The New Westminster school district wants to know what’s important to the community to help inform its five-year strategic plan.
The five-year strategic plan will chart a course for the district through to 2024.
Folks can go online and share their thoughts through ThoughtExchange, an online consultation service the district subscribed to earlier this year, or they can drop by the final, in-person dialogue session on Monday, April 29 at Queensborough Middle School (it’s on from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and childminding will be available).
Issues to be addressed include planning for future schools and facilities, technology and how it supports teaching and learning, personalized learning that engages all learners and community partnerships, according to a press release.
The community is also asked to think about what it wants to see more of – or less of – in the school district and what it would like to see done differently.
“Let’s go above and beyond for our students,” says board vice-chair Anita Ansari in a video about the consultation.
Online consultation closes on April 30.
