In March 2022, we invited you to Have Your Say as we plan for the future of the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB).

Having Your Say

Families, community members and staff provided their feedback using these methods:

  • A written online survey
  • Consultations with school communities and community partners

Students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 were invited to share their experiences and visions for school using three methods:

  • A written online survey for students in Grades 4 to 12
  • A Postcard to the Future activity for students in Grade 7 to 12
  • A Draw Your Ideal School Day activity for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6

What We Heard

We are pleased to share that more than 10,000 students, community members and staff shared their thoughts, ideas and hopes for the future. More than 5,000 of these were students. It demonstrates how eager students are to play an active role in shaping their educational experience, and that of their peers.

We took this feedback and used it to build the Strategic Plan. The voices of those we serve helped us to assemble the seven skills and attributes of the Learner Profile and six Strategic Directions to help take our school board into the 22nd century. Read more about them:
