Dear Parents,


This fall Waterloo Catholic District School Board will be conducting a Student Census. While the Ministry of Education requires all school districts to conduct this census, we are committed to collecting quality, relevant student demographic data, so we can meet the needs of all our students. You can learn more about the census at


Before we ask your child or children to complete the census, we want to hear from you. We are hosting a series of consultations online. These consultations will give you an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. Please note, we will be hosting a couple of sessions specifically for parents of BIPOC (i.e., Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) students because the census must include questions around Indigeneity, race, and ethnicity. We can imagine parents of BIPOC students may have additional questions and concerns about how we will use the data in a respectful and productive way.
