Clearview board in favour of ‘Friends of PAC’ society

Highlights from Oct.31 board of trustee meeting

High on the list of things discussed during the Oct. 31 Clearview Public Schools board meeting on Oct. 31 was the Stettler Performing Arts Centre (PAC).

A meeting had been held on Oct. 25, the minutes of which the board of trustees reviewed. One of the key items coming from the minutes was the support of the creation of a “Friends of the PAC” society.

The new society would have fundraising authority over the facility, as well as ability to apply for government grants for new equipment such as light and sound equipment.

One decision made during the Oct. 25 meeting having an immediate effect on Wm. E. Hay Secondary is that the school will take over the booking of the facility. An orientation document and user guide will be created to help user groups navigate the transition.

Castor AED

After a Castor resident fund-raised for the purchase and installation of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), the board of trustees has allowed to have it installed outside Gus Wetter School.

Clearview will manage the installation of the device and handle annual maintenance on the device.

Budget

Clearview administration is working towards finalizing the 2022-2023 board budget.

The budget will be finalized once the head office receives updated budgets from individual schools.

While the budget will be different than the one approved in the spring, the fall update will closer reflect what is actually happening at the school level with enrolment numbers and teachers’ wages.

According to the meeting highlights, “no school will receive less than anticipated in the spring.”

Additionally, all schools are expected to receive additional funding support for curriculum and technology updates and other strategic initiatives.

Artwork

Clearview’s board of trustees reviewed artwork from 97 Kindergarten to Grade 6 students who entered the bus safety poster competition.

The 2022 theme is “Make the World Green, Ride Yellow.”

Board members selected one poster from each grade to be forwarded to the provincial competition.

Winning entries at the provincial level will receive a $25 gift card and other “benefits for their schools.”

Exchange

The Clearview board of trustees has approved an exchange for Wm. E Hay students to travel to Quebec.

Students will travel to Quebec, and Quebec students will come to Stettler, in the spring of 2023.

Details of the exchange are being handled by Experiences Canada.
