The results are now available for the 2021-22 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 a series of questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS Four-Year Education Plan: 2018-22 (Year 4).
- 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
The overall Division results represent 3,450 responses from parents and guardians across the Division.
The survey results for Lamont Elementary have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
- 95.55% of parents felt that their child is demonstrating growth in literacy
- 93.33% of parents felt that their child is demonstrating growth in numeracy
Opportunities for growth:
- Only 47 parents/guardians completed the survey. This low participation rate makes it challenging to get accurate feedback from our parent community. We have included a parent engagement goal in our School Education Plan for the 2022/2023 school year.
- 68.9% of parents felt that their child has an understanding of First Nations, Metis and Inuit culture and 20% didn’t know. We see this as an opportunity to explore different ways of sharing with the school community what students are being taught about diversity and inclusion
The feedback gathered in the survey will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
