Board receives Guiding Our Future engagement report

During the April 27 Board meeting, trustees heard from engagement consultant Kim Hyshka of Dialogue Partners and received the final report of the Guiding Our Future engagement activities.

Guiding Our Future is a project and conversation about working together to map out a sustainable path forward regarding junior high programming in the communities of Beaverlodge and Hythe.

Parents, staff, students, and community members were invited to participate online or in-person, and all data collected throughout the engagement process has been organized into a final report, which can be found on the Guiding Our Future webpage.

Trustees will debate the findings presented in the report at the next Board meeting on Thursday, May 25.

PWPSD Assurance Survey provides schools with important insight

Between April 24 and May 9, parents/guardians, students, and school-based staff were invited to complete a Division assurance survey. New this year, the survey was designed to gather input on items that are important in guiding the Division towards its priorities of ensuring high quality student learning, equity in education, and wellness.

Once compiled, results will be sent to individual schools to update their three-year plans, which identify the priorities, outcomes, and strategies that will be used to achieve their goals.

Thank you everyone who took the time to complete the PWPSD Assurance Survey!
