School district asks for public feedback

The Chilliwack school district is building a new strategic plan, and is inviting the public to take part in the process.

The school district is building a new strategic plan, and is inviting the public to take part in the process.

They’ve held focus group meetings over the past few months with organizations connected to the Chilliwack School District, and now have launched an online community survey. In the survey, they ask a few key questions about how well schools are doing and what could be improved. While some of the questions are multiple choice, others offer a chance for more thought-out feedback.

For example: “What are some creative examples of things that could be done differently and would improve how we support student learning in our schools?”

The survey only takes a few minutes and will be used to help the Board of Education and Strategic Planning Steering Committee in its development of a three-to-five year renewed strategic plan.

It is open to everyone, whether they are students, parents, staff, or the general public.

The survey will be available into January 2015. After that, the district will host community forums in February and March. The feedback collected in the survey will be made available at that point. To take part in the survey, visit  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SD33_Survey .
