SPS Parent Survey 2020-21

2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report  

The results are now available for the 2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in April. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. Part A of the survey included 21 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan

  • Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students 
  • Priority 2: Enhance high-quality learning and working environments 
  • Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement

The overall Division results represent 3,198 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. This was an increase in responses from 2,967 last year.  

The survey results for SouthPointe School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.  

Areas of strength: 

  • 84% of parents felt that their child is demonstrating growth in literacy and 87% in numeracy.
  • 90% of parents felt that their child’s school is safe and 85% felt that school staff care about their child.

Opportunities for growth: 

  • While 80% of parents felt that the school keeps them informed about their child’s progress, 14% disagreed and 5.5% strongly disagreed.
  • While 74% of parents felt their child has an understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture, 10% disagreed and 15% didn’t know.

The feedback gathered in Part A of the survey will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.   

After the local election this fall, the feedback gathered in Part B of the survey will be used by the incoming Board of Trustees to develop a new EIPS Four-Year Education Plan for 2022-26 and beyond—one that’s responsive to student and community needs and focused on continuous improvement. Thank you to all parents who provided suggestions on how the Division and Board of Trustees could consider updating the Four-Year Education Plan for future years. The Division will share more information about the feedback collected in Part B of the survey after the Board and administration complete their review of the data collected this fall.
