Seeking Public Input
The Thames Valley District School Board is committed to building a culture that ensures students, parents, staff and community members feel that they are an integral part of the decision-making process. Throughout the year, input is sought on new and revised Board policies and procedures, the coming Budget, name of new and consolidated schools and accommodation studies. We welcome your input in shaping our policies, programs and special initiatives. The Board also often seeks community representation on various task forces and committees.
To help us ensure that school/community groups are kept informed about consultation opportunities as they arise, we would ask that interested groups provide us with the e-mail address of at least one member. Please forward the contact information to email@example.com.
