Prior to the school FAQ being shared, the PTA posted one our website here.   


SCES Antiracism Survey

The Antiracism Committee's data group put together a comprehensive, statistically rigorous survey that will inform the priorities of school administration, faculty/staff, and community members as we work to progress along an antiracist continuum.  

Please encourage your student(s) to respond if they haven't had a chance to do so yet. The survey is intended for grades 3-5.
