School Catchment Consultation

Comox Valley Schools is facing enrollment pressures at some schools as a result of the 2017 Supreme Court Ruling as well as due to increasing enrollment patterns. This has resulted in a number of schools being at or above capacity in terms of enrollment. However, we also have a few schools that have space available.
 
Four pre-consultations were held over the four evenings. Excellent discussion ensued at the meetings with many ideas being exchanged as to what should be included in the fall consultation process. The fall consultations will be developed over the coming months and include the information that attendees identified as important for the consultation process.
 
After completing the four successful community meetings on enrollment pressures earlier in May, the Board of Education invited the public  to continue in the conversation. A survey was designed to capture input from parents, families, students, and the community regarding catchment boundaries. Results have been compiled and will help the Board shape the catchment consultation process coming in fall 2019.
 
Although the survey is no longer active, you can still have your say. Email your input and ideas to communications@sd71.bc.ca. Submissions will be accepted until August 31st.
