Speak Up Survey
Time to launch the 2016 Student Speak Up Surveys!  The survey timeframe is Monday, December 5 to Friday, December 16, 2016 for secondary schools.
The purpose of the survey is to seek updated feedback from students to help inform effective mental health programming and services to ensure success is fostered in every student, every day.  The results will also be used to provide individual schools with the information necessary for ongoing student support planning in each of the three areas. In addition, this is an opportunity for students to have their voices heard on these important topics.
Surveys will be anonymous, the results are purely confidential, and participation is strictly voluntary. Teachers and staff will not be aware of individual student responses.
As part of the LKDSB’s Mental Health Strategy, we want to engage our students and families by providing opportunities, such as this one, so that we continue to promote positive mental well-being in our schools. If you have any questions about this survey or the broader Mental Health Strategy, please contact Mental Health Lead, Ellie Fraser, at 519-336-1530 x31351 or email ellie.fraser@lkdsb.net.
