Transparency In Education

Panorama Student Survey

The Panorama Social-Emotional Learning Competencies and Supports + Environment surveys are administered biannually to IPS and Innovation School students in grades 3-12 (Christel House Indianapolis schools also participate in these surveys, which is why they have the IPS logo on them). The surveys ask students to self-reflect on things like their ability to keep working toward a goal, how much they are able to change their own skills, and the social and learning climate of their school. The surveys contain questions on the topics of emotion regulation, social awareness, self-efficacy, school belonging, school engagement, school climate, teacher-student relationships, school rigorous expectations, cultural awareness & action, and diversity & inclusion. The purpose of these surveys is to support schools in the processes of informing the socio-emotional education of students and creating the best learning environments for students.

Public school districts and public charter schools are eligible for ESSER III funding.
