The Board of Education for the Cowichan Valley School District has started the community feedback process for developing the school calendars for the next three years.
The Board of Education must make a proposed school calendar available for public feedback at least one month prior to submitting the calendar to the ministry. These calendars guide the operation of each school within the district.
The district is now in the last year of the previously approved three-year calendar and the board is proposing a new three-year school calendar for the 2021-2024 school years.
“School calendars guide our overall planning for each school year and are incredibly important documents,” said Candace Spilsbury, Board of Education chair. “We always appreciate community feedback into these processes and I encourage you to have your voice heard through our survey.”
All of the proposed calendars, a summary of important dates, a community survey and frequently asked questions can be found on the district’s website at www.sd79.bc.ca/calendarsurvey.
The survey is open for feedback until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, March 1, 2021. The board will be finalizing the three-year calendar on March 2, 2021.
