SD60 will be participating in Wave 7 of the Early Development Instrument (EDI) Project during the 2016/2017 school year, Year 1 of a three year data collection across BC. The EDI identifies areas where children are doing well or are experiencing challenges, and provides information of child health and well-being across BC. This project is funded by the Ministries of Children and Family Development, Education and Health, and the research findings help schools, program planners and community members create environments that help children and families thrive.
Please see the attached letter for more information.
