Board honoured

The Chinook’s Edge School Division board of education has been honoured for the creation of the Community Learning Campus in Olds. The school division was awarded the 2009 Alberta School Boards Association’s Premier’s Award for School Board Innovation and Excellence during the ASBA’s fall meeting in Edmonton earlier this week. The $3,000 award was sponsored by Xerox Canada. The Community Learning Campus is a joint project between the school board and Olds College, which allows high school students to transition to apprenticeship, college or university courses in their senior years. The CLC facilities took five years to complete and they include the Core High School, the Health and Wellness Centre, the Fine Arts and Multi Media Centre and the Bell e-Learning Centre, which are used by high school and college students, as well as the community. It is the 10th anniversary for the premier’s award to be given out.
