In February, we released findings from Canada’s largest Student Census that will help us develop strategies and adjust supports that further strengthen schools and help every student succeed. Following the first Grade 7-12 Student Census conducted in 2006, we introduced a number of initiatives and we now have numbers that demonstrate their success. Data shows us that 92% of students feel safe in TDSB classrooms and we saw a 10% increase in the number of students eating lunch daily.
- Over 90% of students feel their background is respected by adults in school
- 83% of TDSB’s Grade 7-8 students have had their eyesight tested; 51% have had their hearing tested which is an increase of 20 percent from 2006
- 14% increase in parents attending parent/teacher interviews
