The Ontario Ministry of Education requires all school boards to conduct a School Climate Survey every two years. These surveys provide input on the school environment and help the OCSB build positive school climates where everyone in the school community feels safe, welcomed, included, and valued.
The surveys are sent to students, staff, and families. The surveys are voluntary and anonymous. Any questions you feel uncomfortable answering may be skipped. Survey results will only be reported on groups of students, staff, or parents.
Students: All students in Grades 4-12 will complete a survey at school sometime between May 1 and May 15. The student survey includes questions measuring safety, bullying, equity, inclusivity, and student well-being. If you DO NOT want your child to participate in this survey, please advise your school Principal.
You can view the student survey at the links below:
Staff: Our school staff will also complete a survey.
Parents and Guardians: You will receive a separate email from your school on May 1, 2023, inviting you to complete the parent/guardian survey. The parent survey link will also be posted on the home page of your school’s website. We welcome your feedback.
Please contact your child’s school if you have any questions or would like more information. We look forward to hearing your feedback regarding the climate in our schools.
