Invitation to Consultation- We All Count: HWDSB Student Census 2021

HWDSB is committed to identifying and addressing education inequities at all levels. A critical step to ensuring equity is to gain a clearer understanding of who our students are and of their school experiences. As part of the HWDSB Equity Action Plan, HWDSB will be collecting voluntary identity-based student data in April 2021 through the- We All Count: HWDSB Student Census project.

Creating a consistent approach to collecting and analyzing identity-based data will help HWDSB to be able to identify where systemic barriers exist, and to determine how to eliminate discriminatory biases to support equity, student achievement and well-being through evidence-informed decision making.
The following consultation sessions are planned to get feedback from students. Please register with the group that applies to you.

1. Student Trustees and Student Senate: February 3, 2021, 5-7pm
