2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report 

The results are now available for the 2020-21 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in April. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. Part A of the survey included 21 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan:

  • Priority 1: Promote growth and success for all students
  • Priority 2: Enhance high-quality learning and working environments
  • Priority 3: Enhance public education through effective engagement


The overall Division results represent 3,198 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. This was an increase in responses from 2,967 last year. The survey results for Bev Facey have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.

Areas of strength:

  • How satisfied are you with the quality of teaching at your child's school? (Strongly Agree 45.88%, Agree 44.13%) 90.01%
  • My child's school encourages my child to be a responsible, respectful and engaged citizen. (Strongly Agree 50.20%, Agree 41.18%) 91.38%

  • How satisfied are you with the leadership in your child's school? (Strongly Agree 56.08%, Agree 35.69%) 91.77%

  • My child has an understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture and history. (Strongly Agree 35.45%, Agree 50.00%) 85.45%


Opportunities for growth:

  • My child's demonstrating growth in literacy. (Strongly Agree 32.46%, Agree 51.49%) 83.95%
  • My child's demonstrating growth in numeracy. (Strongly Agree 36.57%, Agree 48.51%) 85.08%

  • How satisfied are you with the resources available to support your child's learning (Strongly Agree 40.08%, Agree 46.03%) 86.11%


The feedback gathered in Part A of the survey will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2020-24 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.


After the local election this fall, the feedback gathered in Part B of the survey will be used by the incoming Board of Trustees to develop a new EIPS Four-Year Education Plan for 2022-26 and beyond—one that’s responsive to student and community needs and focused on continuous improvement. Thank you to all parents who provided suggestions on how the Division and Board of Trustees could consider updating the Four-Year Education Plan for future years. The Division will share more information about the feedback collected in Part B of the survey after the Board and administration complete their review of the data collected this fall.

Updating Your Contact Information

Have you recently moved, or has your contact information changed throughout the past year? EIPS encourages families to review the information it has on file to ensure it’s up to date. Using the Correction and Verification Form, available through the PowerSchool Parent Portal, families can review the current information on file for each student—addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, parent and guardian information, emergency contacts, medical details and other related information—and submit any updates needed.


Reviewing and updating the form ensures the Division has the most up-to-date information regarding your child. Your review is especially important if there’s any communication the Division or school needs to send out over the summer months related to classes next year.

All EIPS families are asked to review their child’s Correction and Verification Form by Monday, June 14 at noon. After this time, the form will be turned off for the remainder of the school year and not available again to families until the start of the 2021-22 school year.


NOTE: Only submit updates for the changes that have already taken place. If you’re moving this summer, you’ll submit the necessary updates to your address through the Correction and Verification Form at the start of next school year after you’ve moved.


If you have questions about the form or are having trouble with your PowerSchool Parent Portal account, contact the school at 780-467-0044.

Accessing User Accounts: Students Leaving EIPS

Is your child graduating from or leaving EIPS at the end of the school year? If so, they must ensure any information they want to retain from their school cloud accounts is downloaded onto a personal device before leaving.

  • Google account – Students must download any wanted content before September 1—download files individually or in bulk using Google Takeout.
  • Microsoft account – Students must download any wanted content from their OneDrive account before September 1.

After Sept. 1, 2021, EIPS will deactivate the account and delete all remaining files. For more information, contact the school at 780-467-0044.

Student Transportation: 2021-22 registration open

Planning to use Student Transportation in the 2021-22 school year? All students who indicated needing transportation services through the returning student registration process are now registered. Families registered will receive tentative route schedules and invoices by the end of the month—fees are due June 30, 2021.


For those students who didn’t indicate needing transportation service through the pre-enrolment process and want to now register, simply contact EIPS Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or email st@eips.ca. For more information about EIPS Student Transportation visit www.eips.ca/transportation.


Families can pay fees online using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. To pay in-person contact Student Transportation to make an appointment.
