Welcome to Good Spirit School Division! On behalf of my fellow Board members, I would like to pass along how excited we are to be a part of a growing, vibrant education community throughout our 29 schools in East-Central Saskatchewan where we are "Building Strong Foundations to Create Bright Futures."
The 2016-2017 school year brings with it the fifth year of our strategic plan. As a board, we want to nurture continued growth and realize that we can't do it alone. We are accountable to each other, our students and the communities we serve. Our job is to ensure public schools and students perform well. We are fully aware of the critical factors changing around us including technology, funding formulas, curriculum renewal and the ever-growing, shifting demographics and economies of the area.
With enthusiam and optimism, we continue to look forward to the challenges and triumphs ahead. We are reinvigorated with the knowledge that we will be working not only with local stakeholders but also with the Ministry of Education to advance student achievement levels. Vision 2020, the provincial Education Sector Strategic Plan, and Student First work makes for exciting days ahead! Data-based decisions will always remain a focus as well as our priority to provide a caring and respectful school environment for staff and students through our vision of "Learning Without Limits...Achievement For All."
Mrs. Lois Smandych, Chairperson
