Community Engagement Discussion

The Government of Alberta is committed to working collaboratively with members of the Northland School Division community to take action and help ensure a positive future for students of the division. Part of this commitment means working to restore the division to an elected board of trustees in fall 2017, to coincide with the next school board elections.

To ensure communities have an opportunity to have their voices heard, and to gather input on the future governance of the division, Alberta Education is holding a series of community engagement discussions.





January 24

5:00 - 7:30 p.m.

St. Theresa School

2733 Neewatin Drive

All interested members of the community are welcome to attend. A meal will be provided at each session.

We look forward to meeting with you to explore how we can work together to ensure an effective board structure and, ultimately, improve student learning.

If you have any questions, you may contact Nathan Freed, Director, North Services, Alberta Education, at 780-422-0795 (toll-free in Alberta by first dialing 310-0000).
