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.

News Release - School Review Process Posted by Administrator (August 25, 2015 2:00:pm)

NEWS RELEASE

SCHOOL REVIEW PROCESS

The Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board has by motion initiated a school review process in each of the following Families of Schools:

>  Northside Family of Schools
>  Riverview Family of Schools
>  Sydney Family of Schools
>  New Waterford Family of Schools
>  Glace Bay Family of Schools

The School Reviews are to be conducted in compliance with the Provincial School Review Policy. The outcome of this process could mean the permanent closure of some or all of the nineteen schools identified for potential closure as referenced  in the Recommendation to Review as presented by the staff of the Board.

The possibility of initiating school reviews in the Families of Schools under the jurisdiction of the School Board was articulated in the Long Range Outlook of the Board that was approved in April 2015 and is currently available for viewing on the Board's website.

The School Review process allows for community input lead by School Options Committees made up of School Advisory Committee members and community members, with the assistance of a facilitator. The School Options Committees are required to have 3 public meetings to provide opportunities to the public to understand the process, to review options/scenarios, and to provide feedback on a preferred option/scenario. The Terms of Reference that will guide the work of the School Options Committee is found on the board website.  Consistent with the Provincial School Review Policy, the process will extend over the next seven months with the final determination made in respect to the permanent closure of schools required next spring.

Any school approved by the Board for permanent closure at the conclusion of the school review process must close by September 2020.
