YRDSB Parent Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Our parents and guardians are our strongest partners in education and we want to hear from you. The York Region District School Board is inviting all parents and guardians to complete a survey between May 1 and May 19, 2017. This survey provides an important opportunity for parent/guardian voice and the results will be used to guide planning to support student achievement and well-being.

The survey is aligned with the priorities of the Board Improvement Plan and includes questions about school learning environments, mathematics, student mental health and well-being, equity and inclusivity, and caring and safe schools. The survey is in compliance with the Ontario Education Act and fulfills the Ministry of Education’s mandate to conduct surveys related to school climate.

The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The English version of the survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/yrdsb2017ParentSurvey.
Paper surveys are available in English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Farsi, Gujarati, Hebrew, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Sri Lankan Tamil, Urdu and Vietnamese. Please contact the school to request a paper copy. If you choose to complete the survey on paper, please return it to the school in the envelope provided.

We value parent/guardian input and encourage you to complete the survey before May 19th. The information you provide will be anonymous, considered confidential and kept in strict accordance with all relevant legislation. You may choose to complete one survey for each child.


Survey results will be available in the late Fall through your school principal. Please contact the school if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.
