In October of 2011 the Transportation Community Consultation Plan was approved by the Board of Trustees to outline the process in which Grande Yellowhead will engage with their internal and external stakeholders regarding their current needs, or transportation concerns. The core belief of the Board of Trustees is that all concerns will be reviewed in the best interests of our students with regards to the impact on their education.
Context of the Plan:
The Consultation Plan has been developed with consideration given to “what we heard” from stakeholders.In reviewing the data and identifying needs and concerns, we were able to focus on the Action Plan and begin preparing the way for a smooth transition when growth and change do occur. The Action Plan is driven by the three goals of the Board.
• Encourage community engagement by providing opportunities to involve all applicable stakeholders in transportation;
• Keep all interested parties well-informed in advance of all upcoming changes in the area of transportation that may affect or change their child’s current route or ridership time; and,
• Provide details of specific communication tools or strategies in multiple ways including the use of local media and the division’s website.
We will continue to build and add to the plan as new concerns or recommendations are presented. To date we have received input and support from internal stakeholders and created processes that will become the foundation of our operation. Communication methods and project tools are primed in anticipation of communicating the Division’s progress and goals to all stakeholders involved.
We appreciate your feedback. All enquiries will be respnded to within three business days.
