A few short weeks ago, Calgarians elected a new Board of Trustees who are deeply passionate about public education and committed to ensuring every student is successful in their learning.
We are eager to make a difference for students, and we know that we can’t do it alone; employees, families, partners and community members all play a critical role in supporting our students and public education in Alberta.
Moving forward, trustees will be focusing efforts in a few key areas, the most important of which will be ensuring that the voices of parents/guardians, students, staff, experts, trustees and community members are considered and reflected in the province’s draft K-6 curriculum. This is an area that was highlighted time and time again when trustees met with families and community members in the run up to the municipal election in October.
We know there are many other issues that will challenge the CBE and public education in Alberta in the future, and we look forward to connecting with you in the New Year to hear your thoughts and perspectives.
Until then, we wish all of you a happy, safe and relaxing winter break.
