Online Budget Consultations
Dear parents and guardians,
Each year, as part of our district’s annual budget process, the Surrey Board of Education seeks community input on budget priorities for the next school year via an online survey.
This survey is available in English, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Hindi, Punjabi, Spanish and Tagalog.
All staff, students, parents/guardians and members of the Surrey, White Rock and Barnston Island communities are encouraged to take part in this survey and share priority areas for the 2023-24 district budget. Participants can share their feedback via an online survey, or reach out to us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), traditional mail or your local Parent Advisory Council representative.
The survey will run until end of day, February 28, 2023.
It is important to remember that 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.
We hope you can participate in this consultation and share the priority areas that are important to you and your family.
