Message from the Board Chair

As we wrap up the 2016-17 school year, I want to thank you all - families, students, staff and community members - for helping us to end the year on a positive note.
 
I am pleased to welcome Cynthia Cordova who was elected Trustee for Georgina in the recent by-election. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. We look forward to officially welcoming her at our next Board meeting on July 10, and to working with her as we move into the 2017-18 school year.
 
Our Board of Trustees remains committed to implementing the Minister’s directions and will continue moving forward with this work through the summer. This will include establishing the Human Rights Office and the Office of the Integrity Commissioner.
 
We will also begin the process for hiring a Director of Education. I want to thank everyone who shared their feedback on the Director of Education Selection and Performance Appraisal Policies and Procedures.
 
The recruitment process will include community consultation. We will be sharing information over the summer and I encourage you to share your voice. We take this responsibility very seriously and want to ensure community input is reflected in the process.
 
As I mentioned, we are ending the year on a positive note.
 
This week, trustees have been attending graduation ceremonies. It is such an exciting moment to watch our students celebrate their hard work and the completion of their elementary and secondary school years. This year, we also celebrated the first graduating class from the iGrad program we developed in partnership with 360°kids.
 
Congratulations to the graduating classes of 2017, and all the very best for the future. I know you will continue to make us all proud.
 
This week, we have also had the chance to celebrate:
These are just a few of the achievements and milestones being recognized across the Board this week. It is so wonderful to finish the year with so many things to celebrate.
 
As we enter the summer months, I encourage you to keep seeking opportunities to continue learning over the summer months.
 
Thank you again for all that you do to help us build strong and inclusive learning communities, and I hope you all have a wonderful summer.

Sincerely,

 

Loralea Carruthers
Board Chair
