Board mtg- March 10

Click on the link to the left ("Helpful Links"---"Board agendas") and go to "Meeting #12- March 10" for full details. You can read all the reports on line.

Here's a few things that have caught my eye:
- Edwin Parr Teacher Award nominee finalists will be announced (agenda item 3)

- District Enrolment Impact of ASAP Schools (agenda item 4). This report shows how the 6 new schools, with 5000 student spaces, will impact neighbouring schools.

- Trustee requests for info (agenda item 6). Topics: feasibility of paperless board meetings, rates of recidivism for suspensions, trying to reduce bus ride-times.

- ASBA Infrastructure survey submission (agenda item 8) which urges "provincial utilization calculations recognize private and not-for-profit tenants and partners." (page 3)

- Policy revisions to:
Fiscal Oversight and Management (agenda item 9),
Purchasing--- includes environmental and ethical considerations (item 11),
Staff Reduction (agenda item13)

There may be other things that catch your attention, but on first glance, these are the items that I was eager to discuss. Please let me know if you have any thoughts to share.

"Detailed information regarding the sector review process will be
presented to the Board of Trustees in March 2009." under the item on ASAp schools should be cause for enhanced interest as well.
