EIPS Parent Survey
In November, the Division invited parents and guardians to participate in an online parent survey. They were asked 15 questions about the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement, and more. Overall, the online parent survey received an impressive 19 per cent response rate, with more than 3,170 responses from parents and guardians across the Division.

Communicating Student Learning
Communicating Student Learning: There are two formal reporting periods, the end of January and the end of June, for all students. Communication with parents/guardians about student achievement will be continuous throughout the year. Communication may include parent/guardian-student-teacher conferences, student-teacher led conferences, phone calls, informal reports and the parent portal. Starting the week of October 13 formative and summative assessments will be posted in the parent portal. Please refer to our website or call the school if you do not know how to access this important tool.
Acorn Fee Management System/School Fees
Elk Island Public Schools uses a fee management system allowing families to view and pay on-line their school fees. All families with students registered in Elk Island Public Schools, are able to login through the parent portal of PowerSchool to access their school and athletic fees.
If you have difficulty creating a new account, an instructional video is available on the parent portal login page at https://powerschool.eips.ca/public or on the division website at http://eips.ca/powerschool. If you have any difficulties after viewing the video, please call the school office for assistance.
