School District 49 Board reports on first meeting of the year

The first School Board Meeting of 2014 was held January 21 at the Board Office in Hagensborg.  Trustees reviewed the enrollment of all District Schools, which is 221 students. Trustees approved a number of Outdoor Education Field Trips, as well as the SAMS Boy’s Basketball trip to Burns Lake.

The District Vice-Principal, Steve Dishkin, presented the proposed 2014/15 School Calendar to the Trustees. They accepted the calendar as presented and now ask the public to provide comments. The proposed school calendar can be viewed on the School District Web Page (www.sd49.bc.ca).

Trustees also reviewed the amended Harassment and Bullying Regulation (Reg 6008). This regulation has passed first reading and is now available on the School District web page for public input. All comments can be submitted to the board office.

Trustees value and encourage public comments and input. School District 49 trustees also invite individuals to look at the Ministry of Education web site on the “New BC Curriculum”. A link can be found on the SD49 web site.

Finally trustees would like to remind the public that you are welcome to attend School Board Meetings. The last item on the agenda is Questions Of and By the Board. If you have any questions about putting an item on the agenda please contact the board office.

Trustees are always happy to talk to residents regarding local education issues. Trustees are Nicola Koroluk (chair, Bella Coola), Russ Hilland (vice chair, Bella Coola), Marisa Blewett (Bella Coola), Chrystal Anderson (Shearwater), and Frank Johnson (Oweekeno). The next School Board meeting is Tuesday, February 18, 2014 at 1 PM at the School Board Office.
