    Why is DPS engaging online feedback?

    Traditional public engagement usually involves attending public meetings or providing written submissions to DPS. This can often be time-consuming, inconvenient, and sometimes intimidating. Engage DPS gives you the opportunity to have your say on issues that are important to. you, at a time and place of your choosing.

    • It's a quick, safe, and convenient way to have your say on a range of issues and topics.
    • It's a great way to keep up to date and contribute your views on issues affecting our school community.
    • You can see what other community members think about a topic, respond with your own views, and engage in a discussion.
