2016-2017 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
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 ensures its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
In January, the Division invited EIPS families to participate in the 2016–2017 Parent Survey. The survey included 15 questions regarding topics such as the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement and more. The overall response rate was 16 per cent, which included close to 2,700 responses from parents and guardians across the Division.
Highlight from this year’s survey include:
- 94 per cent of respondents reported being either very satisfied or satisfied with the quality of education their child is receiving at their school;
- 86 per cent of respondents strongly agree or agree their school keeps them informed about their child’s progress and achievements; and
- 89 per cent of respondents reported they strongly agree or agree their child’s school is safe.
The feedback gathered will help the Division measure its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015–2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve its students and the wider community.
