AVRSB Long-Range Outlook: Opportunity to Share Your Response

AVRSB invites your response to its Long-Range Outlook, a 10-year planning document that examines all schools in our region.

This document was presented at the April 1, 2015 AVRSB Regular Board Meeting. It takes into account enrolment and demographic trends, programming, building use, and capacity and maintenance of all schools in AVRSB. Long Range Outlooks are a new provincial requirement for school boards, and will be updated annually to reflect current and developing circumstances in schools.

We invite you to download and read the draft AVRSB Long-Range Outlook (click here), and send your responses to feedback@avrsb.ca on or before May 15, 2015.

An information session on the Long-Range Outlook is planned for the evening of April 29 and is open to all interested individuals. More information on this session will be posted here soon.
