AVRSB Long Term Planning
As part of the new provincial school review policy implemented in October 2014, all school boards must now create Long-Range Outlook planning documents, and present these documents to the public for response before they are finalized.
The AVRSB Long-Range Outlook was presented at the April 1 Board Meeting. To help ensure school communities can access and respond to the document, please post the attached information to your school website. The current draft of the Long-Range Outlook is also attached for your information. Click here.
In the coming weeks, we will be sending an invitation to all parent/guardian support group contacts (SACs, Home and Schools, etc.) with an invitation to an April 29 information session on the Long-Range Outlook. We will update you on details of this meeting as soon as possible.
