"Getting to Great"
Planning for Improvement survey is now live on the HRSB website.
The purpose of this letter is to provide you with the details
of the survey and information on why completion of this survey is so
important to the success of students within our board.
This survey allows students, parents(s)/guardian(s),
and teachers throughout the Halifax Regional School Board to share
information that will help us improve schools.
The result of the survey will not be used to evaluate
individuals. Our goal is
to make every school a great school, but we cannot get to great
without you. Your
voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the
strengths and challenges at your child’s school, so we can do our
part to enhance the opportunities every school holds for students to
learn. The survey is
voluntary and we hope you as parent(s) and guardian(s) will answer
as many questions as you can but you are not required to respond to
any questions that you do not wish to answer.
Your input is valuable in helping us make
improvements that will directly impact your child’s learning and
Please remember, all survey information is anonymous and is not used
to evaluate students. At
the end of the survey, you will find space to make any additional
comments to support our journey towards improved student
