Board of Trustees Meeting

October 24, 2023

September 30, 2023 Final Enrolment

Prairie Land Public School Division continues to grow in enrolment as there are over 3600 diverse students in 21 schools and home education programs throughout Alberta. With increased student numbers, the division has also received increased funding which has benefited all of our schools by increased resourcing (which equates to increased value added opportunity for our students and their communities).

Community Engagement Meetings

The Board of Trustees will be hosting Community Engagement meetings in January and February 2024 with all of our school communities. By actively participating in discussions with our Board, parents and community members can ensure that their concerns, perspectives, and ideas are considered in the decision-making process. This collaboration not only strengthens the bond between the school and the community but also promotes transparency and accountability within the education system.

Furthermore, active engagement with school boards and trustees empowers parents, teachers, and community members to advocate for the needs of their schools effectively. This engagement fosters a sense of ownership and pride within the community, as individuals become actively involved in shaping the future of their children’s education.

Additionally, the collaboration between school communities and school boards can lead to innovative solutions and initiatives that address the specific needs of local schools, ensuring that the educational experience provided is tailored to the unique requirements of the students and the community.

In essence, the active involvement of school communities with school boards and trustees is fundamental in creating a well-rounded, inclusive, and responsive education system that nurtures the potential of every student. These meetings are for staff, parents, stakeholders, and anyone in the community who would like to attend to provide input for the Board. Further details to follow.
