(7) DELEGATIONS AND PETITIONS:


Commissioner Matheson noted that we will be formally adding to our agenda this evening a time commitment for students within our Board to present. Commissioner Tilley introduced two students from Jubilee Elementary. Sam Finney a Grade Six student and Lucas Penney a Grade four student of the school.


Sam Finney spoke of his school. He noted the school is fairly new and has 235 students. He noted the name was derived from a former mine in the school area. He noted he plays basketball for the school and volunteers with the Breakfast program and is also involved in the Peer Mediation Group. He enjoys his school.


Lucas Penney provided a power-point presentation which he made on his own. His power-point was regarding Light and light sources. He spoke on how light travels in straight lines and waves. He also spoke on the speed of light. Light travels faster than anything in the universe and is made up of many colors. He further highlighted transparent, translucent, opaque light, refraction and reflection.

He provided the Board with a demonstration of the use of a smart board which they now use in his classroom.



(8) SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:

Mr. Ambrose White, Superintendent of Schools presented an oral report. He began by offering a welcome back to everyone and wish a sincere happy and healthy New Year to our students, staff, Board members, parents/guardians, SAC members and others who volunteer in our system.

He noted we are approaching the end of January, and this brings the conclusion of the first semester for our high school students and the beginning of exams. February 1st is a grading and classifying day for our semestered schools followed by the start of the second semester and the half-way point of our school year.

The Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board has completed and published our Strategic Plan for 2012-2017. This was a very extensive exercise that included the creation of a steering committee, critical issue chair persons, focus groups and random surveys of households within our Board. The four critical issues identified are:

a) Governance which stresses a collaborative governance model.

b) Pathways to Success which involves all dimensions of the services provided by the CBVRSB.

c) Integrated Curriculum/Instruction: This is reflected in our Vision/Mission to provide a learning environment that challenges all students to succeed.

d) Demographic Dynamics: Declining enrollment impacts all areas of our work and is directly linked to funding thereby creating fiscal pressures.

He noted that he had presented an overview of the Strategic Plan to the Board members at the Education Committee meeting on Monday, January 14th, along with the goals and priorities of the Business Plan. He will also be presenting both documents with principals at their monthly meeting being held Wednesday of this week.

The Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board has also developed a document “Looking Inward”. This is a planning framework for long-term facility provision and system sustainability in a time of changing demographics. This planning document will provide vital information to the Board, staff, school advisory councils, and other community stakeholders. The Board will discuss the document in early February and information sessions will follow to principals, school committees and stakeholders upon approval by the Board.

A Shared Services Review and Analysis has been initiated by the Province of Nova Scotia through the Treasury Department. There are four areas of focus including Finance, Information Technology, Human Resources, and Building and Asset Management. The scope of the review includes all government departments, crown corporations reporting to Economic Development and Tourism, and school boards. Ernst and Young have been contracted to assist in this review. An advisory panel, including four representatives from school boards, has been established to work with Ernst and Young to make recommendations to Treasury.

He noted our staff spent much of December compiling data in the four designated areas which was sent to the committee. He recognized the role of all divisions in the compilation of this data. It was a tremendous amount of work that had to be completed within 10 days.

A Spend Analysis committee or Strategic Procurement Project was also established in October. This committee is searching ways to buy in bulk across the province to attain savings. It too involved government departments and agencies and school boards. Deloitte have been engaged to oversee this project and RFPs have been issued on things like computers, printers, etc., parts for buses and vehicles and others. There is a Senior Stakeholder committee that oversees the project and approves recommendations to be sent to the Treasury Department. He represents school boards and superintendents on this committee. These two projects are another way the government is trying to save money to get “Back to Balance”. He will keep you apprised on this project and the impact for school boards.

He recognized senior appointments to two of our partner institutions that occurred over the past month. Our own Mr. Fred Tilley was appointed Principal of Marconi Campus, which is the local campus of the Nova Scotia Community College and Dr. David Wheeler was appointed President elect of Cape Breton University effective April 1. The CBVRSB has a wonderful relationship with both of these institutions and the vast majority of our graduates attend either one or the other upon graduation. He has met with the previous leaders of these institutions each year to discuss issues, concerns, if any, etc., and will engage with the two new leaders to foster and develop that ongoing relationship.

He had the opportunity to present and participate in a question and answer session with the Victoria County Council at their January 21st monthly meeting. This was a very worthwhile endeavor and reaffirms our goal of last year to improve communications with community stakeholders. He hopes to attend a committee of the whole session with the CBRM council in the next couple of months.

The position of Regional Education Officer is still vacant and is with the Human Resources Division at the provincial level.

Primary registration for students under the jurisdiction of the Cape Breton Victoria Regional School Board was held on Monday and Tuesday, January 21st and 22nd. Registration must take place at your neighborhood school. If you missed registration, please contact your local school to do so.

He directed everyone’s attention, and that of the board members and staff, to the comments from our school principals that are placed on individual school websites. These items represent the awards, achievements and successes of our students and staff within the boundaries of the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board. Again, He asked that principals ensure that these important communications are kept up-to-date.

Moved by Commissioner Currie
Seconded by Commissioner Berk

that the Board accept the Superintendent’s Report as presented. . .

Motion carried
2013-01-05



A copy of his report is attached to the original minutes.



(9) BOARD CHAIR REPORT:

Mr. Lorne Green, Board Chair presented his report orally.

He welcomed back students, staff, and board members after the holiday season. He noted that the Board will now roll up their sleeves, get back work and make some of the difficult decisions that have to be made in order to deliver the best education opportunities to the students of the Cape Breton-Victoria School Board.

This year the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board will embark upon a very emotional and difficult issue - the review of, and the possible closure of, some of our schools. This alternative will not be considered lightly, but the Board realizes and guarantees comprehensive instructional programs for all students in all schools. By reviewing schools, we are able to offer more students more services, varied facilities access, technological onsite itinerant instruction and other opportunities not offered at small school sites.

He further noted that we have an upcoming meeting dedicated solely to this issue and full board participation is strongly recommended.

The mission of all regional boards is to manage the system in order to achieve the goals set for children to accomplish their outcomes, to ensure their welfare, safety and the fulfillment of their future expectations.

The Regional Board assumes responsibility for policy making, for monitoring all aspects of children's education, for the operation of all school facilities, and for transportation within the boundaries of Cape Breton County & Victoria County. The Board is responsible for appointing a Superintendent to manage the budget, hire and supervise all staff, account for the students' welfare and their educational achievements as well as make recommendations for the operations of all schools and support services. All board members have received the superintendents’ performance appraisal forms and I encourage members to complete as much of this as you are comfortable with. Understanding some may feel as though you were not on the board long enough yet.

Board chairs from across the province have met to discuss various issues such as shared services, contract negotiations both teachers and CUPE. It is our hope that the province can come to an agreement with both as not to cause an adversed affect on the education of student we are entrusted to care for.

He took the time to publicly thank the Golden-K for the initiating the first K-Kids in the province. This group is from Harbourside Elementary School. Some board members may remember Donald Matheson who was the former Director of Operations with this board and is responible for this group. He works directly with them to oversee all activity as well with the help of staff at the school. He encouraged all board members to pay a visit to this school to see first-hand the good work they are doing on behalf of the board and community. He further noted that they are truly an inspiration and the future leaders of this community, province and perhaps even the country.
