CSBA Congress 2016: Courageous Leadership
The association hosted both the National Trustee Gathering on Aboriginal Education (July 6 to 7) and the CSBA Congress (July 7 to 9) in Winnipeg. The theme for the 2016 Congress was “Courageous Leadership”.
The Congress website is still being updated with presentations and other materials so check back often to see what's been added.
Fall PD Planning
Calendars fill up quickly, so you’ll want to block Friday, November 25, to join us for our fall trustee education event at the Norwood Hotel in Winnipeg.
On that date, we are pleased to be welcoming Stephen Hansen, past executive director of the British Columbia School Trustees Association, for a full-day session on “The Human Side of Effective and Efficient Leadership—It’s All About the People!” Full program and registration information will be distributed in late summer.
E2G: A Year in Review
Since the launch of E2G: A Standards Framework for Effective and Efficient School Governance, we have developed many resources to assist boards in assessing their own performance against this framework and, where necessary, adjusting their practices. Most of the nine areas have been addressed in a webinar, and all will have been covered before the new school year. Several aspects of E2G have also been addressed in Division Dispatches, short videos that are available on YouTube.
Contact Janis Arnold, at the association office for more information.
School Vandalism Watch
Our school vandalism prevention program is back again this summer. Residents living near schools in the Winnipeg area are encouraged to keep an eye open for suspicious activity, including graffiti, arson, on-site use of drugs or alcohol, and signs of break and enter. Incidents are to be reported to a dedicated tip-line at 204-231-4556.
The Corps of Commissionaires security company will respond to calls and a mobile security unit will visit the scene as quickly as possible.
