“We need parental involvement so we can hear from parents what is important to them regarding their child’s education and what they would like to see in their schools.”

Acting Supt. Cal Johnson says the information is import to plan for the future.

“The feedback we receive from parents and guardians in the survey will help shape school and divisional planning which directly impacts the educational experience for each child,” Johnson says.

“All of us working together will positively impact the success of Northland students.”

The survey is an opportunity for students, parents and guardians and teachers to comment on their level of satisfaction with the quality of education, parental involvement and the learning environment.

For questions, parents are requested to contact their local school.

Education Minister Adriana LaGrange says information from the surveys is vital to build education.

“To ensure our education system is setting students up for success, we need to know what is working well and where there is room for improvement,” LaGrange says in a letter posted on the survey link.

“Every parent has an important role to play and I thank you for your diligence and dedication.

“It is important we continue to hear from you.”
