D90 Releases Third Inclusiveness Perception Survey Results

D90 Releases Third Inclusiveness Perception Survey Results

District 90 has released the results of its 2019 Inclusiveness Perception Survey. This is the third time the survey has been conducted, with the first survey occurring in 2015. Commissioned by the District’s Inclusiveness Advisory Board (IAB), the survey is intended to help the District ascertain how its policies, practices, and procedures affect individuals’ experiences and the current school climate.


The confidential and anonymous survey was administered to students in grades 3-8, parents, and D90 faculty members. The results indicated that a majority of students, parents, and teachers generally feel welcomed and accepted in District 90 schools and school-related events. However, the results also spotlighted several areas that would benefit from greater attention. Several highlights from the survey results indicate:

  • A majority of students (95%) reported that they had a close friend at school.
  • Nearly two-thirds (66%) indicated that there was a school-based adult they felt comfortable talking to with a problem.
  • Most students feel welcomed and supported in their classes (82%). However, too many students (23%) still report feeling distanced.
  • On average, a majority of parents (81%) reported that they feel welcomed and comfortable in District settings, such as the administrative office or PTO meetings.
  • A majority of families (83%) also felt that their students were accepted for who they were.
  • Nearly 8% of families indicated that children experienced discriminatory practices or behaviors while in the District.
  • Teachers and staff members also indicated that District 90 “holds inclusiveness in high regard,” with nearly 70% agreeing with that statement.
  • On average, most teachers and staff members (78%) feel comfortable in all District settings, from Parent/Teacher Conferences to professional development meetings.
  • Nearly two-thirds (65%) of teachers and staff members indicated satisfaction with the inclusive culture at District 90, while 10% were dissatisfied with the inclusive culture.
