School Climate Survey: Parent Feedback

SEB Families,

Today our students are celebrating ‘Pink Shirt Day’ and discussing in class how to increase the peace and continuously demonstrate Kindness. It is wonderful to see the show of support.

A reminder that all teachers in grades 4-8 are administering the Middle Development Inventory (MDI) in the next couple of weeks. This data will provide school staff with student voice around many topics.

Previously distributed was a letter that explains this survey completely.

Through this process, all families of SEB are also invited to complete a parent survey, providing school staff your viewpoints on aspects of SEB life. This link will take you to our specific survey for Sir Edgar Bauer. Thank you for considering completing this and sharing your insight. We value our parent partners greatly.
