The Government of Saskatchewan is looking for public input into the future of education in the province.
“We want to hear from students, parents, educators, and school staff to better understand what they want for the future of education,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said. “The new provincial education plan will ensure that our schools are on the right path to meet the needs of students as we look toward the next decade.”
The Ministry of Education is leading the co-construction of a framework, together with its education partners, that will form the basis for a provincial education plan and set a course for education beyond 2020, through an engagement process that began in October 2018.
As engagement sessions with education partners occur, school divisions are also creating opportunities for parents and students to participate in-person. The Ministry of Education will also be receiving feedback from Saskatchewan residents through an online survey available at https://www.saskatchewan.ca/government/public-consultations/provincial-education-plan/provide-your-feedback. . Public feedback generated from the survey will be used to help develop the provincial education plan.
The new provincial education plan will build upon the successes of the Education Sector Strategic Plan that was created in 2014 by the Government of Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan’s school divisions, with additional collaboration from other education sector partners.
The online survey is now open, and the public will be able to provide input until May 10.
