NSD hosting "What We Heard Community Engagement" at Grouard Northland School

Posted on February 27

Northland School Division (NSD) invites parents, community members and staff to a second community engagement "What We Heard" on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at Grouard Northland School. The session is part of NSD’s Regional Education Program Review of Grouard Northland School. "What We Heard" is a followup to the first community engagement which took place February 7, 2018. NSD staff want to validate the information captured earlier this month. 

“NSD created five outcome statements to support student success,” said Shelley Willier, Area 1 Associate Superintendent. “In order to meet Outcome Statement #1, Northland students are strong in identity, healthy and successful, we need participation from staff, parents and community members to ensure schools have the resources to support sustainable student success.”

On February 7, 2018, parents, community members, and staff were asked what does Outcome #1 mean to them, where should NSD focus efforts to improve educational programming and how can Grouard, Gift Lake, Bishop Routhier and Hillview Schools work together to further support learning. The conversation transitioned to high school. Parents, community members, and staff were asked about high school programming options and a regional high school concept to serve students in smaller communities. A regional high school was listed as a recommendation in the Northland Inquiry Team Report.

The "What We Heard" community engagement begins at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 7:00 p.m. Please join us!
