School climate survey

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our school values your input. We are inviting parents and guardians to participate in a survey to support student achievement and well-being.

The surveys provide the Board and our school with valuable information about how you feel about the school environment and your child’s education. Results from the survey will be used to identify areas to be addressed, monitor progress and plan strategies to support students.

The questionnaire will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and is available online and in paper format. Please complete the survey between May 20 and June 2 using one of the following methods:

 

 

  • Paper copies are available in English, Chinese, Farsi, Gujarati, Hebrew, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Tamil, Urdu and Vietnamese. Please contact the school to request paper questionnaires. If you choose to complete the survey on paper, please return it to the school in the envelope provided.

 

The information you provide will be anonymous and individual responses will be kept strictly confidential. Individuals will not be identified in any reports resulting from this survey.

We appreciate your participation in this voluntary survey. If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Your thoughts and insights will help further our vision as we work together to promote student achievement and well-being.

Mr. Collins and Ms Bongard
