The School Climate & Connectedness Survey is a voluntary statewide online survey developed by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) in partnership with the Alaska Association of School Boards (AASB) and Panorama Education.

The purpose of the SCCS is to measure how staff & students perceive their school climate, how connected students feel to adults and their peers, student social and emotional learning, and observed student risk behaviors at school or school events. Research has shown that when students feel safe, connected, and engaged in school they are more successful learner and exhibit fewer risk behaviors.
