Parents and residents will get an opportunity to share their vision of education as Clearview School Division will host a series of community consultations across its region in November to develop a strategic plan.

“We want to give our school communities an opportunity to provide comments to trustees about their school and what they believe are the vital components of education for children in their community,” said Ken Checkel, who chairs the board.

“Our board of trustees highly values the input we receive from our school communities.”

Students, teachers, parents, business community, community leaders, and other citizens are invited.

“We are in partnership with parents in providing excellent education for their children and in keeping our schools a vital part of our communities,” said Checkel.

These consultations will form an important part of the strategic plan the division we will be developing as it looks at meeting educational needs not only today, but also into the future.”

The series starts on Nov. 3 in Big Valley and continues until Nov. 19 in Erskine.

After the first night, the forums move to Byemoor on Nov. 4, Botha on Nov. 5, Stettler on Nov. 9, Donalda on Nov. 12, Castor on Nov. 16, Brownfield on Nov. 17. Coronation on Nov. 18.

Formal sessions begin each night at 6:30 p.m.

“Education in Our Future: Looking at Our School” is the focus of discussion in first small groups from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.

A large-group discussion is set for 7:45 to 8:15 to respond to the question “Who needs to be involved – and in what way – to make our schools better?”.

The evening will conclude with a moderated question-and-answer period from 8:15 to 8:45 p.m.

Sessions will be moderated by an official with the community development branch of Alberta Culture and Community Spirit.
