Board Highlights

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING
North Highlands Elementary
May 26, 2014
On May 26, 2014 the Board met for their Regular monthly meeting.
Correspondence was received from the Department of Education regarding TCA projects.
A presentation was made by students of North Highlands Elementary. Grade Four student Ali MacKinnon, Grade Five student Rory MacKinnon and Grade Six student Emma MacKinnon did their speeches from the public speaking competition. They also had a bullying video from the 2/3 class and a nutrition video from the P/1 class.
The presentations were excellent and very informative.
Mr. Ambrose White, Superintendent followed up with his report. (posted on the Board website) Highlights of his report included The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board welcomes Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Karen Casey, on May 29th. Minister Casey will visit with the Board and discuss issues, concerns, trends and other topics. She will also be here to open the NSSBA Annual Meeting. I will be visiting schools with Minister Casey on Friday morning, May 30th. We will visit several schools within our Board, and I look forward to the opportunity.
The Minister announced another Schools Plus site for our Board to be located at John Bernard Croak School. This announcement took place on Friday, May 23, and this is once again providing a wonderful service to students and families in the Glace Bay area. Our site at Sherwood Park Education Centre has proven to be an extremely valuable program, and I am confident the new site in Glace Bay will be likewise. We hope to open a third site in the Northside area in the future to service Victoria County as well.

Self-identification
Self-identification Posted by Gwen Smith (November 28, 2014)

November 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Cape Breton-Victoria  Regional School Board set a goal for  2014-2015 to  continue  to promote and encourage the self-identification of all students.

Self-identification is important to our school system and to our students. It is essentialto know who our students are and which communities we serve.  It will help us to understand how our demographics  are  changing  and  how  best  to  support  our  students  and  schools.    Self­ identification will assist us in determining  the allocation of resources and personnel to best support the  achievement of  all students.   We are encouraging all parents  and students to identify their ancestry and Aboriginal identity.

Until recently, the student registration form limited a person's ability to self-identify.  You could only identify one Ancestry and/or Aboriginal Identity but now the new form allows a person to choose more than one.

We are sending the  self-identification  flyer to  all parents/guardians  of students  within  the CBVRSB.Our target date for this release is the week of December 1-5,2014. We recognize that many parents have already chosen to self-identify,however we wanted to provide everyone with  the opportunity to complete  or update their  designation especially in light of your now being able to identify more than one Ancestry and/or Aboriginal identity.

For further information regarding self-identification, please contact your school administration. I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to complete the form and returning it to the school via your child.

Regards,

Beth Macisaac
