Parent School Climate Surveys

The Department of Education invites you to play an important role in your child’s education. By completing the School Climate Survey, you are giving your school, your school district, and the provincial government information on your thoughts and feelings regarding your child’s school and your child’s school life. This information will help to gauge the quality of education you believe your child is receiving and where
improvements, if any, need to be made.

Every year, the School Climate Survey is provided online to all parents of students in grade 2, grade 5, and grade 7 to Level III. Parents/guardians should complete this survey for every child they have in grade 2, grade 5, and grade 7 to Level III since each child has different educational experiences and what is true for one child may not be true for the other(s), especially if they are in different grades or schools.

The parent/guardian survey, on average, should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Responses are confidential and your name will not be linked to your results. All reporting will be done on a school, district, or province level. Individual responses will not be presented. Results will not be released in cases where school demographics may lead to the ability to identify respondents (less than 6 respondents).

The School Climate Survey is an opportunity to provide your voice to the future of education in your child’s school, community, and province. You can access the survey online by going to: http://fluidsurveys.com/s/PSchoolClimateSurvey2014-15/ .

Please complete the survey by Friday, March 27th, 2015.
