Satchel Pulse Culture and Climate benefits

Support culture and climate through the use of advanced and automated surveying methods that focus on capturing real-time feedback from stakeholders.

Culture & Climate product
Gathering feedback from your staff, students and parents can be a huge drain on resources. Satchel Pulse provides a school culture and climate assessment tool that automates the entire process leaving you to focus on the actions you want to take to improve school climate.
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.
Ensuring that the data you get is easy to understand is critical to create a healthy school climate. Satchel Pulse shows a longitudinal analysis of school climate surveys in clear, easy-to-understand, interactive dashboards that provide an at-a-glance view of the relevant data you need.
Measuring school climate is only possible if respondents truly understand the questions you ask. Satchel Pulse delivers school climate surveys in your users' first language ensuring they know what they’re being asked and that their responses are truly representative of how they feel.

Why should we measure, monitor, and improve school climate?

School climate and culture play an important role in the success and wellbeing of the school community.

Drive student engagement

Researchers specializing in education have concluded that "students achieve higher scores on standardized tests in schools with healthy learning environments". So the development of a positive school culture means educators drive better student engagement, and learning outcomes in the classroom are also improved.

Ensure student safety

When it comes to school safety, and interpersonal relationships, it is essential that schools harbor a culture where each member of school personnel, and each and every student, has a feeling of safety. Providing an environment where students feel physically and emotionally safe is key.

Support the community

Regular climate surveys support changes to school policies, which in turn leads to changes in school culture. Also, a school learning environment in which teachers are not only concerned with the teaching and learning but also with developing relationships to support each student is desirable.

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.
