The Long Beach Unified School District is seeking community input on two different fronts, as they’re conducting a school culture and climate survey among all students, staff, and parents, and also asking the community at large for input on its budget.

The school culture and climate survey is being offered via ParentVUE accounts and is being conducted by Panorama Education. The survey takes five to ten minutes to complete and includes questions about the atmosphere and safety levels on campus.

“The purpose of the survey is to get your opinion on the effectiveness of your child’s school,” the district said in a statement announcing the survey.

The district is looking for at least 20% of parents to participate at each school. Parents can log into their ParentVUE account to fill out the survey, which will be open until March 18.

Examples of last year’s school climate survey can be found here.

The district is also seeking community input “on how to best support the needs of current and future students” in the budget engagement process for the upcoming year. The LBUSD has an annual budget of approximately a billion dollars and is the city’s largest employer. Community members can provide feedback at this link.

LBUSD will drop mask mandate on March 12, in line with state
