We Want Feedback from Our Community – Multi-Year Strategic Plan Monitoring Survey

In September, 2016, the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) launched a new multi-year plan. Each year, the Director of Education reports back to the Board of Trustees on the specific steps undertaken across our school system that align with the goals established in our strategic plan. 

Focus on Our Students: Strategic Plan 2016-2021, provides direction that guides the decisions and actions that shape us as a school board – who we are, what we do, and why we do it.

As the fourth year of our multi-year strategic plan comes to an end, we are gathering feedback from the HCDSB community to monitor our efforts this past year.

Submit Your Feedback!

An invitation to submit feedback has been sent through email to parents, staff and secondary students in the HCDSB community. Check your email for the link to the survey!

This survey will remain open until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 26, 2020.

All of the feedback gathered will be shared with our Board of Trustees at a future meeting. Please note that all information collected will remain anonymous; no individual names will be shared.​
