The Cowichan Valley School District wants input as it builds the next three-year school calendar.

The Cowichan Valley School District wants input as it builds the next three-year school calendar.

Now in the final year of the last three-year calendar, it’s time for the Cowichan Valley School District’s board of education to develop the calendar that will direct school operations for the next three years. To make it happen, though, they want community help.

In a release sent by the school district it states 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 education ministry.

“School calendars guide our overall planning for each school year and are incredibly important documents,” said board of education chair Candace Spilsbury. “We always appreciate community feedback into these processes and I encourage you to have your voice heard through our survey.”

The new calendar will guide the operation of each school within the district for the 2021-2024 school years.

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. The board will be finalizing the three-year calendar on March 2.
