We want to hear from you! - New Administrative Procedures

Posted on February 15

Northland’s “NEW” Administrative Procedures are available for you to review and provide your feedback! 


Northland Executive Staff, the Official Trustee and Terry Gunderson, Education Consultant with Alberta School Boards Association have done an extensive review of all Northland’s current administrative procedures based on the Governing Through Engagement and Collaboration (GTEC) Policy Model. The purpose of this review was to ensure revisions made to the administrative procedures and policies reflect the collective will of the Board and are carried out within the parameters set in provincial legislation. The new Administrative Procedures have been reviewed with the Local School Board Committee Chairs and Principals at an Orientation meeting held in Edmonton, January 2017.
