Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 4 Students at Conrad Elementary,
School District 52 has partnered with the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) at UBC to invite students to take part in completing the Middle Years Development Instrument (MDI). The MDI is a self-report questionnaire that asks children in Grades 4 to 8 about their thoughts, feelings and experiences in school and in the community. The survey questions align with the BC Ministry of Education’s K-12 curriculum which includes a focus on promoting children’s personal and social competencies. The questionnaire will be administered between January 11 th and February 28th, 2022.
Please see the attached informed passive consent letter for more information about your child’s participation in the MDI. Please complete the form attached to the parent letter if you DO NOT wish your child to participate, or contact the project staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. The MDI is voluntary; your child can choose whether they would like to complete the questionnaire.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at the school at (250) 624-4935 or email me at email@example.com.
We wish you and your families and happy holiday and look forward to seeing your children back in 2022!
Principal, Conrad Elementary School
