Our Board of Education is committed to liaising with Catholic school community councils (CSCCs). It meets with council representatives at two large group meetings each year - one in fall, one in spring. Topics have included:
Faith Development - A presentation on "I Believe Because . . ." was made by diocesan personnel. Participants were given the opportunity to reflect and share their own faith stories.
Learning - Board priorities were shared with CSCC representatives and the priority to improve outcomes for First Nations and Métis students was the focus of discussion. CSCCs were challenged to support school Learning Improvement Plans around a goal in this priority area, based on the needs of their school community.
In order to provide greater opportunity to liaise, trustees committed to attending a council meeting during the 2014-2015 school year.
