PLUS is the only youth leadership model in the country using Direction Survey to administer online student surveys throughout the school year.
Data Driven Decision Making Process
Combining data gathered from online surveys with student led focus group discussions (PLUS) drives the planning process and the calendar of activities to be implemented by student leadership throughout the school year.
Direction Survey allows schools and community groups to constantly assess the climate of their youth. This measurement instrument is proving to be an extremely effective tool in assessing youth trends. This is a collaborative tool for School Districts, County Office of Education Departments, grant writers and other agencies that offers view only modes for Administrators so the anonymous data can easily be shared. The Direction Survey and Resource Database equips sites with ongoing survey assessment to trend behavior experienced by students, staff, parents and community which essentially defines school climate. School Climate is defined as a pattern of experiences students, staff and parents encounter. Looking at data only once a year, will not define the pattern. Sites must have a tool to assess behavior on a monthly basis. The Direction Survey and Resource Database enables sites to trend behavior as often as they choose. When data is logged into the database, it directs the site to a set of actions, activities, and resources to address specific behavior.
Direction Survey gives schools unlimited access to develop custom student, staff and parent surveys.

Direction Survey enables school sites to trend data monthly to get an accurate measurement of school climate and student behavior. Sample trending reports include:
PLUS Program and LCAP
When developing Local Control Accountability Plans and implementing PBIS strategies, districts must integrate data into the overall program development of their plans. The platform directs the school site to a set of actions, activities, and resources to utilize as part of their Local Control Accountability Plans that will address that specific behavior. Direction Survey is used as part of the ongoing Local Control Accountability Plans throughout the year to guide local communities towards actions that are needed immediately.
