Dear School Advisory Council chairs:

As you may know, last year the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development released a new School Review Policy which directed all school boards in Nova Scotia to develop a Long Range Outlook (LRO).

 

The LRO provides information about school building condition, capacity and student enrollment for every school in CCRSB. The real value of the information found in the LRO is its collective capacity to help our governing board make decisions regarding the future for all schools in our jurisdiction. It is a document that will be referenced during any future School Review Process.

CCRSB’s initial Long Range Outlook was released last summer; the first update must be completed by March 31st. To assist school communities in better understanding both the contents and purpose of the Long Range Outlook, and to gather input for the update, we have scheduled four community meetings:

 

  • Tuesday, February 2nd  – 7:00 pm – Cobequid Educational Centre
  • Thursday, February 4th – 7:00 PM – Hants East Rural High
  • Monday, February 8th – 7:00 PM – Northumberland Regional High School
  • Tuesday, February 9th – 7:00 PM – Springhill Junior-Senior High School

 

At each community meeting we will be looking at the data contained in the LRO as it relates to individual schools, as well as the connection between groups of schools and how students move from one school to the next. For instance, we know that many of our schools have considerably fewer students than what they were built to hold. We also know that the number of students beginning Grade Primary each school year is getting smaller. What do we do with this information?

 

The School Review Process is the mechanism that allows school boards to consider whether school reconfigurations, changes in boundaries, and/or school closures are warranted to maximize efficiencies and ensure the delivery of a high quality education for all students. The LRO is the key document in supplying data for the School Review Process. As such, it is very important that this update to the LRO is collaborative, involving SACs, parents, guardians and community members.


I am hoping that you and your fellow SAC members will join us at the community meeting in your area, to lend your voices to this important discussion. I would also appreciate your help in spreading the word about the meeting with the members of your community. We need to hear a variety of voices to find the best community-generated ideas.

 

We feel strongly that building a shared understanding of both CCRSB’s priorities for the education of students, and the optimal use of our resources to accomplish this, is an excellent example of the shared purpose we began to explore during the SAC consultations last October.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

 

Sincerely,

 

Gary S. Adams

Safe Choice has been informed, by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles, that anyone who obtains their beginners up and and
including March31st, 2016, will fall under the old rules of getting your license.  So, I will be putting on another course
early March, if there are any students that want to take the course that turn 16 before March 31st.  They will then be able to
get their license in three months.  After April 1`, 2016, even with  Driver's Ed Course, they will have to wait 9 months, and without
the course 12 months.
 
This course will begin March 2, 2016, IF there are enough students to participate. 
Please contact Heather MacDougal @

purr4me254@gmail.com

 

 

 

Due to several requests, ​Safe Choice Driving School will be offering a six hour Defensive Driving Course

 on February 13, 2016, at the

Diligent River Community Centre. Civic # 10267, Hwy 209.

Hall is on the right, and it has a red roof. Anyone that needs the "N" of their license, now or in the future is eligible to take this couerse. 

This will run from 9 am to 4 pm (9 - 12; 1 - 4) , and it will enable you to get the "N" off your license.

You can bring your lunch, or go into Parrsboro to purchase it.  The price is $100.00.

If you are interested, please send me your full name as is printed on your Driver's License, and your Master Number, and your phone number/e mail for contact purposes.

Please contact me via e mail with the above information.

My e mail is purr4me254@gmail.com.  

I will require a $25.00 non refundable deposit (unless it is cancelled)  in cash or money order, it can be sent to  

10713 - Hwy 209, RR#3, Parrsboro, NS  BOM 1SO. 

The balance will then be $75.00 which can be paid at the door.

   You will not be registered until I receive your deposit.

The reason why I am asking for cash and a deposit, is that in past courses, people would register and then not come, and I have had cheques bounce.  

     Would you please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested.

Please feel free to cross post, and to send to as many sites and schools as you can. Thank you.

Note: New Drivers
 
What are the additional GDL changes which will happen April 1, 2016?
 
Effective April 1, 2016, the minimum waiting period to take the passenger vehicle road test will
be increased by 6 months. This means that you will have to wait a minimum of 12 months 
instead of 6 to take your road test. The waiting period can be reduced to 9 months if you take 
a qualifying driver training course. 
 
 
 

 

Any parent or guardian or even someone who wishes to volunteer at our school,

there is a new policy with CCRSB that volunteers even drivers to sporting events,

need to get a volunteer package from the office, complete and send back in.
