The Surrey Board of Education is holding its first board meeting of the school year this week, marking the return to in-person attendance, with some changes to protect the health and safety of our community.

This Wednesday's meeting (Sept. 15) will offer limited seating to ensure adequate spacing for members of the public who wish to attend. Advanced registration is required by emailing the Secretary-Treasurer's Office at SECT-Office@surreyschools.ca with your name and phone number.

"It is exciting to finally connect in-person with members of our school communities again," said Laurie Larsen, chair of the Surrey Board of Education. "All of the trustees are looking forward to safely hosting public board meetings at the District Education Centre again as life in the district, in Surrey and White Rock, and throughout B.C. starts to look more like it did before the pandemic."

Attendees must follow district health and safety protocols, and are required to wear a mask at all times when inside the District Education Centre (DEC). This includes common areas such as lobbies and waiting areas, hallways, stairwells, elevators and washrooms.

Hand sanitizer will be provided and there will be directional arrows for entering and exiting conference room 2020.

Board meetings will continue to be livestreamed, recorded and published online so they are still accessible remotely for those who are unable to attend in person or wish to participate virtually.

Members of the public may pose a question to the board by completing the Questions to the Board form and emailing the Secretary-Treasurer's Office at SECT-Office@surreyschools.ca. A response will be sent to you directly.
