Will the HDSB be able to link my responses to my identity?

No, the process is completely anonymous! You do not need to register to participate and the survey(s) do not ask participants for any information concerning their personal identity (e.g., Name, address, etc.). You can provide an email address (optional) to receive a notification when the survey results are available, but it cannot be linked to your survey results.

Only staff within the HDSB Research Department will have access to the anonymous responses. Findings will be reported back in large group format so that no individual or small group of individuals can be identified.

Is this survey different from others I may have completed from the Halton District School Board?

Yes. Some of the questions in the survey(s) cover issues that we have not asked you about previously.

Why should I take the time to do this survey?
