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.

  • Growth in numeracy and literacy
