PROGRAMS & STUDENT SERVICES
During the month of June, the Student Services Lead Team has been meeting to create a handbook for Student Services and to collate forms for principal use when accessing Student Services personnel for the upcoming school-year.
Professional development offerings and dates for professional development are also being created so that principals will be aware of what is being offered and when it will be available.
Breakfast for Learning
On Wednesday, May 21, 2008, a Thank You Breakfast was held for volunteers and major supporters of the Breakfast for Learning Program. We currently have 58 out of 61 sites that offer the Breakfast Program. It has been very successful. Debbie Madore, Nutrition for Learning Consultant with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board, and the volunteers have been doing an excellent job.
A fundraising Golf Tournament for the Breakfast for Learning Program will be held at Bell Bay on Friday, June 13, 2008.
CAPER (Checklist for Administrative Protocol for Emergency Response)
Our Emergency Response Plan has been sent to be printed and will be distributed to school administrators at the August meeting. CAPER (Checklist for Administrative Protocol for Emergency Response) follows the guidelines set out by the School Safety Committee of the Department of Education in conjunction with Cst. Mark Young. School administrators will work with their staffs in September on these protocols.
Youth Leadership Program
The Youth Leadership Program in nine of our schools is finishing up for this year. This program is delivered in schools in partnership with Sport Nova Scotia and Community Services. The goal is to assist youth between the ages of 18 and 30. These participants are mentored in schools by our physical education teachers and school administrators, in the delivery of sport and physical activity programs. The program emphasis is to provide meaningful employment enhancement experiences while developing positive life skills. We hope to increase our involvement to 12 schools next year and all of the schools who participated this year would like to be considered for next year.
