This research brief explores the use of multiple items from the Surveys of School Environment (SSE) to provide a more comprehensive measure of the strategic plan milestone that all students will be educated in learning environments that are safe, drug-free, and conducive to learning. Currently, this milestone is monitored using one item from each of the staff, parent, and student SSE administered in elementary, middle, and high school. Factor analyses of these multiple items revealed a single robust construct, which is a more reliable measure than a single item measure for obtaining staff, parent, and student perceptions of school learning environments.
