Diversity Data Survey


In the Winter/Spring of 2019, the Upper Grand District School Board conducted 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 was to gain a better understanding of the students and families we serve, so that we can program effectively and provide the right supports for every student to achieve their full potential.

The UGDSB is committed to fostering safe, equitable and inclusive learning and working environments for all students, staff and the community, regardless of age, ancestry, colour, race, citizenship, ethnic origin, place of origin, creed, disability, family status, marital status, gender identity, gender expression, socio-economic status, employment, housing, sex, and sexual orientation.

Survey Info

The Diversity Data Survey is now closed – the survey was open from March 22 and April 18. 

The online survey was voluntary and anonymous.

The survey was open to all UGDSB staff, parents/guardians of students under Grade 4, and students in Grades 4-12+. Data collected from the survey will provide the school board with valuable information to help improve our schools for the benefit of all students. Participation from our staff, students and parent community is greatly appreciated.

Translated versions of the survey are available in English, French, Punjabi, Arabic, Vietnamese and Mandarin.


If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the UGDSB’s Equity Lead Jessica Rowden at [email protected] or (519) 822-4420 ext. 742.
