Education Satisfaction Survey

BCMinEducFrom January 5 to April 30, 2015, the Satisfaction Survey (BC Ministry of Education) will be opened to all students in grades 4, 7, 10 and 12, their parents and all school staff.

The Survey gathers opinions on the school environment, student safety, student achievement and other topics to help schools, districts and the Ministry of Education plan and improve educational services.

Access to the survey is simple and secure. Parents can access the online survey in two ways this year:
1. by anonymous logon number, which schools provide
2. by direct access with no logon number. The direct access option is a pilot this year to determine feasibility for ongoing use.

It takes about 10 minutes to complete the online survey.
