April 19, 2018 Bus Update

Please note that the latest information from DriveBC indicates that Highway 3A will be open to single lane traffic at some point later this evening (Wednesday).  As a result, buses will run tomorrow as per regular schedules.  Please anticipate delays, however, as a result of single, alternating traffic; pickup and drop times may be affected, but we cannot predict by how much time.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Greetings to School District No. 20 (Kootenay-Columbia) families:


The Student Learning Survey, formerly the Satisfaction Survey, has been administered annually in BC public schools since 2001. It is the only source of province wide information on in-school process and the learning environment.


In addition to providing planning data for districts and schools, the survey has been used by the Representative for Children and Youth to report on the wellbeing of youth in BC, by the Ministry of Health to support healthy schools initiatives, and by other organizations.


The Student Learning Survey is for students in grade 4, 7, 10, and 12, their parents, and staff. Parents may access the survey by Direct Access from the website listed below. Surveys are to be completed by parents with children in Grades 4, 7, 10, and 12. A parent may complete a survey for each child in the targeted grades. Parents can complete surveys on their own time.


This survey is voluntary. You do not have to answer any of the questions. Your responses are protected under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. They will remain confidential (private), and the results will be used only in unidentifiable forms to improve educational program delivery. During the survey development, students also identified certain topics as being particularly sensitive. For this reason, responses to these questions will be anonymous – your answer for anonymous questions will not be linked to your name in any way.


We encourage you to answer as many questions as you can because you will be helping to improve education for all BC students. Also, for everything but the anonymous questions, you will get your own answers back – so the more information you have provided, the more useful your answers will be for you personally.


Electronic surveying is available until April 27, 2018.  The website to access the electronic survey is:


Please use the “Direct Access – no logon number required”, select the School District from the pull-down and then select the School.


Thank you!
