Check In Survey Results

Thames Valley continues to provide opportunities for staff, students and families to share their experiences with learning during the 2020-21 school year.

The results of our first Check-In survey, which was available online from November 26-December 4, are now available. Students in grades 5-12, families of all students, and all staff were invited to complete the Check-In. We heard from families of students in all grade levels, and staff members from 99% of all Thames Valley schools responded to the first Check-In.

Our students, families and our educators continue to do amazing work and show great creativity, resilience and dedication. Below is a snapshot of what we heard from our communities and what we are doing in response.
