Together we can

SDoL Surveys

The School District of Lancaster makes a deep commitment to listen to community voices in the work of our schools. The district partners with Franklin & Marshall College’s Center for Opinion Research to conduct surveys with students and staff (annually) and parents (semi-annually). These surveys help district leaders gauge things like student perceptions of their schoolwork, parent confidence in the district’s education programs and employee satisfaction.

We request your thoughtful participation.

Student Survey

The School District of Lancaster is conducting a survey of students in grades three through 12 to learn about their experiences since we transitioned to online instruction. We ask that your student complete this survey online. Note: there will be a separate survey for parents mailed to you in the next few weeks.

The district has partnered with the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College to do this survey. Your child can complete the survey by going to the website below and entering the username and password provided on a postcard mailed to your home.

If your child has problems accessing the survey, please email for support. If you have other questions about the survey, email Ryan Stralo, School District of Lancaster Coordinator of Assessment, Evaluation & Research at Thank you!

Parent Survey

The School District of Lancaster partners with the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College to conduct a telephone survey with parents of SDoL students in grades K3 through 12. The purpose of our survey is to better understand parent perceptions of school safety, district communications, parent involvement and postsecondary preparation, among other topics. The survey was developed by SDoL staff in collaboration with F&M staff. The results will be used for the following grants and programs: Title I, GEAR UP, School Counseling, Food Services, IBMY, and the Tech Initiative.
