Engaging the Community: School Closures and Other Issues of Interest

December 13, 2007

This presentation was given at the 2006 BCSTA Academy by MaryLynne Rimer, Chair of the Saanich School Board and Dr. Keven Elder, the Superintendent of Saanich School District. It provides some background and information on:

  • Saanich School District’s school closure process and the lessons learned from that process;
  • how the school district engaged the community; and
  • the Commission on Public Education that the Saanich School District carried out. Through this Commission the Board received input from community members about what the community felt was important for public education. This information will be used to guide future budget decisions.
