Q1 Survey results: Students, Families, Staff

This is what we heard from you in Q1

SA Q 1 Snapshot: How are we doing?

At the end of Q1 Qualitative and quantitative data was pulled from surveys sent out to students, families and staff.

The purpose of the surveys was to provide a snapshot of how SA was doing in relation to the three focus points for hybrid learning this year:

  1. Health and Safety of all in our building
  2. Supporting Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) of students and teachers
  3. Providing the best learning opportunities for all learners in the current context

Surveys were sent out three times in Friday weekly emails and posted several times on social media. In addition, separate emails were  sent to students and families on Monday of the last week and the Friday of the deadline week. 

The results of the surveys from students, families and staff are below. At the end of the document, I have tried to demonstrate how we have assimilated quantitative and qualitative feedback into Q2. 

It is important to note that these surveys were completed before we moved to full remote on Nov 13th and subsequently back to special populations on Dec 7th.

Thank you in advance for providing feedback in our Q2 survey, to be sent out later in January.

Best wishes

Chris
