Letter from Director of Education Stuart Miller and Chair of the Board Kelly Amos


Dear Parent/Guardian,

In our continuing effort to increase school effectiveness, the Halton District School Board is once again asking for your input in the “Tell Them From Me” (TTFM) Partners in Learning Parent Survey. The Partners in Learning Parent Survey allows parents to provide feedback in an anonymous way. The username and password below are unique to Gary Allan High School and will be required to access the questionnaire.

Successful schools foster greater communication with parents, encourage parental involvement in their child’s schoolwork, and engage parents in school activities and governance. The Partners in Learning Parent Survey survey is a comprehensive questionnaire covering asking your views on your child’s experiences at school and at home. The survey also provides feedback to schools about the extent to which parents feel Gary Allan High School supports learning, positive behaviour, and promotes a safe and inclusive environment.

The questionnaire can be accessed at www.tellthemfromme.com. This is a secure site operated by The Learning Bar Inc., a reputable survey partner. Once you access the secure web site above, you will see a box asking you for your username and password.

The username and password for parents/guardians of students at Gary Allan High School is:

Username: gary500

Password: parent5b


Please note: Responses are accepted until May 13, 2016. The questionnaire will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete. You will need to complete the survey in one continuous session. Open-ended comments at the end of the survey need to be submitted within 15 minutes of the start of that item response. If you have any questions about the survey please contact Frank Nezavdal, Department of Research and Accountability, 905-335- 3663 ext. 3381 or by e-mail: nezavdalf@hdsb.ca.
