More About Our Streaming Survey

Broad and diverse community engagement with the work of the Board and the school division is vitally important. The Board encourages students, parents and guardians, employees, and community members to offer their ideas, judgments, concerns and questions about how well the school division is serving the needs of students and contributing to the health, safety, and economic prosperity of our community.

The Board recognizes the opportunity that its meetings provide to engage and receive feedback from stakeholders. Since the pandemic, public participation in Board meetings has increased from fewer than 25 participants per meeting to often more than 1,000. In an effort to build on this growing interest and expand our community outreach, the school division has launched a brief streaming survey. Please take a few moments to help us reach this goal:
