The Board of Education for the Cowichan Valley School District has launched their annual budget survey and is hoping the public will help guide the budget process by sharing their thoughts.
This year’s survey focuses on ‘Beyond Education’, the Cowichan Valley School District’s Strategic Plan, and asks for the public’s guidance on budgeting for the path forward. In addition to asking for feedback in these areas, the Board is reporting back to the community on the advances made as a result of last year’s responses.
“The School District’s budget is the financial plan that resources our schools and allows us to deliver programs that helps prepare our learners for a world they will create. This year is so much different than those before as we are contending with the realities of a year-long worldwide pandemic,” said Candace Spilsbury, Chair of the Board of Education for the Cowichan Valley School District. “We are asking for your feedback as community engagement around our budget is a key aspect of determining where we put our resources.”
The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LNNPJQY and can also be found on the Cowichan Valley School District’s Facebook, Twitter accounts. If you do not have access to a computer, hard copy surveys can be printed for you at your school. Survey responses will be collected until Tuesday, April 20, 2021.
