Grades 5-12 To Take PPS Surveys In March

Mar. 4, 2022 -- The CH-UH School District is in our second year of using the Postsecondary Planning System (PPS). The PPS helps us identify students’ needs across academic, mental health, physical health, and social-emotional domains and link them to programs and services that will help meet these needs. This system is an important part of our strategic plan as it allows us to support all of our students towards college and career success.

To determine where a child may need extra support, each K-12 student’s school performance data is combined with information gathered through voluntary surveys completed by parents/guardians, staff members, and the students (grades 5-12 only) themselves. Thank you to those families who have taken the ‘21-‘22 surveys on behalf of your children. If you have not yet had the chance, please click the link here to complete the survey.

Students in grades 5-12 will take their surveys in school during the weeks of March 7 and March 14. Teams of teachers, social work and counseling staff, and/or administrators will conduct the surveys during school time. Students will be able to take the surveys on their personal devices or their District Chromebooks. This will be a quiet time in order to ensure everyone’s privacy. The survey is entirely voluntary, and students can decide not to take it at any point, even if they have already started it.

Staff will take surveys on behalf of students on March 25 during their Professional Development Day. Each building will assign students to employees based on their relationship with the student (e.g. their teachers, coaches, counselor, school principal, etc.).

Answers to any of the three surveys cannot be viewed by anyone. They are combined with data from Infinite Campus to create individualized reports that school counselors and social workers use to create support plans.

For more information about the PPS and the surveys, please review this FAQ list. Contact Nancy Peppler, Supervisor of Community & School Partnerships, at [email protected] with further questions.

All K-12 CH-UH students are automatically eligible to participate in the PPS system. However, you may choose to opt out of the program. Please review the opt-out document carefully here.
