CA School Climate, Health, & Learning Surveys - CalEdFacts

This content is part of California Department of Education's information and media guide about education in the State of California. For similar information on other topics, visit the full CalEdFacts.

The California School Climate, Health, and Learning Survey (Cal-SCHLS) System is comprised of three interrelated surveys developed for and supported by the California Department of Education:

  • The California Healthy Kids Survey for students
  • The California School Staff Survey
  • The California School Parent Survey

These surveys provide schools and districts with critical information about the learning and teaching environment, the health and well-being of students, and supports for parents, school staff, and students that foster learning and school success. When used together, data from these three surveys helps assess the needs, concerns, and successes of the whole school community—teachers, students, and parents—and allows schools and districts to compare perceptions about the status of these areas across stakeholder groups.

For more information on the Cal-SCHLS, please contact Hilva Chan, Education Programs Consultant, Coordinated School Health and Safety Office, by e-mail at
