementary Student questions are asked on a 1-3 scale instead: 1: No, hardly ever, 2: Sometimes, 3: Yes, very often. Middle and High School Student questions in the Relationships theme use a different scale than other questions in those surveys. These anchors refer to a number of teachers rather than to strength of agreement. They are: 1: None, 2: Very little, 3: Some, 4: A moderate amount, 5: All.
