More than 30,000 students, parents, community members and staff took part in the survey that looked at the education and supports provided to students, the culture and environment at schools and safety. Some key highlights noted:
“It’s important to our trustees that our schools are inclusive, welcoming and safe environments, so we are pleased to see results that reflect this,” said Board Chair Michelle Draper.
“We are also proud of the excellent education we provide our students and it’s gratifying to see students, families and community members are equally pleased with the great work happening inside our schools.”
Schools for mature communities in Westlawn, Britannia and Rosslyn were prioritized in our District’s 2018-2021 Capital Plan. Further engagement and feedback will be sought in the Britannia and Rosslyn areas, while the Board approved the Westlawn community’s preferred school concept choice, which would see a K-3 school at the Afton site for 400-500 students and a Grades 4-9 school at the Westlawn site for 500-650 students.
The next regularly scheduled Board meeting will be held in November, after the municipal election. A brief organizational Board meeting, where the chair and vice-chair will be chosen, will take place in late October.
