Education System Administrative Review Public Survey

Nova Scotia is undertaking an Education System Administrative Review to improve the education system with the success of students at the centre.

An independent consultant, Dr. Avis Glaze, was hired by the province to review the administrative and governance system that supports our students, schools, teachers, parents, and community. That means looking at the people, processes, and structures in place to make the decisions that impact the classrooms in your community.

Please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire. Your answers will provide valuable information as part of Dr. Glaze’s review. All responses will be submitted directly to Dr. Glaze.

The opportunity to provide feedback will close on Friday, November 3.

Online survey

Fill out our online survey to share your thoughts.
