Please find attached a letter from Minister Rob Fleming providing a rationale for the delay in implementing the graduation program and an outline of the changes and their impact on students in grades 9 through 12. The Minister is requesting that this letter be delivered to every parent in our district
Superintendent Alison Sidow has requested this be sent to you this morning.
On another note, Ms. Sidow wants parents to know that we are fortunate that the Minister has responded to our request for a visit to School District 73 and has confirmed that he will be in attendance on Friday, November 17th. Minister Fleming will visit Valleyview Secondary for a tour and all partners meeting (CHAIR, BCSSA, KTPVPA, KTTA, CUPE, DPAC, AEC, STUDENT) and a private meeting with the Board of Education before traveling to Westmount Elementary for a visit in a grade 3 classroom and a meeting with the parents and administration. The focus of our meeting is capital but we will also showcase our Strategic Plan and the good work happening across our district.
Thanks so much,
