2015 TELL THEM FROM ME – Parent Survey!
The South Shore Regional School Board invites all parents/guardians to participate in this year's anonymous Tell Them From Me Survey. This survey provides an opportunity for our parents/guardians to provide crucial feedback that can shape the learning environment at all schools within the South Shore Regional School Board. Information collected from this survey combined with information collected from teachers and students will help guide our Continuous School Improvement (CSI) initiatives and decision making both at school and board level.
This Survey was created by The Learning Bar, based on the work by co-founder Dr. J. Douglas Willms. Dr. Willms is known nationally and internationally for his work on the development of educational monitoring systems, including the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The survey will be open for completion between 30th March and 15th April 2015. Thank you for taking time to the survey, your opinion is highly appreciated.
