Save the Date! Student Census Parent Information Session on January 13th

HCDSB elementary families are invited to a virtual Parent Information Session on Thursday, January 13th, 2022 at 7:00 p.m., which will discuss the Student Census Survey, available from February 28 through April 4, 2022!

The Parent Information Session will be live-streamed and available on the Board’s YouTube channel at the scheduled time on January 13th.

What is the purpose of the Student Census? 

The HCDSB Student Census is an online survey that collects identity-based information about our student population. When linked to other student data sources, the identity-based information can help the HCDSB know more about our students and their experiences in school. This data will help our Board create and promote a more equitable and inclusive learning environment.

At the elementary level, for Kindergarten to Grade 8, parents and guardians will be able to complete the Student Census Survey with or for their children. However, participation in the census survey is voluntary. 

Please note that a second Parent Information Session for secondary school families will take place on Thursday, February 3rd, 2022.
