The Essentials of School Culture and Climate Survey is a research-based instrument that is loosely based on the 5Essentials Survey, designed by the Consortium of School Research at the University of Chicago. Questions included in the survey are based on a large body of research about what is important for turning low-performing schools around. These include questions about Effective Leadership, Involved Families, Supportive Environment, Collaborative Teachers, and Ambitious Instruction. Previous research suggests that being strong on these measures of school climate makes a school 10 times more likely to demonstrate significant academic improvements.
