Elementary ‘Thoughtexchange’ on Current Learning Environments

Dear Families,

Thank you for your ongoing support this school year as we continue to adjust to changing circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The York Region District School Board is committed to ensuring our students continue to have effective teaching and learning through access to technology, resources and engaging learning experiences and environments.

To further support students and families, the Board will continue to gather parent/guardian and student feedback on learning environments. We want to hear from elementary families and students to better understand best practices and suggestions for student learning and well-being support.

We are using an online tool called Thoughtexchange to invite meaningful feedback from our students and families. Parents and guardians of elementary students are encouraged to support their children in responding to the Thoughtexchange. The current Thoughtexchange asks families and students:

What successes have you/your child experienced this school year?

What supports do you feel will increase your/your child’s learning and engagement experiences?

Please provide any comments or suggestions you feel may help us when considering the improvement of your/your child’s learning experiences.

To participate and learn more, please visit the YRDSB website.   This opportunity closes on February 8 at 11:59 p.m.

Please visit www.yrdsb.ca/covid19 for school board information and www.york.ca/coronavirus for Public Health information.

Thank you again for your ongoing support.
