SD72 has partnered with the Human Early Learning Partnership at the University of British Columbia to measure the social and emotional development, health, and well-being for children ages 9 to 12 through the Middle Year Development Instrument (MDI).
The MDI is a survey that asks grade 4 and grade 7 students about their thoughts, feelings and experiences in the school, home and community. The questions align with the BC curriculum and grade 4 and 7 students will be invited to complete the MDI during class time between January 15 and February 21.
Students will be told that they can choose to complete the survey, can skip questions and can stop at any time.

There is also a parent FAQ document at: http://earlylearning.ubc.ca/mdi/parent-guardian-resources/
If you do not want your child to participate, contact your child's teacher, fill out and return the withdrawal form at the end of the consent letter sent home from the school, or contact the MDI project staff at email@example.com
