Do you know that the way our children will be educated is changing?  The Ministry of Education has changed the curriculum for education in BC.  Do you know how this will impact your child, as a student in SD62?  Do you want to learn more about it?

SPEAC (Sooke Parents’ Education Advisory Council) is working with SD62 to host a community conversation where parents can learn more about how the new curriculum will be implemented in the district and what this means for students, parents, and teachers.  The tentative date and time is March 2, 2016 at 7 p.m.

To ensure your topics of interest, questions, and concerns are addressed, SPEAC has developed a survey.  There are 2 questions, followed by your top 3 topics of interest, and an opportunity to write any additional comments.  We respectfully request you complete the survey ASAP by February 16 in order to prepare for the March 2 meeting.

Please complete our survey
