2018-19 EIPS Parent Survey: We Want to Hear from You
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) wants to hear from you about your experiences with the Division and your school. Provide your feedback by completing the 2018-19 Parent Survey—open March 11-29.
Annually, EIPS conducts a parent survey to gauge its progress toward meeting the goals and priorities outlined in its Four-Year Education Plan. Families are asked a series of questions about their experiences with EIPS and the school their child attends, the overall performance of the Division, the quality of education being provided to students and areas for improvement.
New this year, the survey includes questions about cellphones and personal devices. Your feedback will help the EIPS Board of Trustees develop a policy about cellphones and their use within the classroom.
The survey feedback will help the Division develop new strategies to better serve students, families and the wider community.
TAKE THE SURVEY NOW
Survey closes March 29
NOTE: The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you want to share the experience of more than one child attending an EIPS school, simply complete the survey again.
Thank you for your participation.
Kindergarten Registration Starts Soon!
Is your child turning five on or before Dec. 31, 2019? If so, it’s almost time to register for kindergarten.
Kindergarten registration opens for the 2019-20 school year on Feb. 1, 2019. Details are available at www.eips.ca/registration/kindergarten.
To help families prepare, Elk Island Public Schools has put together an online toolkit—available at www.eips.ca/kindergarten—to make the transition as smooth as possible. The kit includes information on registration, important dates, programming options, what to expect, eligibility, how to find your designated school, transportation and more.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
