Subject: Renewed Mathematics Strategy (RMS)Survey of Educators

The renewed focus on mathematics continues to mobilize efforts to support student achievement, equity and well-being across Ontario.

In the spirit of Collaborative Professionalism, organizations and federations representing educators, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, have developed a survey to learn from the experience of educators responsible for the implementation of the Renewed Mathematics Strategy (RMS), which was launched in September 2016.

This link to the Renewed Math Strategy Survey will be sent to educators next week from organizations and federations representing educators, and will remain open for the month of December. Participation in completing the survey is voluntary and all respondents will remain anonymous.

I am sending this to ask for your help in encouraging survey completion, either by sending the link to all staff or via another mechanism within your board structure. This support would be most appreciated.

The data gathered in the survey will help us learn from the first year of the RMS and allow us to better support educators and students going forward.

Thank you for your ongoing collaboration and commitment to the achievement, equity and well-being of all students.
