Parent Climate Survey
Published on May 24, 2019 14:22

Every two years school boards are required, by the Ministry of Education, to conduct a climate survey with all students, staff and parents. The 2018-2019 academic year is a survey year for the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board (SMCDSB). Our grade 4-8 elementary students and secondary students have completed the student surveys over the last few months and the results are presently being compiled. It is now time to offer parents to provide input on school climate.

The climate survey is a tool that can help school and board teams identify strengths that can be further built upon, as well as help identify opportunities that we can work on together. Surveying students, staff, and parents at regular intervals helps in the decision-making process regarding programs and services that support a positive climate and for determining the effectiveness of such programs over time. We are working together to create learning environments where everyone feels safe, included and valued as members of our education community. The climate survey is a strength-based, holistic tool focused on factors such as engagement, relationships, spirituality, health, safety, inclusion, etc., that impact a positive climate where all members of our education community can thrive.

The parent survey is voluntary and anonymous and all responses will be combined for reporting. Completing the survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Data collection is currently open with a closing date of Friday, May 31, 2019.
