Langley School District wants to hear from parents, students and staff on how well it is communicating.

As School District 35 works to improve the way it communicates with parents, students and staff, it has created a survey for Grade 6-12 students, District staff, and interested members of the community to participate in.

Information gained will help the Board of Education increase understanding of Langley school communities’ information needs, as trustees work to develop the most effective ways of communicating with and hearing from parents, students and staff.

“The diverse ways in which the district communicates are constantly evolving as we strive to meet people’s varied needs and expectations,” said the district’s communications manager Sandy Wakeling.

“Effective communication is a two-way street.  We need to ensure our processes evolve in a way that not only improves the efficiency with which we can deliver information, but also creates an environment of positive engagement that fosters opportunities for dialogue and feedback.”

The survey may be completed online at www.sd35.bc.ca/survey, or picked up at schools and the board office.

The deadline for survey completion is Wednesday, June 27.
