2018-19 EIPS Parent Survey Results Report
The results are now available for the 2018-19 EIPS Parent Survey conducted in March. Thank you to all families who took the time to share their feedback with the Division. The survey included 21 questions related to the three priorities outlined in the EIPS 2018-22 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, partnerships and communication
The overall Division results represent 3,713 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. This was an increase in responses from 2,918 in the previous year.
The survey results for Ardrossan Junior Senior High School have helped us identify the following areas of strength and opportunities for growth.
Areas of strength:
- School keeps families informed about child’s progress and achievement.
- Quality of education that their child is receiving at Ardrossan Jr. Sr. High School
Opportunities for growth:
- Physical condition of the school
- Community partnerships
The feedback gathered will help our school and the Division measure its progress toward meeting the priorities and goals outlined in the EIPS 2018-22 Four-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve students and the wider community moving forward.

Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
In the event of an emergency, Elk Island Public Schools and Ardrossan Jr. Sr. High School have procedures in place. View a message from EIPS Superintendent and see the Emergency Preparedness & Response Guide for different situations.
