Dear Families,

Between January 25th and February 2nd, North Adams Public Schools will be surveying all students in grades 3-12. These confidential surveys have been designed by Panorama Education and vetted by North Adams Public Schools leadership. The surveys will focus on “School Climate” with an additional component for grades 6-12 that focuses on “Equity and Belonging.” More information about Panorama and the surveys can be found here. All Panorama surveys are nationally normed surveys that will allow us to have comparable data to other similar districts. The information provided by students in their responses will help the school district continue to make improvements to their educational experience.

We hope all students complete the survey, but they may opt out of the survey if they do not want to share their responses. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email

Thank you!
