Superintendent Constance McCleese reported the Division is currently in the process of running leadership academy programs for new Trustees. The programs are run in house depending on the expertise required. The programs basically cover the nuts and bolts of how to run a school with smart goal outcomes. The programs run once a month with the next starting on December 4th with ten programs in total.
New Chair Leslie Fernandes welcomed the new Trustees while recognizing the commitment of the outgoing Trustees Angie Simpson and Trish Sattelberger. She also reflected on her first year as a Trustee saying she has learned a lot about the politics of education.
