K-12 Education Action Plan

On April 20, 2022, the Manitoba Government launched the Manitoba K-12 Education Action Plan.

A fundamental responsibility of school boards is to ensure that the schools they govern provide the programming, supports and services all students need, in a way that is responsive to and reflective of the educational priorities of local communities. On October 6, 2021, the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba withdrew Bill 64, The Education Modernization Act.

The association continues to encourage all Manitobans to understand the risks involved in amending local democratic accountability from public education as proposed by the K-12 Review Commission. MSBA's "Local Voices, Local Choices" and “Your Voice Matters” campaigns highlighted the importance of individual and community voice and to never lose sight of the fact that schools belong to communities. We thank you for your ongoing support. Without you, Bill 64 would have compromised the quality of Manitoba’s school system and the programs, supports and services it provides.
