A parental engagement task force is set to undertake 15 virtual town halls in Manitoba over the coming weeks to hear from the public about ways to improve local engagement amid K-12 education reforms.
Education Minister Cliff Cullen announced Tuesday the province’s plans to implement reforms with the public’s input via regional town halls, workshops with parent advisory councils and school leaders, and a series of advisory groups.
The task force, which will lead the town halls and workshops, will be composed of MLAs, parents, and school and community leaders. Its membership will be announced within the next two weeks, Cullen said.
Information about the town halls will be available at bettereducationmb.ca.
