More than 950 people register for LRSD's Community Conversation about Bill 64

May 26, 2021

More than 950 people registered for A Conversation about Bill 64: The Education Modernization Act and its Four-Pillar Strategy hosted by the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) Board of Trustees on Tuesday, May 25.

The virtual event included a presentation from five students at Windsor Park Collegiate, perspective from a parent in the division, and a keynote from Dr. John R. Wiens, dean emeritus at the faculty of education at the University of Manitoba.  

"We are so grateful to everyone who offered to share their perspectives. The purpose of the evening was to encourage our community to engage and consider the proposed reforms under Bill 64 and its Better Education Starts Today strategy," said Louise Johnston, Chair of the LRSD Board of Trustees. "The high level of participation showed what we've known to be true for some time: the LRSD community is truly engaged and interested in public education."  

The evening ended with a question-and-answer period. Questions centered around the potential impact the bill and the strategy may have on LRSD and the public education system in general. Participants were encouraged to continue to research the contents of the bill and strategy.  

"We hope this second conversation, in a planned series of evenings, will help each individual in our community come to an informed opinion about what government is describing as a generational change to public education in Manitoba," said Pamela Kolochuk, Vice-Chair of the LRSD Board of Trustees.
