Survey Says...

Dear Canyon Families,

It is that time of year where I ask you to please take a few minutes to take the annual School Experience Survey (SES). The survey results give our school important insight into what staff, students and parents think about our school's learning environment and what we can do to make it even better.

Check your child’s backpack for the survey envelope on Monday. Only one parent survey per school is printed for each household. If multiple students attend or share a household, the parent survey is printed for and distributed to the oldest child.

All parent surveys may also be completed online at Click on “Parent Survey”. If you opt to take the survey online, you will need to input the 10-digit parent code found on the top right corner of your parent letter. Online surveys can be completed on any device that connects to the Internet (e.g., smartphone, tablet, or laptop).

The School Experience Surveys will make a difference in how our school is ranked compared to other California schools. Every parent should find this to be significant for Canyon and take the time to complete and return the survey. We trust that we can count on you to support this survey effort to ensure our school ranking remains among top schools in LAUSD and California. 

I thank you for taking the time to complete this important survey. Please have all surveys either completed online or turned in to school by Tuesday, February 7th. Please contact our office at 310.454.7510 if you have any questions.

With appreciation,



Who takes the School Experience Survey?

The School Experience Survey is taken by parents, students, teachers and staff in LAUSD schools. Starting January 2017, Early Education Centers will participate in administering parent and staff surveys. Visit to take the survey online.

  • One parent survey per school is distributed to each household that includes a TK-12 student. For households with more than one student enrolled in the same school, the oldest student in the school will receive the survey. Parents can complete the survey on paper or online.
  • Students in grades 3-12 complete the survey online (starting January 2017).
  • All school staff, including teachers, principals, administrators, and all other staff complete surveys online.

How do my students log in online to take their surveys?

Students will need 1) the name of their school’s Local District (e.g., South) and 2) their LAUSD ID (available to teachers for download from the MiSiS attendance report). Each student should first select their Local District from the dropdown menu and then input their LAUSD ID as their password.

NOTE: Students should only take the survey if they have enough experience with their school. Passwords are based on rosters pulled on December 1st, 2016. If a student cannot log in, this means that the student does not have access to the survey and will not be counted against the school’s response rate.
