2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
The results are now available for the 2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 20 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-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, partnerships and communication
The overall Division results represent 2,918 responses from parents and guardians across EIPS. This was an increase in responses from 2,678 in the previous year.
The survey results for Vegreville Composite High School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
95% indicated very satisfied and satisfied with “The school keeps me informed about my child’s progress and achievement”
94% indicated very satisfied and satisfied with “The school staff care about my child”
88% indicated very satisfied and satisfied with “How satisfied are you with the quality of education your child is receiving at his or her school?”
60% indicated improved with “In your opinion, has the quality of education your child has experienced at school improved, stayed the same or declined in the past three years?”
Opportunities for growth:
14% indicated they were dissatisfied or did not know with “How satisfied are you with the resources available to support your child's learning?”
The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2015-2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.
VCHS Education Accountability Pillar Results October 2017
The Accountability Pillar provides a way for school authorities to measure their success, and assess their progress towards meeting their learning goals.
The Accountability Pillar:
- Gives school boards a consistent way to measure their success and assess progress using a broad spectrum of measures
- Helps identify areas that need improvement and set priorities for the future
- Provides school authorities with a wide range of data showing how they are performing
- Focuses on more than student achievement, resulting in a more complete approach to accountability and system improvement
This combined data provides a picture of school authority and individual school performance, including areas of success and potential challenges that may lie ahead. School authorities and schools analyze this data and the many variables that may affect results, allowing school authorities to focus on improving student learning and achievement.
Families should periodically check their fees balance using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. School fees need to be in good standing to be eligible to participate on athletic teams, field trips, graduation activities and other school related activities and events. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
