Open letter to the Minister of Education
On August 25, 2020, Surrey DPAC sent an open letter to Minister of Education Rob Fleming. This letter was supported by the results of our parent survey, which are available below.
The survey went live on Friday August 21, 2020 at 1:30 pm and closed Monday August 24, 2020 at 3:00 pm. Within that timeframe, Surrey DPAC collected 3,452 responses from our families, indicating that the parents of Surrey are in desperate need of more options for returning to school this September.
