School Climate Survey
Building and sustaining positive and healthy school environments
Every two years, the Ontario Ministry of Education requires that a School Climate Survey be completed by students, staff, and families in order to provide input on the environment in our schools. In Catholic schools, our Catholic teaching on the dignity of the human person is the starting point for all issues of diversity. Catholic schools strive to create an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, welcomed, included and valued. We value your voice and ask for your input as we continue to build positive school climates.
The survey is voluntary and anonymous and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. The survey is available in English, Arabic, French, Simple Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, Russian, Vietnamese, and Portuguese. Any questions that you are not comfortable answering may be skipped. Survey results will only be reported on as groups of students, staff, or parents.
Students in Grades 4-12 will complete a survey at school, facilitated by their classroom teacher. 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. If you would like to first view the student survey, you may contact the school and make an appointment to view a hard copy. OCSB staff will also be invited to participate.
Please make sure you use the survey specific to your child’s school. There is a different survey link for each OCSB school. Please visit your school website for the School Climate Survey link for your school, located at the top of the school webpage, above the Announcements.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your valuable feedback.
