Accountability Survey 2016 -2016
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensure its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting regular surveys.
In November, the Division invited parents and guardians to participate in an online parent survey. They were asked 15 questions about the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement, and more. The online survey received an impressive 19 per cent response rate, with more than 3,170 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. Throughout the coming months, we will use the results of the parent survey to help inform its school and Division planning.
The complete results report, including summaries of participation and responses by question, is now available.
