MDI School District & Community Reports for 2018/19 now available

On behalf of Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl and the Human Early Learning Partnership, we are excited to announce MDI School District & Community Reports for 2018/19 are now online. These reports provide a comprehensive overview of MDI results for participating school districts in BC, and profiles and maps for each neighbourhood in participating districts. 

2018/19 MDI Data Trends
In 2018/19, MDI data collection was moved from November to January/February in response to requests from MDI school districts, and this may have had an influence on a range of MDI measures. Improvements were also made to our online data capture and reporting system, and the ‘Number of Important Adults at School’ question appeared differently as compared to previous years. We strongly recommend you read our MDI Data Trends Summary 2018/19 for more information as you interpret your MDI data this year. Dr. Kimberly Schonert-Reichl also highlighted 2018/19 MDI data trends in a recent webinar, Preparing for Your 2018-19 MDI School District Reports. The webinar recording can be viewed HERE

MDI Resources: Moving From Data to Action
We encourage you to explore the various supports and tools in our companion resource, ‘Discover MDI: A Field Guide to Promoting Well-Being in Middle Childhood – a companion to your MDI data’. This online resource provides a supported, step-by-step journey that will help you gain familiarity with the questions and components that are assessed on the MDI, make sense of your MDI data, and guide your approaches to building dialogue and action within schools and communities.

Kim and the MDI Team would like to extend its warmest appreciation to the students, teachers, and administrators who made this project possible. Thank you. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any support with your MDI Reports. We always welcome and appreciate hearing about your experiences with our reports and resources.
