Survey respondants ‘very/somewhat satisfied’ with school board

Results from a public survey hosted by Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board indicate satisfaction with school board interactions and the likelihood to recommend an HPEDSB school.

The online survey objectives were to measure agreement and alignment with current goals and to determine whether new goals should be included in the planning for the next multi-year system plan, said Kerry Donnell, Communications Officer with the board. Secondary objectives were to evaluate communication preferences and assess experiences from customer service.

“We are very pleased with the input from our internal and external stakeholders,” said Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education. “The survey results are being used now, along with other data, to plan for our new strategic plan which will come into effect in the fall.”

Survey highlights
·  62 per cent of respondents said they are very/somewhat satisfied with their experience interacting with HPEDSB.

· 64 per cent of respondents said they are likely to recommend a school of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board as an education provider.

·  Email is the most preferred method of communication by which to receive information from HPEDSB (48%), followed by school websites (39%), the HPEDSB website (39%) and school newsletters (36%).

A total of 1,547 respondents completed the survey (a higher number started the survey). Members of the community, parent and guardians accounted for two-thirds of survey respondents (66%). Employees accounted for 15 per cent of respondents. Representatives of community agencies and students accounted for 3 per cent each. ‘Other’ respondents were a mix and included ‘concerned citizens’, former students and parents of future students.

The board states the margin of error ranges from +/- 2.5 percentage points at the 95 per cent confidence level (n=1,547) to +/- 1.9 percentage points (n=2,705). The survey instrument was refined and results were analyzed by Quadra Research.
