There is a growing evidence base that supports the position that board-governed school districts contribute to successful public education systems.
Sheppard, Galway, Brown & Wiens. (2012, p.1)
Governance matters. Every four years Manitobans have an opportunity to exercise their rights by electing school board trustees. The next general school board election will be held in Fall 2018.
There is strong evidence that board-governed school divisions continue to develop successful students in fiscally responsible ways.
School boards are successful because they can negotiate the challenges of balancing various community perspectives and the demands of government mandates. It is because of elected school boards in Manitoba that LRSD has been able to establish unique programming that meets the interests of the local community.
The LRSD School Board is responsible to the greater community. It is under their governance that LRSD is driven to develop caring, literate and capable young people who are engaged in their learning. Young people who take advantage of all that is available in our society, while pursuing the common good.
The LRSD Board is always working to continue growing our connections with the community, and we have seen increasingly positive response in community engagement over recent years. From our Parent and Community networking night, to Parent Consultation events, we are always looking forward with the plan to actively work in collaborative harmony with the community around us.
