Building Brighter Futures Together @ OCDSB
Dear Colleagues,

During the period of November 21 and December 17, 2018, we invited our communities to share thoughts about what we're doing well, where we can improve, and what our priorities should be for the next 4 years.
Our goal was to get a sense of shared values and priorities from our students, staff, parents and community members. 
We're excited to report that we had 6441 individuals respond. Together, they shared 10,296 thoughts and assigned 178,131 stars to help identify top priorities. One area where we made important gains in terms of participation was with students. Here is a breakdown of respondents:
  • Parents – 4129 (3035 elementary; 1094 secondary)
  • Students – 1020 students
  • Staff – 1151
  • Community – 289
The feedback from the Idea Exchange is reported by theme. Thoughts with an average star score of 3.6 or higher are grouped by theme to show areas of high agreement. Six Top Themes emerged including Curriculum, School Environment, Teaching and Learning, Student Supports, HR & District Level, and Extra-Curricular and Physical Activity. Each theme has multiple sub-themes. You can explore the specific results and themes by question in the information below.
Understanding the Results
Top thoughts are thoughts with a high average star score, as determined by participant starring.
Top themes are themes with a large number of thoughts.
You can explore the results in full on our website here .
Your feedback has been very helpful in our work. Over the next two months, the Board will be developing a draft Strategic Plan. We expect this to be shared with the community for feedback in May 2019. Thank you for taking the time to contribute to this process.

Thank you

Camille Williams-Taylor
Director of Education
