Create an equitable school environment
where all students can thrive

Foster a culture of fairness and inclusion

We know not all students experience school in the same way. The reality is that many students are prevented from achieving educational prosperity as a result of societal, economic, or cultural conditions that limit their opportunities, freedoms, and dignity.

Every day, leaders like you strive to close gaps, eliminate barriers, and advance the fair treatment of all students and create an equitable school environment. The question is, how do we establish consistent and effective practices for making evidence-based decisions around equity and equality?

OurSCHOOL Demographics

Out of the box, the OurSCHOOL student survey reporting reveals insights into the climate of inclusivity, diversity, and equity within your school. Students’ differing experiences of engagement, belonging, bullying, safety, and well-being tell a rich and compelling story.

You can dig below the surface to examine disparities between students of diverse gender, sexual orientation; or by newcomer, Indigenous, English-language learner, or socioeconomic status. You can easily add your own custom demographics to measure the experiences of other populations as well.

OurSCHOOL now meets the legislative requirements of Ontario’s Anti-Racism Act; PPM 144: Bullying Prevention and Intervention; and Anti-Racism Data Standards.
