Smith, Ken. (2020). Perceptions of school climate : Views of teachers, students, and parents. Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice. 26, pp. 5-20.
It has been widely documented that positive school climate significantly contributes to academic success and student well-being. This study explored teachers, students, and parents' perceptions of school climate as measured by the Inviting School Survey- R (ISS-R). The ISS-R was administered to over 10,000 school community members from over 60 schools across the United States. The ISS-R was used to identify perceptions of school climate between factors such as participants, gender, type of school, size of school, and student age. Results showed there were statistically significant association with self-reported perceptions of school climate and these five factors on the six ISS-R scales. The implications of the results are discussed, and it is concluded that the study's findings will facilitate the development of more inviting schools.
