2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
The results are now available for the 2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 20 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan:
- Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students
- Priority 2: Enhance high quality learning and working environments
- Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement, partnerships and communication
The overall Division results represent 2,918 responses from parents and guardians across EIPS. This was an increase in responses from 2,678 in the previous year.
The survey results for Sherwood Heights Junior High School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
- Students individual needs are met
- Growth in numeracy and literacy
- Quality of education
Opportunities for growth:
- Understanding of First Nations, Metis and Inuit Culture and History
- Communicating citizenship rights and responsibilities
- Identify community partnerships and communicate with our school community
The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
