2024-25 Strategic Plan Budget Priorities Survey

As we work through the budget development for the upcoming school year, the Sooke School District is facing the challenge of a budget deficit that demands careful consideration and difficult financial decisions. The Board of Education is working hard to tackle this challenge, making sure every decision fits with the district's strategic plan and is financially responsible.

To hear from the community, the district asked parents, guardians, and the public to take a survey. The survey gathered feedback on budget priorities and strategic goals, helping the district allocate resources effectively. 

For your reference, we have included links to our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan and the 2022-23 Annual Report  which provide important context for our budget discussions.
