School Vandalism Prevention


stop vandalism

The school vandalism prevention program is back again this summer. Residents living near schools in Winnipeg 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. They are asked to report any such incidents 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.


A 20/20 Perspective on 20K3


RFP

The provincial government’s decision to eliminate targeted funding for class size reduction in the early years has generated a lot of discussion. Much of that discussion has focussed on the possible negative impact of this change on students. In his response to one article that advanced that view, President Ken Cameron looks at the class-size research, and shows how this change may actually help kids who are struggling.
