See Yourself in Limestone: Student Census

School boards across the province are asking students to complete this census to identify and eliminate discrimination and bias from schools and classrooms. In Limestone, See Yourself in Limestone Student Census will take place the week of November 23, 2020. The data collected through the census will help us learn more about our students – their backgrounds, experiences and needs.

The Census will be available for families to preview beginning November 9, 2020 on the Board website. There are three versions of the census: one for Kindergarten to Grade 3 students, which will be completed by families at home, a census for students in Grades 4 to 6 and a census for students in Grades 7 to 12. Students in Grades 4 to 12 will complete the survey during class time. Please watch for additional information in the coming weeks.
