The Board of Trustees of Palliser Regional Schools is considering a draft policy on “Safe and Caring Learning Environments” and is inviting public and staff input.
The draft is consistent with Bill 10, “An Act to Amend the Alberta Bill of Rights to Protect our Children.” The document is designed to protect students and staff against discrimination based on race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability and other protected human rights
A copy of the draft policy is found on Palliser’s website at http://goo.gl/3rKhR1.
Feedback can be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Central Office by regular mail at #101 3305 18 Avenue North, Lethbridge, AB T1H 5S1.
Please submit feedback by March 9 for consideration at the Board of Trustees next regular meeting March 15.
Alberta Education has asked all school jurisdictions to submit their policies in compliance with Bill 10 to the department no later than March 31. The board expects to hold a special meeting in late March to finalize the policy for submission to Alberta Education by that date.
