Education Committee: Indigenous Education

Education Committee, Indigenous

The Board of Trustees welcomes members of the public to its upcoming Education Committee virtual meeting. The Board has established nine Standing Committees for the ongoing study of major areas of responsibility. One or more Trustees participate on each of the nine standing committees. The committees meet regularly to discuss the issues that are important to teachers, students and Parkland School Division staff. In particular, Education Committee meetings cover issues around curriculum and programs while celebrating student learning and achievements. The topic for the next meeting is Indigenous Education.
