The Board met this past Tuesday for their regular meeting. They passed a motion to approve the 2020-21 budget that was presented earlier this month at a public budget meeting. They agreed to forward the budget to the city by March 13th.
The meeting also saw the Trustees acknowledge a report of the task force on school bus safety. A motion was passed to further discuss the matter in the near future. The Division’s bus drivers have reported an increase in the amount of vehicles passing them while students are disembarking. This is extremely reckless and illegal.
Superintendent Tammy Ballantyne thanked parents and community members for their input for the 2020-21 calendar survey which is due to the Department of Education by May 1st. Visit the Division’s website around that time for more details.
