CCRSB Wants to Hear from You!

Get ready to share your thoughts!

CCRSB is starting a school-board wide survey today to talk to parents and guardians, staff and community partners about how things are going now and what we can, as a school board, do to make things better for students in the future.

The survey is only three questions and can be finished in five to 10 minutes. Your voice is really important, so it would be great if you could take a moment to answer the questions and share your thoughts!

You should have received an email from the Superintendent of Schools, Gary Adams, explaining the process a little more. You should have also received an invitation from PDHS inviting you to join in. Click on the link in that email and you are ready to participate!

The thoughts you share will be used to help prepare for CCRSB’s next strategic plan and to provide some more insight into how our school is doing.

If you have any questions, you can send them to
