Board meeting highlights; March 5th, 2019

March 21, 2019
​The diverse voices of our community joined us at our public board meeting on March 5th, by way of delegations and requests for information and support.  We appreciated the opportunity for a broad dialogue on the increasing transportation needs facing our growing school division. Delegates from the Newcomers Education Coalition and Winnipeg Indigenous Executive Circle made requests for information and data, as they work collaboratively to establish a baseline understanding of our schools in LRSD to inform future policy recommendations for the greater Winnipeg community.

In what is being described as 'historic', the recent collaboration between educators from LRSD and St. Theresa Point, MB continues to inform and guide conversations as we work toward reconciliation, success for our youth, and engagement with our northern First Nations communities.  Student voice as the driving force behind this event continues to inspire, and we were again reminded to consider and value the voices of our young people. 

Along with regular committee updates and policy work, we continue to lay the groundwork for a submission to the Manitoba Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education.  With the formal adoption of our budget scheduled to take place on March 12th, we will then turn our focus to engaging with the commission. All the while, we continue to invest time and conversation in developing new Vision, Mission and Values statements for LRSD.  We look forward to sharing them with you soon. 

Our next public meeting is Tuesday March 19th.  All are welcome starting at 6:30 pm.

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
