Our school is taking part in the Tennessee School Climate Survey. This survey is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education. This survey will tell us how students feel about our school. Taking part in the survey is very important because your answers will help us learn what makes school a good place to be, and how we can make it better. Each student will receive a permission form to take home. Please look for these forms to come home.  If you do not wish for your child to take the survey, please indicate your decision on the permission form and return the form to school.  Thank you for helping us make Rush Strong a great place to learn.  If you would like to view the survey your student will be taking, you may preview it here.  The permission form that is being sent home is as follows:







Dear Parent/Guardian,

Jefferson County Board of Education and Rush Strong School is conducting a survey about school climate and learning in school. The survey will help us create safe and supportive school environments that promote academic success. In prior years, schools have used this information to drive positive changes for student and staff culture. We are asking permission for your child to complete the survey. The survey is voluntary and anonymous. It includes questions about student relationships with teachers, school principals, and other students; school safety, bullying, and substance use; and school rules and the school environment.

This survey is sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Education. You can view the survey at and click on the student survey link or go to The survey will be administered to students online between November 15-21. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. Students who take the survey may skip any question they do not want to answer, or may stop taking the survey at any time. Your child’s teacher will be there to help answer questions. This survey is designed to protect your child’s privacy. Students do not put their names on the survey. As a reminder if you have not taken the parent survey you can also find that link on the school’s website or go to
