The issues with Culture and Climate within schools and districts

Use Satchel Pulse to break communication barriers, receive relevant and timely feedback, and reduce the workload of data collection and interpretation.

Communication barriers

Districts large and small face many communication challenges when attempting to capture stakeholder feedback. These barriers can make it difficult to ensure that collected feedback represents stakeholder feedback as a whole.

Outdated results

Climate surveys often come at the end of a school year and data is not often available until the following school year. This can make the data irrelevant to schools especially if they experience turnover and perpetuates a reactive approach.

Laborious data collection

Managing survey data can often include labor-intensive steps and follow-up. Districts and schools end up expelling most of their energy on data collection processes in these scenarios which leaves little time left for acting upon results.

Addressing challenges with Culture and Climate within schools and districts

Satchel pulse provides a smart solution for stakeholder feedback through inclusive surveys, continuous feedback, instant results, and automated data collection procedures.

Inclusive Surveys

Three different surveys are used to gather feedback for staff, students, and parents. Each survey includes its own pillars to ensure questions are relevant to the individual. Audio reading and language translation support diverse populations.

Frequent check-ins

Schools and districts get continuous feedback through the school year through the surveys. Results are calculated instantly and data can be analyzed through the lens of various subgroups to explore whose feedback and perspective may be missing.

Automated reporting

School and district leaders can use tools to focus directly on taking action based on survey results. Surveys are automatically sent out, reporting is instantaneous, and an analysis follows that highlights areas to monitor, and areas to take immediate action.

We are utilizing the Satchel Pulse data to develop an entire Culture/Climate plan. It is such a great data source because we have trend data over the last few years of use. We would not be able to identify issues without this data. It has been a valuable tool and I would highly recommend it!

The survey took very little time and the interface was student friendly. The students especially liked using the sliding scale with the different faces instead of numbers or words, that made it easier for them.
