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 Andrew School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength*:
- Andrew School students have demonstrated growth in literacy.
- There is parent perception that students individual needs are met.
- Andrew parents indicate the students at Andrew School are encouraged.
Opportunities for growth*:
- There is a perception that discipline is not consistent.
- In the area of community partnerships, there is some perception the school has not partnered with groups like Saffron, Kyes, Green Certificate, lunch programs, after school programs, RAP, Tools for Schools etc.
- Parents indicated they are unsure or dissatisfied with access to resources.
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.
*These strengths and opportunities for improvement will be discussed at the Parent Advisory Meeting May 29th at 4:00.
You should order a yearbook...just saying. LOL
We are once again putting together a yearbook and we hope you order one. The cost is $25/book and can be paid with cash or cheque (made payable to "Andrew School") or you can order online" this year. Please print off the form and bring it into the school. Or stop by the school library or school office to learn more. If you have already paid for one...thank you!
* - Please ignore the Andrew High School on the top of the page. The yearbook is indeed for all the classes, not just high school.
