All of Somerset County Public Schools' staff, students, and parents are being asked to take the School Climate Survey. The survey is currently open and is a great tool for us to get input on different components of our schools. There is a different password depending on the school and the role of the person (student, parent, or staff). If you have not received your password, contact your school's principal.
