Grade 10-12 Student Survey re: COVID-19 Impacts on Learning

 

The Ministry of Education wants to hear from grade 10-12 students about the impact of COVID-19 on their learning. This survey will be emailed to all B.C. Secondary Schools to be distributed to their grade 10-12 student and parent contact lists this week, and will be open throughout July.

Students are asked to complete this survey only once.   A. Willock Information Systems (AWIS) is an authorized service provider and a trusted contractor distributing this survey on behalf of the Ministry of Education.

The purpose of this survey is to help our schools and the Ministry of Education better understand the effects of the suspension of in-class instruction due to COVID-19 on their learning.  This survey is voluntary, and a response is encouraged, not required.  Please do not provide any third-party information (e.g., talk about others) in your responses to the survey.  Students are welcome to pass the survey link on to other grade 10–12 BC public and independent school students for their individual use.  If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Olsen at Jessica.Olsen@gov.bc.ca.

CMSD82 Board of Education News Release, Janet Meyer Appointed Superintendent of Schools

 

CMSD82 Board of Education News Release – Janet Meyer Appointed Superintendent of Schools

 

The Board of Education is pleased to announce that Janet Meyer has accepted the Board’s offer to assume the position of Superintendent of Schools on a permanent basis. Janet has been performing that role as Acting Superintendent since June 2019. Janet succeeds Katherine McIntosh, who is seconded to the Ministry of Education, and who will not be returning as Superintendent when that secondment ends.

Janet’s appointment as Superintendent is the culmination of a long and varied career with School District 82, having worked in this District as a Teacher, a Principal, a Director of Instruction and Director of Human Resources before taking on the role of Acting Superintendent of Schools.

When Janet was appointed Acting Superintendent, the Board recognized her as a widely respected effective leader, team builder and committed educator. Throughout her career, Janet has demonstrated her passion for education, and a “children first” approach to her work. She has demonstrated her skills over the last year, as she helps the Board navigate through and implement actions recommended within the Independent Consultant’s Report and works to strengthen ties with partner groups and the community. Janet has worked tirelessly as we deal with COVID-19 and ensuring our school district provides a safe learning and working environment for our students and staff.

Janet holds a Bachelor of Education (Elementary) from the University of Victoria and a Master of Education in Leadership Studies from the University of Victoria with a focus on Indigenous Parent Participation in Schools.

The Board of Education extends congratulations to Janet on her appointment as Superintendent of Schools.
