Subject: Request for Feedback – Family Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This year, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is launching new annual school development surveys to replace previous school development and school climate surveys. The new surveys were designed and tested for reliability and validity by Panorama Education and researchers at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, and are currently being used by over 7,000 schools in 15+ countries. The Department piloted the surveys using online survey administration in five schools in Fall 2016, and the feedback from the pilot was used to make adjustments to the survey instruments.

The results of the Family Survey will help schools better understand the perceptions of the parents/ guardians in their school community. Together with feedback from students and staff, the survey data will help schools to identify strengths and areas for growth as they engage in school development.

The survey is anonymous, which means that we cannot connect your survey responses to you. We encourage everyone to participate so that we have the most accurate representation of family perceptions at your school.

Please complete the Family Survey  by May 23, 2017 by clicking on the following link: https://www.research.net/r/SDFamilyEN. If you do not have internet access, you may contact your school to arrange access to a school computer or mobile device for survey completion.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new school development surveys, please contact:

         Jennifer Smith at 709-729-5588 or jenniferfsmith@gov.nl.ca or

        Patricia Emberley at 709-729-6850 or patriciaemberley@gov.nl.ca

Thank you for your participation and for being a valued member of your school community.

Sincerely,
