Continuing to seek input on district calendar!
School District No. 83 is continuing to seek parent and community input on the district calendar for 2018-19. Please review the calendar and then provide your feedback by clicking on this survey link.
At the board meeting on March 13, Official Trustee Mike McKay approved the calendar, which was the same as the draft form except for a change on January 28. This date was to be a semester turnaround day, however the decision was made to take it off the district calendar and have it determined by the secondary schools (which are the only ones affected) at a later date.
Mindful of the March 30th deadline to have the calendar to the ministry, McKay noted that although the full 30 days of consultation are not quite over, he didn’t feel an extra-ordinary meeting needed to be called. “I will pass it tonight. We have the ability to make adjustments if necessary but the ‘big bits’ of the calendar won’t change.”
Please note that on the survey your first and last name will be required in order to have your comments included in the official discussion. This information will be collected and shared in summary form with our Official Trustee.
