5 Things to Know About the See Me in ALCDSB Survey
The first-ever See Me in ALCDSB Survey, a confidential student census, takes place May 9 to 20. We hope all students and families will participate. Here are five things to know about the survey:
The survey will collect student demographic and identity data, including information about language, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity and more. It also includes questions about school experience.
The information students and families share will impact program and support design and evaluation. Your contribution will help our schools and school board build on the work we are already doing to support equity, well-being and success for all students and provide a way to measure the impact of that work.
School staff won’t ever see individual responses to the survey. The data will be reviewed from a population level alongside other student data already collected under the Education Act to identify ways to improve equity and well-being for all students.
The more responses, the better! Participating in the survey is a simple thing you can do that could significantly impact the well-being of other children and families in our school community and beyond.
You can help spread the word. By better understanding our students, we can make sure programs, supports, and opportunities best suit their needs. Help encourage other families to participate in the survey. You can share the ALCDSB’s social media posts, or just mention the survey to friends. Every little bit helps!
The survey is for all Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Elementary parents/guardians will receive the survey by email on behalf of their children. Students in Grades 9 to 12 will have time to complete the survey at school.
