Every year in February, the district invites staff, students, parents and members of the Surrey, White Rock and Barnston Island communities to learn about the next school year’s budget and provide their feedback.
Participants are able to share their feedback via an online survey, which is available in multiple languages, or, reach out to us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), traditional mail (14033 92 Ave., Surrey, B.C., V3V 0B7) or your local school's Parent Advisory Council (PAC) representative.
While the majority of the district's budget is pre-allocated to operating and capital costs (i.e. school construction, additions, seismic upgrades, teachers, educational assistants, programs/services and supplies), there is some room to address priorities identified by the community. This can include anything from funding scholarships to classroom enhancement funds to new programs and social initiatives.
Surrey Schools is honoured to be in the position to help shape the future of the city's youth, and your valuable input helps us ensure our learning environments truly reflect the diverse communities that we serve.
