Town Hall 2018

CALL FOR QUESTION TOPICS FOR THE BOARD TOWN HALL

SUBMIT BY JANUARY 12

The District will be hosting its annual Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 6.30-9 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Victoria Park School Gymnasium (1515–5 Avenue South). The purpose of the meeting is to seek feedback to assist the District and Board of Trustees in planning for the future.

The Board is seeking question topics for consideration for the February 2018 Town Hall from parents, students and staff. The Board will review the submitted ideas and develop an inquiry question for the Town Hall.

The Board would like the topic to fall under one of the following Board priority areas. Please note both of these areas are very broad and as such, have the potential for the expression of many areas of interest for consideration.

Supporting Student Achievement or Supporting Student Diversity

Two years ago, the Town Hall was the first step in the development of a new District vision and mission. Following Town Hall, online feedback loops, input from staff and students and reflection at a Board retreat, a new vision and mission was finalized (see vision and mission below). Three key priorities for the Board’s Education Plan were also identified: Supporting Student Achievement, Developing Innovative Thinkers and Supporting Student Diversity. Last year (February 2017), the inquiry questions for Town Hall focused on strategies to develop innovative thinkers. A number of strategies generated at the Town Hall are in the Board’s Education Plan for 2017-18.

Vision

Learners are innovative thinkers who are successful, confident, respectful and caring.

Mission

Lethbridge School District is inclusive, forward-thinking and accountable for engaging students in quality learning experiences that develop strong foundations, innovative minds and responsible citizens.
