The OurSCHOOL Parent Survey helps strengthen the relationships between parents, teacher and school collaboration by providing schools with a deeper understanding of parents’ perceptions of their child’s experiences at home and school.
Each license allows you to survey up to two times during the school year with up to 2,500 participants per survey.
The OurSCHOOL Parent Survey helps educators and school leaders gather meaningful feedback while engaging parents and guardians. Parental involvement is a known factor to increase positive learning outcomes, and a critical part of building a healthy school culture where students can thrive.
The survey is based primarily on Joyce Epstein's framework for fostering positive relationships between schools and their community of parents and guardians. Successful schools establish effective communication with their community, encourage involvement in their child's schoolwork, and enlist their school community to volunteer in activities and participate in committees. This survey assesses parent and guardians' perceptions of their children's learning experiences both at home and at school.
The survey includes these following topics:– Parents feel welcome – Parents are informed – Parents support learning at home – Support for learning – Support for positive behaviour – Feeling safe at school Inclusion – Parent participation at school – Bullying and exclusion – Time spent doing homework
When you choose OurSCHOOL, you get so much more than just an online survey.
