SMS, along with
several other Middle Schools in Kelowna, has been asked to assist the
University of British Columbia's Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP).
Our School District is participating in the Middle Years Development
Instrument (MDI) project for all Grade 7 students in January/February 2019. The
MDI is a questionnaire that asks children about their thoughts, feelings, and
experiences inside and outside of school. It is not a test for reading, writing
or math. Students fill out the MDI online, during class time. Surveys are sent
to a secure lab at the University of British Columbia. Reports and maps are
produced to help families, schools and communities understand what the students
have shared. This year's cohort of Grade 7 students also completed the survey when
they were in Grade 4.
Below is the information letter from the lead researcher, Dr. Kim Schonert-Reichl. You will also be receiving a paper copy of this letter on Monday, December 3. Detailed information about the purpose of the survey can be found in the letter. Please read through the letter and contact Dr. Schonert-Reichl (contact info is in the letter) with any questions. If you would like to opt your grade 7 child out of this survey, please sign and return the last page of the letter to the school no later than December 21, 2018.MDI Parent Information Letter 2018.pdf
