The 2017 Anti-Racism Act requires school districts to conduct identity data collection for the purpose of obtaining relevant information that can be used to help districts eliminate systemic racism and advance racial equity.

This pilot project involves all school boards in Ontario. In our Board, École catholique de La Vérendrye and École catholique Franco-Supérieur have been selected to participate in this pilot project.

This data collection is conducted by the Center for Leadership and Evaluation Inc. (CLÉ) in a confidential and secure manner. By collecting this data, our Council will be able to cross-reference this data with data on achievement, attendance, perceived school climate, and well-being, among others, to better understand racial inequities. This will also support the planning of intervention plans to advance equity and eliminate achievement gaps between various identity groups.

The questions asked address topics such as languages used, religious affiliation, ethnic identity, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, and status in Canada.

The questionnaire is completely voluntary!

The parents of our Franco-Superior students and the students of 7e à 12e year students at the La Vérendrye CST received a message inviting them to complete a survey between October 27 and November 8.

Thank you for your participation!
