The phrase Make Your Voice Heard in the middle surrounded by the phrase translated in a variety of languages. Bottom of the image reads - Visit - May 2-13, 2022 - for Grades Jk-8.We are excited to launch the TCDSB Parent/Guardian Census Of Students JK – 8. This is an opportunity for parents/guardians of all students in Grades JK-8 to share more about who they are through the collection of identity-based information (e.g., language, Indigenous Identity, racial identity, and religion or spiritual affiliation). This is part of TCDSB's ongoing efforts to improve our schools and create welcoming and inclusive environments for our students to succeed.

In addition to the commitments outlined in both the Multi-Year Strategic Plan and Equity Action Plan, Ontario’s Anti-Racism Act of 2017 requires all public sector organizations, including school boards, to collect “identity-based” data about the people using their services to eliminate systemic racism and advance equity.

The Census should take less than 15 minutes to complete and is an opportunity for parents/guardians to tell us more about their child(ren). All responses will be confidential, and no individual student will be identified in the process. We are interested in the identities of all students as a group and will summarize the information to provide a more equitable and inclusive learning environment.


What Will You be Invited to Do?

On May 2, 2022, an email will be sent to your child(ren)’s TCDSB email account to complete the short online survey which will remain open until May 13, 2022. This invitation will be unique for each child within your family.

If you have any questions regarding the TCDSB Parent/Guardian Census of Students JK – 8, please do not hesitate to contact your principal who can contact our equity or research department directly. You can also visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)​ page.
