Board Meeting Highlights - May 7, 2019

May 9, 2019
​At the public meeting of the Louis Riel School Board on May 7th motions were passed to place several new administrators in LRSD schools as of August 1st, 2019. It is the responsibility of the board to ensure caring, confident and capable leaders are in our schools, who support learning and growth for students, staff, and teachers. We invest considerable time in conversation with our senior administration allowing for the utmost confidence in the resulting decisions.

Youth advocacy and activism was prominent at our meeting. Brynn and Maysam from École St. Germain brought a passionate plea for support with the climate change initiatives their school Environment Club is invested in. Representing LRSD, Jillian and Adel from Dakota Collegiate, and Mariah from Collège Jeanne-Sauvé, recently attended The GSA National Conference in Edmonton, which saw students from high schools across Canada gather to discuss gender based violence, issues in the LGBTQ2S+ community, and the role of youth in working to achieve social justice. As a school board we welcome student delegations to our meetings and always find their messages important and valuable. Each of these students demonstrated bold thinking supported by lived experiences, a desire to affect change, and genuine confidence in answering the many questions posed by trustees. The entire room was impacted by their messages. We are very proud of these students.

It was also a real pleasure to welcome Geraldine Mercredi to our meeting. Kookum Geraldine is a valued and influential connector in both the Victor Mager School Community and at the René Deleurme Centre. Her broad-based insights were much appreciated by the school board and senior administration.

Important to the work of your school board is the student performance data that informs much of our decision making. We are now supported by Power BI, which will enhance our ability to access this data in real time and respond quickly with necessary conversations.

By board motion, we formalized a partnership with the Winnipeg Foundation that will guarantee the long-term viability of our LRSD foundation, Riel-Evate. It was also delightful to see photos that showed hundreds of grandparents in our schools as part of Seniors' Day on April 24th. 

With the public engagement portion of the review of K-12 public education in Manitoba wrapping up on May 31st, we encourage everyone to take advantage of opportunities to share your ideas, thoughts and perspectives. Happy spring everyone! it looks like the warm weather may finally have arrived.

- Sandy Nemeth, Chair of the School Board

Meet Randi. She's one of the seven members of the Oyoyocik Student Leadership Group who travelled to an archipelago called Haida Gwaii in BC. They laughed, they learned, they discovered culture and they discovered themselves. Check out the trip blog: http://ow.ly/WLSZ50ubUSr
