The survey is confidential.  The results are not shared with anyone.  The collation of the survey is carried out by an external agency.  This agency is not associated with the DEC. 

The survey measures the parents occupations, education qualifications, Proportion of sole parents in the school community, employment levels of the families and the proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in the school community. It is important that families do not overstate their current circumstances to ensure that schools are in the best situation receive the support needed.

We are aiming for a 100% return rate of these surveys.  We appreciate your support with this.
