FALL MEETINGS & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
At the upcoming virtual fall general meeting on November 21, MSBA is offering a session on the topic of Representation on School Boards and pre-recorded Conversations with the Community moderated by Rob Santos, former Director of the Provincial Healthy Child Office and Assistant Deputy Minister for K-12 education.
Discussions will centre on representation and inclusivity of marginalized groups on school boards, as well as within the school division. We will also look at what school boards, as governors and leaders of local school divisions, may consider as short-term and long-term achievable measures to provide for all voices to be heard.
Guests include: Jerome Cranston, Ph.D., Professor and the Dean in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina; Darren Googoo, Chair of the CEA/EdCan Network, the Chair of the Council on Mi’kmaw Education and former Chair of the Cape Breton- Victoria Regional School Board; and Tom Gentzel, retired NSBA Executive Director (2012-2020).
An October 28 memo in divisional mail provides parameters and scope for questions boards can submit in advance. Please submit questions for guests by emailing Janis Arnold by November 10, 2020. The conversations will be broadcast online using the same Zoom link and following the business portion of the program.
