Accountability Pillar Survey - Please complete.
Your Voice Matters: Complete the Accountability Pillar Survey
This month, parents and guardians of Grade 4 through 12 students will receive a package from Alberta Education containing the Accountability Pillar survey. Every year at this time, this important survey is sent to the households of students in grades 4-12 for Andrew School. By filling it out, you can add your voice to the future of education in our school. We would like a 100% participation rate so that our data has validity.
The Accountability Pillar survey will ask you questions about your experience with your child’s school. For example, you may be asked to rate your satisfaction with the quality of education your child is receiving, the school environment, and safety within the school. When filling out the survey, if you don’t know the answer to a question, simply leave it blank and go to the next question. Your answers help inform the school education plan and goals for Andrew School.
Students and teachers will also fill out the survey. All responses are anonymous. The results are compiled by Alberta Education and shared with EIPS to assess satisfaction with the quality of education in its schools and to find ways to improve teaching and learning for all our children.
You may fill out the survey online or using the paper copy provided in the package you receive. All paper responses must be mailed in to Alberta Education by February 22, 2019. Online responses must be completed prior to Friday, March 8th.
The school will have technology available to complete your survey online in private on Wednesday, February 20th after the Andrew School Council Meeting and prior to the start of the Community Engagement.
Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey – your voice matters.
