District School Board Ontario North East is looking for your thoughts on how to best support students, parents, families and community partners as it moves into the future.

Trustees and Senior Administration are beginning the journey of developing a new, 3-year Strategic Plan they hope to have in place by September, 2018. The Strategic Plan will act as a roadmap from which informed decisions can be made.

“In the coming weeks, we will be holding public consultations throughout the district,” commented Board Chair, Bob Brush. “We invite all of our stakeholders to attend these important meetings. A survey will also be placed on our website in the coming weeks, at www.dsb1.ca. We’re hoping for some positive and constructive feedback.”

“The formulation of a new Strategic Plan will be a comprehensive process comprising research and consultation with our schools and communities,” adds Director of Education, Lesleigh Dye.

“We will be discussing our long-term goals, priorities, and formulating an updated mission and vision. Input from the public is essential in formulating our overall strategic direction.”

All meetings will run from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  The meeting schedule looks like this:
