Parents and guardians have another way to participate in the education system at Northland School Division.
Until Feb. 29, Northland schools will be working with parents to fill out the Accountability Pillar Survey.
“Accountability Pillar Survey, parent and guardian participation rate is of high importance to NSD,” says Robin Guild, board chair.
“We want to have as many parents and guardians as possible complete the survey. We need parental involvement so we can learn what is working in schools and what needs improvement.”
The Accountability Pillar uses a set of 16 indicators. Data on these indicators consists of surveys of students, parents, guardians, and teachers on various aspects of education quality, student outcomes such as dropout and high school completion rates, and provincial assessments of student learning.
All surveys are anonymous and ask questions about experiences with your school.
In addition to English and French, the parent survey is available in Cree and Dene. The responses collected in the survey are provided to and reviewed by all school staff, the board of trustees and the Alberta government.
