TDSB Releases 2017 Student and Parent Census Data

Sunday, November 18, 2018

Details about who TDSB students are, their school experiences, relationships at school, physical health and emotional well-being are all part of the 2017 Student and Parent Census released November 13, 2018 by the Toronto District School Board.

Each of the TDSB’s 582 schools uses their school-specific data to help inform decisions that directly impact and benefit their own unique community. At the system level, this data demonstrates trends that the TDSB can address through targeted support such as professional learning for staff, enhancing communication with students through the development of a Student Concern Protocol, for example, and establishing partnerships to enhance well-being programs and initiatives.

Quick Facts

  • The census was completed in April 2017.
  • This is the third census for students in Grade 7 to 12 and parents of students in JK to Grade 6. It is the first for students in Grades 4 to 6.

“Every student deserves a great education and student well-being and learning must be at the centre of every decision. This data is valuable for us to make informed decisions that will support students in meaningful ways that directly supports their achievement and well-being.”

Robin Pilkey, Chair, TDSB

“Knowing who our students are, how they feel about school and themselves and what their needs are is critical to our ability to develop learning environments, opportunities and supports that are relevant and beneficial. Responding to their voices is key and we will continue to involve students in conversations and planning to ensure their learning is engaging and leads to improved outcomes.”

John Malloy, Director, TDSB
