Board Highlights - March 27

The Board acknowledges the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta and the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3.

 

Presentation: Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) for Bus Drivers

Director of Transportation, Wanda LeRoux, provided an overview of the new Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) for Bus Drivers.  As one of the first school divisions to be MELT certified, Foothills School Division has already implemented this training for its bus drivers.

 

Presentation: Longview School Education Plan

Rhonda Bymak, Acting Principal of Longview School started her presentation to the Board by reciting the school land acknowledgement created by the students.  Ms Bymak continued by exploring the school culture and bridging relationships between Longview and Eden Valley.

Ms Bymak addressed two school goals:

  1. All students at Longview School will demonstrate a high level of learning and achievement through a continued focus on literacy and numeracy.
  2. Longview School will continue to develop a safe, caring and welcoming learning environment for all.

Request by Uncle Bob’s Self Storage

The Board of Trustees supports the request by Uncle Bob’s Self Storage proposing a relaxation request to 17’ (5.18m) with the following provisions:

  • That this support in no way limits future Foothills School Division developments on its property, either by Uncle Bob’s Self Storage or any other party;
  • The proposed development shall respect the existing drainage patterns of the Foothills School Division parcel and farmland to the north.

 

DARE Review

Assistant Superintendent Caroline Roberts presented the findings of a review conducted on the DARE Program.  The focus of the Board’s decision was around how the program supports and enhances student learning in Foothills School Division.

The Board has discontinued its Divisional support of the DARE Program as a supplement to the health curriculum, as of September 1, 2019.  Individual school may choose to access DARE as a school-based resource. The Board has allocated the funding previously set aside for the DARE Program ($19,072) to schools with Grade 5 students to purchase resources necessary to meet health curriculum outcomes.
