Mid-School Year Check-In: Results and Next Steps

Earlier this year, we invited students, parents/guardians and staff to participate in our Winter Survey to better understand their experiences this year and gather feedback to continue to improve how we do things at the OCDSB.


We thank everyone who participated for sharing their comments with us. From February 16-26, 12,365 participants shared 17,052 thoughts. Summaries of the results are available on the survey webpage


It has been a challenging year. Through the survey, we heard about the learning challenges some students have experienced online and in-person; feedback on the schedule; some frustration with the secondary model; the desire for more opportunities for social interaction; experiences with safety guidelines; and concern for student well-being. We also heard praise and gratitude for the work of the hard-working teachers and custodians in our District.


Over the past few months, the District has reviewed the feedback and continues to work to address the comments and concerns that were voiced. In response, we have taken immediate actions to improve supports and resources for students and staff, as well as working on long-term plans for the rest of this school year and next year. For more information about the work we are doing, please visit our survey webpage


As we move forward in this work, additional updates will be shared.
