At the time of writing, we still do not know 100% the results of the provincial election. It is safe to say however, that the NDP has won a majority government. It is the hope of many districts throughout the province that our co-governance relationship will remain intact, and that our agreements and funding during this pandemic will continue.
Throughout the month, we’ve spent much time working with the BCSTA, district chairs, South Coast Branch, as well as many of our local governments to instill our message on the health and safety of our students and staff, and get more information on the measures taken on their ends during this pandemic.
Working with Vancouver Coastal Health as well is an important factor to these difficult times. We are in consultation with them and our local health officials on a regular basis, keeping tabs on the local happenings and updates.
Our staff has been vigilant in following Covid procedures. While there have been exposures in a few other districts, we still remain clear of any ourselves. Again, thank you to our wonderful staff for their hard work.
Today is our Board Elections. I will not be accepting any nominations for Chair or Vice-Chair this year. It has been an amazing time leading the board for the last two years. I would like to thank my fellow trustees for their confidence in me and our senior staff for their support! This has been a huge learning experience and I am grateful for the opportunity to grow as a trustee, and of course as a person.
Thank you to all!
