Board Meeting Highlights | June 4, 2019

June 5, 2019
Student voice was once again front and centre at the Louis Riel School Board public meeting on Tuesday June 4th. In its inaugural year, the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) Show Choir is proving that hard work and dedication can produce an audience pleasing performance. Led by Ingrid Pederson and Pamela Martinson, this group of Grade 9 to 12 students from across the division combined a love of choral singing and dance in an impressive and entertaining performance for board members and senior leadership.   

Members of the LRSD Indigenous Youth Leadership group also made a presentation to the board.  Following a trip to Haida Gwaii in early May, these seven young leaders shared an experience several described as life changing. Words such as connectednessrespectautonomy and self-determination were used to paint a picture of courage, exploration, and friendship. The board wishes Cheyenne, Mia, Kelsey, Tieller, Brianna, Tameika, and Random continued success as learners and leaders. They are each proving they are more than capable of being strong Indigenous voices. 

Our standing committees presented their final reports for receipt and recording, allowing for some reflection on work done over the last year. As done annually, and guided by the Public Schools Act, LRSD has renewed shared service agreements to provide clinician and practical arts services to a number of independent schools situated in the LRSD community. The board approved the appointment of two current LRSD principals to the newly created positions of Divisional Learning Support Team Principals, and gave third and final reading to seven policies. Two policies, IHAH-1 and IHAH-2, are significant in that they both highlight a commitment to additional language acquisition for LRSD students.   

With May 31st being the final date for submissions to the Manitoba Commission review on K-12 Education, the board recognized the 19 individuals who contributed to the written submission from LRSD that also contained the history of our school division and our legacy of leadership and learning.    

Our final agenda item was to establish an ad-hoc evaluation process review committee with thanks to Trustees Johnston, Parker and Vadeboncoeurwho will serve as committee members. 

Tuesday June 18th is the final public meeting of the Louis Riel School Board for the 2019-2020 school year.  All are welcome to attend.

- Sandy Nemeth, Chair of the Board
