I would like to thank everyone who responded to the survey, we really appreciate your feedback and are looking at making a few improvements based on the results. We will be doing this survey again at the end of the year to see how we have done. You can see the results of the helpdesk survey here, along with my responses to some of the questions: http://bcsupportonline.com/helpdesk-survey-results/

If you are interested in implementing the new MyEducationBC system, the timeline for implementation is as follows:
- Your school can indicate to the Independent School implementation team your interest in being involved by filling out this form:
- Your school must complete the Memorandum of Understanding from the Ministry, which is the contract between your school and the Ministry for MyEducationBC. (Click here to complete MOU)
