GUELPH, Ontario – This winter, the Upper Grand District School Board is conducting a system-wide survey, to help the board understand the demographic makeup, diversity and ongoing needs of our student population.

The sole purpose of this survey is to help the board gain a better understanding of the students and families in its communities, so it can program effectively and provide the right supports for every student to achieve their full potential.

The online survey is voluntary and anonymous. It is open to all UGDSB staff, parents/guardians of students under Grade 4, and students in Grades 4-12+.

The board is encouraging staff, students and parents to complete the survey so that their voices are heard and they are well represented in the board.

Please complete the student, staff or parent survey between March 22 and April 18 at www.ugdsb.ca/diversity-data.
