The Clearview board of trustees welcomed the Bashaw Community Wellness Team to their Feb. 23 meeting.
Clearview invited the team so they could learn about the collaborative approach that the community of bashaw has developed and successfully implemented.
The Bashaw Community Wellness Team has members from the Bashaw RCMP, Bashaw School, Adult Learning and the community’s social programs involved.
According to the Clearview meeting highlights notes, every dollar that is spent on the project nets the community at least $10 in benifits including reduced staff burnout, decreased youth crime, and gains in literacy.
The notes also indicate that a similiar group has begun meeting in Stettler, and the Clearview board has expressed an interest in witnessing how it succeeds.
The Clearview board of trustees has approved the school calendar for 2022-2023.
In the calendar, accessible as a link on the Clearview Public Schools website (www.clearview.ab.ca), shows that one Professional Development day in October, November, December and March, and two Professional Development days in January, February, May and June.
The first day of School for September 2022 wil be Sept. 1.
Staff, parent engagement
