The Department of Education Wants to Hear From You!

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development is developing a provincial student attendance policy. They are asking for input through an online survey from teachers, parents, students, administrators and employers about key issues and ideas to help improve overall attendance. The survey can be found at . Responses will be accepted until July 8. Based on that information, the department will develop a new policy that will be implemented in the fall. Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback.
