Multi-Year Strategic Plan
At the Regular Meeting of the Board on December 17, 2019, trustees approved Bluewater District School Board's new Multi-Year Strategic Plan.  

A review of the Multi-Year Strategic Plan was initiated by trustees in January 2019.  Part of the process included a public survey in the spring of 2019, of which 363 submissions were received.  Feedback was used to draft a revised Multi-Year Strategic Plan for review by the Policy Standing Committee at their June 2019 meeting.  Proposed changes to Board Policy BP 1101-D “Bluewater District School Board Strategic Plan” were then submitted to stakeholder groups and the public for further feedback during the fall of 2019.  

The new Multi-Year Strategic Plan outlined below sets the direction for Bluewater District School Board over the next three to five years.
