Your voice matters! Students, parents and staff are invited to take the UGDSB School Climate survey
February 6, 2018
GUELPH, Ontario – The Upper Grand District School Board is asking students in grades 4 to 12, school staff, as well as parents/guardians with children in grades 4 to 12 to participate in the School Climate survey.
School climate refers to the learning environment and relationships within a school. In a positive school environment, people feel safe, included and accepted.
The UGDSB cares about the climate in our schools and the mental health and well-being of our students and staff.
The UGDSB is calling on all students, parents, teachers and school staff to share their opinions and experiences about the climate in their school.
Survey responses are anonymous. The board is not administering the survey; researchers at the University of Guelph are administering the survey. Answers to the survey will only be accessible by the researchers.
The UGDSB will only receive a report from the researchers that describe the findings based on groups of people, not individual responses. Individual schools will only receive reports on group data if there are sufficient numbers to ensure anonymity.
For more information about why you should participate in the survey, please watch the following video:
The Upper Grand DSB would like to thank you in advance for participating in the survey and making sure your voice is heard.
