We wish to welcome our students, staff, and parents to the 2014/15 school year. We hope you have had an opportunity to relax and enjoy a beautiful Cape Breton summer. As we begin another school year, we wish our graduates of 2014 well in their future career plans and welcome students and parents new to our Board.
Our focus will continue to be on student achievement, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy. To this end, many of our teaching staff have been involved with our Programs department in professional development over the summer months. Our technology staff has worked diligently over July and August to refresh computers in schools and continue improvements in our existing wireless infrastructure.
Our Human Resources department has worked throughout the summer to ensure that administrative and teaching vacancies are filled. While both our Finance and HR departments have been preparing for the provincial business integration initiative, our Operations staff has managed a number of construction projects. As well, routine painting and repairs have been completed, our Transportation department has ensured our buses are ready, and now our cleaning staff is busy ensuring schools will be bright and shiny for opening day.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their commitment to create safe and comfortable environments to support student learning.
We are looking forward to another exciting school year for students and to working with all students, parents, and staff as partners in our Board’s goals:

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.
