YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD
IS WORKING FOR YOU

Local citizens have had an active voice in shaping the educational system that we have in the Prairie Spirit School Division. Over the years local voices have made local choices, resulting in huge benefits to our children. Some decisions that were made locally are: 

  • offering a K-12 French Immersion program; 
  • providing a wide variety of technical vocational programs to all 8 high schools in the division;
  • implementing colony blended delivery programming, which has 18 courses taught by 2.12 FTE teachers to 91 students at 11 colony schools;
  • providing band, drama and visual arts programming;
  • partnering with local groups to operate daycare and early years programming in our schools;
  • providing stakeholders the opportunity for meaningful involvement in the creation of the PSSD Strategic Plan;
  • participating division in the mRLC foundation math project for grades 4 to 9;
  • collaborating with all municipal governments on a number of projects, for example doctor recruitment initiatives, the electoral boundary revision submission and joint facility usage agreements;
  • providing additional funding above Provincial support for our Special Education Programs;
  • implementing recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission;
  • partnering with a number of community groups to support families.
