PRSD consults with residents

  • Print

The public is being asked to help steer the course of Prairie Rose School Division’s (PRSD) future.

All are welcome to attend a community consultation the division is holding at École St. Eustache on Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.

This is the third year the school division’s staff and trustees have held public sessions within the division to solicit responses to issues relating to the division’s budgetary priorities.

"We want to hear from local communities," said PRSD superintendent Terry Osiowy.

He said that all are welcome to attend as the division’s budget has tax implications for those who don’t have children attending school as well as for those who do.

École St. Eustache principal Fay Pahl said invitations have been extended to all students’ parents and caregivers. She hopes that other community members will also attend.

Claude Lachance, trustee for the St. Eustache area, said, by having public discussions before the annual budget is set, the trustees and the division’s staff can better serve the public.

"It is their tax dollars," he said.

Osiowy said there are three questions to be discussed at the public meetings, to be held in Roland and Carman as well as St. Eustache. They are:

• What types of resources and programs could Prairie Rose School Division make available to our students and staff to ensure that a safe and caring learning environment is in place and that student diversity is recognized, respected and supported in our schools?
• What are some of the barriers in our division that prevent and/or limits students from having equitable access to an education that maximizes their opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills?
• What are some programs and/or personnel supports that PRSD should consider implementing and/or resourcing to ensure that our high school students not only graduate, but that they are also prepared for life after graduation?
