Our Goals

The goals of our strategic plan are:

  • Meet each student’s unique needs
  • The continuous improvement of instruction and assessment
  • Reconciliation
  • Organizational effectiveness and accountability to support student learning

Making a presentation to the Board

If you wish to appear before the Board as a delegation, you need to submit your request to the Secretary-Treasurer’s Office in writing nine days before the regular meeting.

Your letter asking to appear should identify the spokesperson for your group; the topic you will be discussing, and the phone number or address where you can be reached.

Depending on the number of requests for delegations to appear before the Board, you may be scheduled for the next regular meeting or one sometime after that. When appearing before the Board, delegations are asked to limit their presentations to 10 minutes.
