Dear Parent/Guardian,

Mitchell Middle School will be participating in an online school survey for students called the

OurSCHOOL Student Survey. Please find the details of the survey implementation below.

Who: All students at Mitchell Middle School

When: Dates will vary per class, but all surveys will take place between April 10 and May 12

Where: At MMS

Why: We are taking part in this survey as a Divisional mandate to develop evidence-based school improvement initiatives with the purpose of effective school planning. Our hope is that this survey provides students with an opportunity to have their voice heard in a safe and constructive way.

About the OurSCHOOL Student Survey:

● Allows students to share their feedback anonymously on their experiences at school, school environment and school improvement programs.

● Participation in the survey is voluntary, however all students are encouraged to participate.

● The time required to complete the survey may vary, but it is designed to be completed in approximately 35-40 minutes.

Survey measures include such topics as behaviours and attitudes linked to student success, emotional and social well-being and physical health. For more information about the OurSCHOOL Student Survey, please visit The Learning Bar Inc.’s website:
