Student Census secondary school results now available

​​Following a successful launch of its first Student Census, the Peel District School Board has released Student Census 2018: Secondary School Report, a breakdown of results for over 39,000 students in grades 9 to 12. Elementary and board results are expected to be made available by March 2020 to help inform board and school decision-making.

​​The Peel board launched its first board-wide Student Census​ in November 2018, following a motion by the Board of Trustees. Students in grades 4 to 12 were invited to complete the census in class, while parents/guardians of students in kindergarten to grade 3 received a questionnaire to fill out on behalf of their child(ren). The census was voluntary and confidential—all responses are stored in a secure database, accessed only by the Peel board's Research and Accountability department.​​

The full secondary report is available at www.peelschools.org/StudentCensus. It includes a breakdown of responses for each question for secondary students only. This report does not provide connections between how students identify and their experiences—that data is still being analyzed.

Throughout the 2019-20 school year, the Peel board will release a series of Student Census reports, including the results of elementary students, a full board report and in-depth reports examining the experiences of specific identities within the Peel board. In Spring 2020, school administrators will receive school-specific data to help plan for student success in their school communities.

The census follows Ontario's Education Equity Action Plan​, the province's strategy for identifying and eliminating discriminatory practices, barriers, and biases from schools and classrooms, and is a critical step to ensuring equity and addressing the factors affecting it.
