Input sought on future of education

The Fraser-Cascade school district is looking for public input on the future of education.

Parents, students, educators, businesses and local politicians are invited to share their ideas as part of the district’s Learning for Tomorrow community forums.

“Right now school districts across the province are engaged in a process to create a new vision for learning in the 21st Century,” said superintendent of schools Dr. Karen Nelson. “As such, School District No. 78 is hoping to consult with as many community partners and stakeholders as possible to help create our own, local response to how we will best serve learners of all ages now and into the future.”

She says the goal is to find new ways of delivering the curriculum in an environment that is increasingly integrated with technology.

Nelson is currently meeting with several student focus groups to get feedback on their school experience. The district has also developed an online student survey, open to students in Grades 6 through 12.

The first forum will take place at Hope Secondary School from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Others will be held April 28 at Agassiz Elementary-Secondary School, and May 5 at Boston Bar Elementary-Secondary School.
