Response to the Ministry Reviewers Report

Today, the Ministry of Education provided directions to the Board and made public the report from the Ministry reviewers.
As we have just received the full report and the directions from the Minister of Education ourselves, it is important we review both thoroughly. As we assess the report, its recommendations, and the Minister’s directions we will endeavour to be as open and transparent as possible through the implementation process.
We have welcomed the efforts of the Ministry of Education and the Ministry reviewers to assist us in identifying and addressing these areas of concern. During the review, staff members cooperated fully and accommodated all requests from the reviewers. We acknowledge that there are areas for improvement within the Board. The concerns parents, community and staff members raised through the review are very important to us.

As we work through the Minister’s directions and report recommendations, it’s important that we continue the work we do each and every day in focusing on our top priority, which is advancing student achievement and well-being. As one of the province’s top performing school boards, we know our students and communities have high expectations of us - we do too. We remain committed to providing safe, welcoming and inclusive learning environments for our students and staff members to succeed. I’m confident that in working through the recommendations and directions, we will improve public confidence in our Board.
