School Development Surveys

School Development Survey Launch
The provincial government has launched the annual school development surveys of students, parents/guardians, and staff. The data from these surveys will be used by our school to create our school development plan. Please complete the family survey by Friday, March 13th so we have representation from all of our families. A memo and email has been sent out with more information. The survey link is on the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s website.
