Inclusivity Index
During advisory today, students will take this annual survey to gauge student experiences and perceptions at Burroughs: What does it feel like to go to school here? The survey is anonymous and consists of a series of three statements; for each, they are asked to pick the statement which most applies to them and which least applies to them. The results of this and previous surveys help guide student support and programming, teacher training, etc. Mr. Abbott asked everyone to answer candidly.
