Every Student Counts Survey – Extension

Dear Families, 

As you may know, York Region District School Board is currently engaging students in the Every Student Counts Survey. 

On April 24, 2023, families received an email notifying them that the survey period is open. Families of students in Kindergarten-Grade 3 will have now received an invitation letter from their school, which includes a survey link and survey code to complete the survey at home. 

We thank everyone who has already completed the survey. We have made the decision to extend the survey deadline. If you have not yet completed the survey, please consider doing so by May 19, 2023. We appreciate you taking the time to help us better understand our students and their experiences in school.

If you didn’t receive the survey invitation letter or have misplaced it, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
