Every Voice Counts
The Lambton Kent District School Board (LKDSB) has released board-wide results from the School Climate Survey conducted April 1-12, 2019. The survey gathered input from students in Grades 4-12, staff and parents/guardians to assist with planning programs and decision-making related to supporting safe and inclusive school environments.
A total of 8,356 students in Grades 4-12 participated in the online surveys, along with 1,674 parents/guardians and 693 staff.
The surveys included a variety of questions on topics such as eating and sleeping habits to mental health, well-being and bullying. The surveys were developed with input from students, parents/guardians; school and Board administration, including Mental Health, Safe Schools and Indigenous Education representatives, and Chatham-Kent Public Health and Lambton Public Health.
The school Multi-Disciplinary Team, which includes the principal, teachers and education workers, is reviewing individual school results to develop plans to support students and promote positive school climates.
Contact your school for individual school results.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the surveys. The LKDSB looks forward to continuing the conversations with students and parents/guardians and working together to improve students' outcomes.
