School Boards to hold By-Elections In June

School board elections are a great opportunity for Manitobans to get involved in public education - by voting or running as a candidate for school trustee. To learn more about role of school boards and school trustees, check out our Guide to School Boards and Trusteeship.
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.
