Message from the Board Chair

The 2019/2020 school year offered a number of challenges to school authorities throughout the province, yet despite a stalled economy and a global pandemic that led to the closure of schools to our students in March, our board maintained a focus on students and their learning. The current results reflect the efforts and commitment of Division staff to support all students. In particular, we are most proud of the daily work staff carry out in support of the development of the whole person.

The Board strives to work collaboratively with our communities and staff to provide each student with the opportunity to fulfill their potential and pursue their dreams. Through a variety of community engagement events, the Board shares information and invites feedback to help inform Board decision making for how it can better meet the needs of the students we serve. The Board continues to pursue positive relationships with MLAs and locally elected officials to support issues specific to rural schools. We also connect with other districts to address common challenges and leverage opportunities to advance the learning agenda.

All of the Division’s strategic plans and goals align with three major areas of priority: student learning, teaching and leadership excellence, and community engagement. As elected officials, it is the Board’s responsibility
to ensure that these priorities are reflected when determining policies, advocating for our communities, and maintaining standards of excellence in public education.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I would like to recognize our staff and school communities for their continued dedication to providing an exemplary education for all students.
