Public Consultation

A+ A-

Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board is committed to effective, meaningful consultation with the Hamilton community and to a culture of consultation within and among its constituent groups and/or individuals.

At its heart, consultation is about interactive two-way communication and dialogue. The process is an opportunity for:

  • the Board to inform the public about key issues and their implications, and to be better understood; and
  • the public to have meaningful and substantive opportunities to influence Board decisions.

All public consultations are posted in the chart below for your information and your consultation is earnestly sought. Parents/guardians, caregivers, School Council members, staff, students and members of the community are urged to respond.

You may fill out one of the surveys below through our online survey tool, through ThoughtExchange, or written comments may also be sent by Canada Post to:
