Tell Them From Me
All Ontario schools are required to complete a Bi-annual School Climate Survey. The purpose of the survey is to better understand student perceptions about safety at school and ultimately help staff develop strategies to promote safe and inclusive schools.
All LDH Students will complete the survey on-line at school;
however, the survey is completely voluntary.
Parents who do not want their child to participate must advise the school in writing by the end of the school day on May 16th, 2013.
Students can decide whether they wish to complete the survey, but can also choose to skip certain questions. The survey is confidential; it does not ask for names and the results are reported at an aggregate level and NOT at an individual student level.
