Have something to say about education? The regional district wants to hear from you

·1 min read

The Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (RDKS) is seeking members of the public to complete a survey about access to education.

As part of the RDKS economic development commission’s strategic plan, the district hired youth researchers to better understand how to increase access to education and develop education facilities.

Now, the regional district is looking for a range of stakeholders to complete the survey, including students, parents, business owners, education providers and the members of the general public.

The survey is voluntary and takes up to 10 minutes to complete. Responses will remain anonymous.

Researchers were hired through WorkBC’s Community Workforce Response Grant: Youth Community Partnership to complete the project. The grant was created so “communities can provide youth with opportunities to contribute to their community while gaining work-related skills and experience for future job opportunities or their return to school.”

The survey can be accessed HERE.

Any questions should be addressed to Maggie Hall, RDKS economic development officer at mhall@rdks.bc.ca.
