2021 JCPS Comprehensive School Survey 

The Jefferson County Public School District’s annual Comprehensive School Survey is now open for students, families and employees. The survey, which has been used by the district for more than 20 years, is a valuable resource for identifying specific needs and crafting strategies to ensure success for all JCPS students.  

The survey is voluntary for all employees, families, and students in grades four through 12. This year, it is shorter and focused on gaining insights from this past year. The results will help us plan for the New Way Forward when we return this Fall.

Your participation is confidential. No individual can or will be identified, and survey results will be reported as group data only. Parents, if you have more than one child attending a district school (or schools), please complete a survey for each. 

The survey will be open until Thursday, May 27, 2021.  More details about the district’s Comprehensive School Survey and survey results from 2012 through 2020 can be found here.
