2013 Face to Face

Peace River School Division Connects with the Community

During the month of February 2013, “Conversations Toward Student Success” will see Peace River School Division Board of Trustees visit the communities of Worsley, Peace River, Grimshaw, Manning, Red Earth Creek and Fairview. The PRSD engagement initiative, “Conversations Toward Student Success” will support two-way discussions, gather the community’s voice, discuss educational topics and foster strong community relationships” says Nan Bartlett, PRSD Board Chair.

“We are very excited to connect with students, parents, staff and community members to discuss educational topics that will assist in future planning” says Bartlett. “The input of the community is important to us and we look forward to working together for the success of all students."

The anticipated two hour group discussions are designed to provide an atmosphere that supports open dialogue in a relaxed setting.

For those that are unable to participate in the face-to-face community consultations, an online conversation will be made available to ensure everyone can participate and have their voice heard. The conversation topics will be posted on PRSD’s discussion board “Conversations Toward Student Success ONLINE” starting February 13, 2013 and will be available for feedback until March 5, 2013.

“We encourage students, parents, staff and community members to log-in and provide input through the online discussion board. Every voice matters” says Bartlett. “The information gathered through this process will serve as a valuable tool toward the division’s future strategic planning as well as help determine budget priorities” says Bartlett. It is very important for us to connect with the community as we move forward.”
