Survey: Bishop Filevich Ukrainian Bilingual School Seeks Your Feedback

Deadline: February 19th

After 40 years of Ukrainian bilingual education in Saskatoon and area, we are taking the opportunity to pause and look at the future goals for the program. The goals of the Ukrainian Bilingual Program, developed in 1979, serve as the original goals upon which the program was built.

The Bishop Filevich community desire input that can be used to help set future direction for the program and we need your help. Even if you are not overly familiar with the Ukrainian Bilingual program in Saskatoon, your input is still valuable!

There are 10 questions, and should only take around 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your support of Ukrainian Bilingual education!
