Quick Launch

Engaging Parents in the Healthy Schools Movement

The health unit wants to know more about opinions of parent involvement in schools and its impacts on student learning. We are reaching out to community members and the organizations we work with for ideas and input that will help make Northwestern Ontario communities healthier.

There are a couple ways you can offer input and/or ideas:

  • Online survey – complete the short ‘Parent engagement’ online survey. The survey is open to all community members and health unit community partners. It can also be filled out in any of our offices. If you need help, please ask a staff member to complete the survey with you. Click here if you would like to complete the online survey in French.
  • Talk Public Health: NWHU Online Discussion Panel – join our online discussion panel and tell us what you would like to see in Northwestern Ontario. The March online discussion panel will focus on the topic of parent engagement in schools. The panel will run March 21st to April 4th. Please register by March 19th to be a part of the upcoming panel.
The information we collect through the survey and the online discussion panel will be used to develop a resource that will help school councils and parent involvement committees to engage parents in creating healthy schools in the future.

For more information please contact your local health unit office.
