AVRSB has developed a Long-Range Outlook, a 10-year planning document that examines all schools in our region. It takes into account enrolment and demographic trends, programming, building use, and capacity and maintenance of all schools in AVRSB. Long Range Outlooks are a new provincial requirement for school boards, and will be updated annually to reflect current and developing circumstances in schools.
All AVRSB school community members are invited to a public meeting/information session on the Long-Range Outlook taking place April 29, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. in the Second Floor Board Room of AVRSB Regional Office, 121 Orchard Street, Berwick.
Why is AVRSB creating a Long-Range Outlook?
AVRSB has engaged in long-range planning processes for different areas of our region over the last number of years. This has helped us gather public input and set a strategic course for the Board’s decision-making and actions.
With the introduction of a revised provincial School Review Policy in October 2014, all Nova Scotia school boards must now create Long-Range Outlook documents and update them annually to reflect current and developing circumstances in schools. Every five years the Long-Range Outlook will be refreshed.
We invite you to download and read the draft AVRSB Long-Range Outlook, and send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before May 15, 2015.
