Education Review

 

 

The Manitoba Government has recently established a Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education to undertake a comprehensive, independent review of the system. The Commission is seeking comments from students, parents, educators, school boards, academics, municipal councils, professional organizations, the business community, as well as the general public.  The commission is seeking feedback on a wide range of topics, including:
 
- Student learning
- Teaching
- Accountability for student learning
- Governance
- Funding
 
The information you provide will assist the commission in forming recommendations.
 
Stakeholders can provide written submissions by May 30 in the following ways:
- Email to  k12educationcommission@gov.mb.ca 
- Fax to 204-945-0221
- Mail to Manitoba’s Commission on Kindergarten to Grade 12 Education
             470-800 Portage Ave.
             Winnipeg, Manitoba
              R3G 0N4
 
It is our understanding that more information will follow with regards to public meetings and online surveys.  
 
Please take the time to become actively involved and ensure that your local voice is heard before any Provincial decisions are made. Don’t you think that our students and communities deserve local decision making that affects their own futures?  
 
Southwest Horizon School Division will post further information as and when it becomes available.
