SASKATOON – The provincial government launched the Student First online engagement tool on Friday to assist in collecting feedback on the Saskatchewan education sector.

The website is available to the public, allowing students, parents and teachers the opportunity to provide written submissions and take part in surveys.

Over the past three months, Student First advisors Russ Mirasty and Patricia Prowse have been travelling across the province collecting input.

To date, they have taken part in 54 engagement forums in 16 Saskatchewan communities and will continue these over the coming months.

“This online engagement tool will ensure they have the ability to hear from even more people,” said Don Morgan, Saskatchewan’s education minister.

Engagements, both in-person and online, focus on what’s going well, what’s not and how the province’s education sector can help students succeed.

The need for additional teacher supports, technology and professional development have been raised already.
