Connecting Schools + Communities Survey

An important part of our research project is our nationwide Connecting Schools + Communities Survey (CS+CS). First of its kind in Australia, the CS+CS is opened to schools as we receive approval from jurisdictional authorities (see below). The survey will close at the start of Term 3 2022 (i.e. at the end of school holidays).

We want to understand how and why schools share their facilities with their community – or why they don't. We aim to build the evidence to improve policy, design and guidelines for new schools and upgrades to facilitate better learning and community sharing.

Who can participate in the survey?

The CS+CS is designed for Australian school principals, school facility managers and school leaders in wellbeing and community development.  If your school type and jurisdiction is listed as 'APPROVED' below, you can start the survey now. If not shown, approval may be pending. This list is regularly updated.
