Purpose of Skyview high school resiliency poll

  • The Skyview High School Resiliency Poll is organized by the Impact Team, and is one critical piece in identifying lagging skills and unsolved problems in students. The purpose of the poll is twofold; to empower families to address their child’s social and emotional skills and for Skyview to gather immediate data to develop meaningful interventions.


  • The Poll allows parents and students secure access to student results on resiliency indicators and risk factors. If a student lacks a skill in a certain area, parents will be able to connect with resources to assist their child (online, through the school and in the community).


  • Data from the poll will provide critical information for the Impact Team to develop school and community interventions. These interventions and systems of support will assist students in embracing a growth mindset and enhancing their social/emotional learning, which can lead to academic achievement and college/career readiness. *On average, global research has shown that as students grow in Resiliency Poll categories (optimal, satisfactory, moderate concern, at-risk), their GPA improves by 12% and standardized test scores improve by 15%.
