Red Deer Public Schools has launched its community engagement process through to the beginning of February.
The division’s Board of Trustees will review what the community says during this process at the end of February at their two-day Board conference.
According to a release, the division intends to engage with the community around our Division priorities and day-to-day experiences for students.
“The division’s priorities currently include literacy and numeracy, equity and student success and completion. These have been Red Deer Public’s priorities since 2012,” said Nicole Buchanan, Board Chair.
“There are strong links between these priority areas. These are not standalone priorities, each of these areas overlap in meeting the needs of all students. Our priorities are the foundation of all we do at Red Deer Public, but the highest priority for Red Deer Public is the success of every child in school.”
Red Deer Public’s Education Plan responds to local priorities and aspirations, as well as those of Alberta Education.
“As we move into our community engagement we want to ensure our planning is focused on key priorities, and those key priorities may have changed,” said Buchanan.
“We will continue to focus on these key areas, but we want to know if our community feels there are other priorities Red Deer Public should work towards.”

- Jan. 12 - Teacher Voice Committee
- Jan. 16 - February 17 - Middle Schools, K-8, High School Engagement (lunch hour at each school)
