Board Meeting Highlights - June 19, 2018

Leadership Initiative Team (LIT)

Representatives from the PLRD Leadership Initiative Team (LIT) presented to the trustees on the leadership initiatives that they have implemented over the three years for the division.  LIT has been involved with planning the Junior High Leadership Retreat that is held in September for grades 7, 8 & 9 students and the Impact Day that is held in May for grade 9 students.  Other initiatives that LIT has attended or been part of are the Healthy Schools Action Plan, Alberta Student Leadership Conference (ASLC), and the PLRD Health and Wellness Board.  The Board would like to thank these dedicated students for all their hard work and assistance with the division programs.


PLRD Accountability Pillar Results

PLRD’s May 2018, Alberta Education Accountability Pillar results were reviewed and are once again outstanding as they continue to show growth as staff and students perform at a level well above the provincial average. 

The provincial accountability pillar rates school divisions on seven indicators of effectiveness. PLRD scored excellent results for operating safe and caring schools, for providing optimal student learning opportunities, preparing students for lifelong learning, the world of work, and citizenship, parental involvement with the schools and system, and continual school improvement.  The Board wishes to acknowledge the intentional and impactful work of its staff and students as they continue to make PLRD one of the highest performing school divisions in the province.


2018-2019 PLRD Staffing

For the 2018-2019 school year there have been four principal appointments; Ms. Silke Wissner for Veteran School, Mr. Ryan Duckworth for Delia School, Mr. Brian Giesbrecht for Berry Creek Community School, and Mr. Mark Breadner for Youngstown School. 

PLRD would like to welcome all new staff to PLRD for the upcoming school year.
