Comox Valley Schools Strategic Planning Survey

Comox Valley Schools is currently creating a strategic plan for the 2019 – 2023 school years. In our development of a new strategic plan, we review our past strategic plan as well as seek consultation from our education partners and from members of the community (parents/guardians, students and the general public).  This survey is the first part of the consultation process.  The other part of the consultation process will involve community meetings for interested members of the public to participate in.  Registration for a consultation session will be required in order to attend. Please check the district web page for strategic planning community consultation meetings and registration information.
