Basinview Drive Community School - Where learning extends beyond the classroom.

Parents please help us improve our school by filling out the Getting to Great survey

Getting to Great allows all parents/guardians, teachers, and students in grades 4-12 to share information that will help us improve our school.  Your voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the strengths and challenges at our school, so we can do our part to enhance the opportunities for students to learn. Your input is valuable in helping us make improvements that will directly impact your child’s learning and school experience.

Please visit the website: select Basinview Drive to start the survey. You are welcome to complete a survey for each of your children attending our school. Please remember, all survey information is anonymous and is not used to evaluate individuals. At the end of the survey, you will find space to make any additional comments you wish to share with us anonymously.

Thank you for your participation; your input is very important to us!

They also offer Wellness Navigation:

Do you know of a person who needs help to find resources?  Are they struggling with health, money, housing or emotional wellness and don’t know where to go?  Perhaps they have concerns about their child’s mood and don’t know what to do next?  You can talk to one of our Wellness Navigators who help people to find resources in the health care system and the community.  The Wellness Navigators are licensed health professionals who work with adults, children, teenagers, parents, women, and families.  They can meet in their offices or at a public location – whichever is better for the person.  Call 902-460-4560 to set up an appointment.

See attached documents for more information. They will be posted on our school’s website and Community Board.
