School Development Surveys

Please use the following link to complete the

2019 School Development Survey for Families

Why should I complete this survey?

This survey gives parents/guardians an opportunity to provide feedback to the administrators of their child’s

school on topics that are important for school development.

How will the information be used?

The primary purpose of the survey is to support the school development process. The survey results will be

provided to your child’s school and used with other data in the school development process to identify the

school’s strengths and challenges. Your school will then create and implement a plan to build on successes

and address areas of challenge.


**Students must dress in outdoor appropriate clothes as we will be going outside during lunch whenever possible.

**When dropping off students in front of the school please be advised it is drop and go only. If you wish to walk your child in to school, please park down by the soccer field.
