Another opportunity for NSD parents to participate in their child’s education

Posted on March 20

Northland School Division parents and guardians have another way to participate in their child’s education. Until March 24th, NSD schools will be working with parents to fill out the Alberta Education Assurance Survey.

 “The participation rate is of high importance to NSD,” said Cathy Wanyandie, Board Chair. “We want to have as many parents and guardians as possible complete the survey. We need parental involvement so we can hear from parents what is important to them regarding their child's education, and what they would like to see in their schools.”

The Alberta Education Assurance Survey is an opportunity for students, parents/guardians and teachers to provide feedback on their level of satisfaction with the education quality, parental involvement and the learning environment. The responses collected in the survey are provided to and reviewed by all school staff, the Board of Trustees, Administration, and Alberta Education.

“The feedback we receive from parents and guardians in the survey will help to shape school and divisional planning which directly impacts the educational experience for each child,” said Dr. Nancy Spencer-Poitras, Superintendent of Schools/CEO. “All of us working together will positively impact the success of NSD students. Thanks so much for participating in this important survey!”

Since the beginning of the survey administration, schools have been implementing strategies to help parents and guardians fill out this important survey. Please contact your local school if you have any questions.
