OCSB School Climate Survey

We value your voice and ask for your input as we continue to build positive school climates. We would like your feedback on your experiences in our school so that we can continue to improve on the services provided by our school. This information will help the Ottawa Catholic School Board and school teams support the Board commitments of Be Well, Be Community, and Be Innovative next fall.

Every two years the Ontario Ministry of Education requires that a School Climate Survey be completed by students, staff, and families in order to provide input on the environment in our school. In Catholic schools, our Catholic teaching on the dignity of the human person is the starting point for all issues of diversity.  Catholic schools strive to create an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, welcomed, included and valued.

The surveys are voluntary and anonymous. Any questions that a respondent is not comfortable answering may be skipped. Survey results will only be reported on as groups of students, staff, or parents.

Students: All students in Grades 4-12 will complete a survey at school. The student survey includes questions measuring safety, bullying, equity, inclusivity and student well-being. If you do not want your child to participate in this survey, please advise the school principal. If you would like to first view the student survey, you may contact the school and make an appointment to view a hard copy.

Staff: Our school staff will also complete a survey.

We want to hear from you

Parents and Guardians: We encourage you to take 10 minutes to complete our survey. You are welcome to complete a survey for each of your children. Please make sure you use the survey specific to their school.

Please note that this survey is available in the following languages:  Arabic, French, Simple Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, Russian, Vietnamese, and Portuguese. On the first page of the survey, the choice of language appears as a drop down menu. Please select your language preference prior to proceeding with the survey.
