As you know, Public School Wards are huge! Between 9 Trustees we represent 20-30 communities each. We also collaborate with with many other elected officials who we share representation with.
My ward, Ward F overlaps 4 provincial districts, and thus I’m quite excited for this upcoming provincial election.
As your Public School Trustee, I’ve been seeking opportunities to meet with these individuals and share with them the challenges and opportunities related to public education in our communities. Through our provincial education partners, the Alberta School Board Associaiton (ASBA) and the Public School Boards’ Association of Alberta, we have also sought out opportunities to connect with all of the parties before the provincial election.
