'Tell Them From Me' Parent Survey
Beginning April 17 through to May 17, 2013, parents/guardians with children in the Halton District School Board are invited to complete the ‘Tell Them From Me’ Parent Survey.
The Board is asking for feedback about issues related to school effectiveness such as learning opportunities; communication; school culture and climate. The results of the survey provide important data, which are used to shape system and school effectiveness planning to improve student learning.
Students and staff will complete the ‘Tell Them From Me’ survey at school. Parents may complete their survey online from wherever Internet access is available. If parents do not have Internet access, they are asked to discuss alternatives with their child’s school administrator.
An invitation and link to complete the survey was emailed to parents/guardians on record earlier this week.
Contact Frank Nezavdal, Department of Research and Accountability, with any questions at 905-335-3663 Ext. 3381 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any difficulties with the survey please contact the Information Centre at 905-333-4372 (HDSB) or 1-888-432-4372 (HDSB), Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm or by e-mail: email@example.com
