Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s):
It is the Hawaii State Department of Education’s (Department) goal to ensure equity, empowerment, and excellence in education for all students. Thus, we acknowledge our students’ voice as stakeholders in the Department’s efforts to enhance teacher practice and improve the overall school climate. Your child’s perspective is highly valued. We thank you for being our partners as we work together to educate our students this school year.
In order to learn more about student experiences, all students in grades 3-12 will be invited to participate in two different surveys. 1. Panorama Student Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Survey 2. Panorama Student Perception Survey
To request that your child be exempted from completing the surveys, please fill in the attached Student Survey Declination Form. Check the “My child WILL NOT participate in the Panorama Student SEL Survey” and/or the “My child WILL NOT participate in the Panorama Student Perception Survey” box, fill in the requested information, sign the form, and submit the form to your child’s school. Forms must be submitted to the school by the date listed on the attached Student Survey Declination Form.
