Open House on RURAL EDUCATION

*  *  *

PLACE:         North Peace Secondary School – Library

DATE:            Friday, March 3rd, 2017

TIME:             6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

 

The Parliamentary Secretary is looking for feedback from British Columbians and interested stakeholders to provide a range of different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities facing rural school districts and communities for her consideration.

The purpose of the regional open houses is to explore rural funding and educational practices, as well as the role educational programs and schools play in rural communities across the province. These regional open houses aim to gather feedback from families and community members through an open dialogue.

Everyone is welcome to attend.  The first 30-45 minutes of each meeting will be an open house format, where light refreshments will be served.  The remaining portion of the meeting will be a more formal question and answer format with Parliamentary Secretary Linda Larson and/or Ministry of Education staff.

We invite you to share your thoughts on the following discussion questions at the open houses:

Discussion 1:   What is your definition of a rural school?

Discussion 2:   What are the positive impacts in the community?

Discussion 3:   How are schools being used?

Discussion 4:   Share your rural education story

Once all feedback on the future direction for rural education has been reviewed, a final report will be released near the end of the 2016/2017 school year. The final report will include recommendations for the future, with a focus on the unique challenges facing rural school districts, recognizing the economic, social and cultural impact that schools have on small communities.

For more information and ways to participate, please see the Ministry of Education’s website https://engage.gov.bc.ca/govtogetherbc/consultation/rural-education-strategy/
