                                                                    Update

     4.2 English as a Second Language (ESL) Update
                                                                    ESL Update
         Over the past two years, the District has benefitted
         significantly from the work of Nancy Brown, the ESL
         Lead Teacher. The ESL Lead Teacher position was
         established to provide support to schools in addressing
         the needs of their ESL learners. Based upon the work


June 15, 2010                                                                      Page 1 
 
            of the District’s ESL Committee at the time, and
            discussions with administrators, the following goals for
            the work of the ESL Lead Teacher were developed:

                 •   Coordination of ESL support services at the
                     District Level
                 •   Identification of assessment strategies and tools
                 •   Resource development and access
                 •   Professional development/training

            Director of Student Services Cynthia Parr indicated all
            four of these goals have been successfully addressed
            and, although the need for support will continue,
            schools feel much more capable of identifying
            student needs and developing effective programming to
            meet those needs. Cynthia introduced Nancy, who
            presented data and anecdotal information that
            supported the progress towards meeting the goals
            above.

            ESL contact teachers Jennifer LeGrandeur and Judith
            Muenier were also in attendance to present some of
            the successes of the program.

                 Capacity Building for Children, Youth and Families
                 in Schools project will receive funding for the
                 2011/12 and 2012/13 school years. This is an
                 extension of two years from the original three year
                 funding commitment that was to expire in June
                 2011.
                 The original funding enabled the District to
                 establish Making Connections programs in
                 Westminster, Buchanan and Fleetwood Bawden
                 elementary schools. The Making Connections
                 Workers have been instrumental in supporting
                 families to access services in the community. The
                 program has been cited as an excellent example of
                 a cross ministry initiative providing wrap-a-round
                 services for families.
                 District Counseling Coordinator Lisa McMullin, who
                 supervises the Making Connections programs, and
                 Making Connections Worker Tracy Erickson-
                 Driscoll have been invited to deliver a presentation
                 about the Making Connections program at the
                 national conference of the Canadian Association of
                 School Administrators in Quebec City in July.
                 Given the proven success of existing Making
                 Connections programs in some of the District
                 elementary schools, administration continues to
                 seek funding sources so that a program can be
                 established in all schools. The immediate priority is
                 to establish programs in the three west Lethbridge
                 elementary schools.

                 The Board expressed its appreciation to Lisa
                 McMullin, District counselling Coordinator, for her
                 role in accessing funding to support the Making
                 Connections programs.

Re:   Fast Forward High School Completion Initiative


Background
For the 2009 – 2010 school year, Alberta Education provided a High School Completion
Grant to all school jurisdictions in the province. The grant that was provided to our
district was used to develop a high school completion initiative called Fast Forward. The
primary goal of this initiative was to seek out and provide support to those students who
left school prior to completing their high school program.

 Key to this project was the hiring of a teacher with a high school background in
counselling. We were most fortunate to be able to hire JoAnn St. John, a former
counsellor at LCI, to the position. JoAnn’s experience and expertise have been
invaluable to the success of Fast Forward. She has built connections with schools,
community agencies and district staff in an effort to provide options for students to
complete high school or to transition to post-secondary institutions. Through her work,
she has connected with a number of students, 26 of whom are currently enrolled in Fast
Forward. It is anticipated that these students will earn approximately 175 credits by
August 30th, 2010.

JoAnn will provide the Board with a presentation on the success of the program to date.



Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of Trustees receive this presentation as information.


Respectfully submitted,

Wendy Fox
                                                                    Lethbridge School District No. 51

                                        A High School Completion Initiative
                                                  “FastForward”

Description
Lethbridge School District #51 developed an initiative for a High School Completion Recovery Program in January
2010. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to provide former high school students, who did not graduate, an
opportunity to complete their high school education and receive an Alberta High School Diploma and/or
transition to further studies at a post-secondary institution.

District high schools are key participants in this initiative, as well as a wide range of community and educational
agencies. A district student support advisor (teaching professional position) will coordinate and deliver this program
to eligible individuals over the age of sixteen, who have a desire and commitment to complete their high school
education.

Each student will have an individual learning plan to support their high school completion. They must receive the
prior approval of the administration of the accepting high school(s) before they are registered for courses or
programs within that school.

An anticipated outcome of this initiative is to lower the high school drop-out rates and increase high school
completion rates within Lethbridge School District # 51. The district recognizes that achievement of a high school
diploma contributes to the individual’s potential for not only personal economic viability, but also contributes to the
potential to be a valued contributing member of our community and Canadian society.


Rationale/Background
This initiative was developed with reference and attention to Alberta Education’s High School Completion Strategy
Framework, Fall 2009. From information presented in this framework,

We know that:
   • A student’s decision to leave school early can result from a variety of factors related to the individual,
      school, family and /or community and is often the result of a process of disengagement.
   • No single factor can accurately predict who might be at-risk of leaving school early.

Research indicates that:
    • There is no single solution to prevent students from leaving school early.
    • Approaches that are comprehensive, holistic and broadly-based have shown promise to support high school
        completion.

Experience shows that:
   • There must be collaborative and coordinated actions by all to address the issue of leaving school early.
   • Strategies must consider the local context.


Five core strategies are identified:
    1. Personalized Learning – provides a structured and responsive approach to each student’s abilities and
        interests, where students are helped to feel greater ownership of their participation, progress, and
        achievement.
    2. Successful Transitions – improve linkages between school and work; and then between high school
        completion and post-secondary training and/or education.
                                                                      Lethbridge School District No. 51
                                                                                 Regular Meeting – June 29, 2010
                                                                                                        Enclosure #4.1

    3.   Collaborative Partnerships – increase collaboration for effective delivery of wrap-around services, which
         minimize redundancy and increase positive outcomes for students and their families.
    4.   Positive Connections – promote a sense of belonging, and reinforce regular attendance and motivation to
         learn.
    5.   Tracking Progress – provides structured monitoring of progress, motivation for completion, and
         opportunities to explore employment options and/or further studies at a post-secondary level.


Tasks of the “FastForward” Initiative Student Support Advisor
   • Determine who may be eligible for this initiative. This information will be obtained in conjunction with
        district high schools, through the Alberta Education Extranet website, and if necessary, records from other
        jurisdictions, provinces and countries outside of Canada.
   • Act as a resource hub for various programs within the Lethbridge community that support and deliver
        programs which enhance and engage youth in high school completion and transition to studies at a post-
        secondary institution.
   • Meet with individual student candidates to assess academic, socio-economic, and physical needs of
        individual students and to identify goals.
   • Having needs and goals in the forefront, co-create a plan for high school completion or transition to a post-
        secondary institution.
   • Have ongoing contact in order to support, monitor and track progress and eventual high school completion
        and/or transition. (Since this is the core of the initiative, it is important to note that the contact process will
        be a problem-solving circular model and not necessarily linear.)
   • Link students to appropriate Lethbridge School District #51 and community resources if necessary.
   • Parental contact and involvement will be encouraged and implemented when feasible.
   • If appropriate to student needs, create and implement specific and/or ongoing small groups for support and
        motivation of high school completion. This may be implemented in conjunction with various community
        agencies, such as the Outreach and Education Branch of Lethbridge Family Services, Family Centre, and/or
        Alberta Mental Health and Addiction Services.
   • Act as a support and advisor for high school completion and further post-secondary studies.

Process
    • The Student Support Advisor, in consultation with district high schools, compiles a list of those students
        who have withdrawn from high school prior to receiving their high school diplomas. (At this point the
        general focus will be on those who are under the age of 19 years and who have only to earn fifteen or fewer
        credits for their diploma. However, all students who have left high school and who indicate a desire to be
        part of the initiative will be considered.)
    • Referrals to this initiative may also be accepted from agencies, families, friends, and other district staff.
    • The Student Support Advisor meets with eligible candidates to determine graduation requirements. These
        meetings may occur at the Education Centre, at a district high school, or at a public venue (e.g. Lethbridge,
        Public Library, local coffee shop)
    • Candidates will indicate a willingness to be part of the initiative and sign a release of information form. (At
        this point or earlier, it will be determined if parents are to be involved. For example, some candidates may
        be emancipated youth – and/or are living independently from their parents or guardians.)
    • A plan is co-created with the student, taking into account the academic, socio-economic, and physical needs
        of the student.
    • Goals and timelines are determined by the student and the Student Support Advisor. Future plans and post-
        secondary goals are discussed and incorporated into the current plan when feasible.
    • Student approves, signs and commits to the learning plan for high school completion.

Re:    Official Languages in Education Program


Background
The school district has received a grant of $296,000 over four years (2009/2010 to
2012/2013) to support the French as a Second Language program and the French
Immersion program. The district will receive $74,000 per year and will use the funds to
support the continuation of the French Lead Teacher position (Suzie Chambers), to
purchase literacy resources and provide professional development activities for
teachers involved in the French language programs.

The program’s goals are to:
   • increase student enrolments
   • help students develop levels of French language proficiency enabling them to
      achieve national and international recognition for their ability with the language.
   • increase contact with francophone communities to provide more opportunity for
      authentic utilization of the French language in the lives of students. These
      opportunities will include school twinning, e-mail correspondence, visits, work
      experience placements, and participation in special events.
   • form partnerships and foster relations with school jurisdictions and agencies
      interested in the enhancement of French language education.
   • recognize the value and the benefit of linguistic duality.

Lead Teacher Suzie Chambers will make a presentation to the Board regarding how the
program has, and will, benefit the District.

Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of Trustees receive this presentation as information.

Re:    Lethbridge Alternative Schools and Programs


Background
Beginning in the fall of 2010, Lethbridge Outreach High School, Community Outreach School
and Downtown LA will no longer be housed in the BLT Center building in downtown Lethbridge.
Downtown LA will be moving to Park Meadows Elementary School whereas the programs
currently offered by Community Outreach School and Lethbridge Outreach High School will be
integrated into a new high school named Victoria Park High School. Harbour House, CAMP,
Pitawani, Stafford Ridge, Downtown LA and Victoria Park will fall under the umbrella of
Lethbridge Alternative Schools and Programs whose administrative team will consist of Principal
Amber Darroch and Assistant Principals Rod Dueck and Wayne Pallett.

In preparation for these changes, the administrative team, in consultation with staff, have
worked diligently to build a vision for Victoria Park High School that will provide for programs
and services to meet the unique needs of a diverse group of students. This vision has been built
upon the successful foundations that have been created by Allan Watson High School,
Lethbridge Outreach High School, and Community Outreach School. Amber Darroch will
provide the Board with a report on the planning to date and will describe the many opportunities
in store for students at Victoria Park High School.



Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of Trustees receive this presentation as information.

Re:    Presentations to Jane O'Dea & Gary Heck

Background
Mr. Gary Heck is retiring as the Executive Director of the Southern Alberta Profession
Development Consortium (SAPDC) at the conclusion of this school year. Under Mr. Heck’s
guidance the last nine years, the SAPDC has increased the number of professional learning
opportunities for staff and parents in southern Alberta exponentially. Programs are offered
twelve months of the year, and range from full day or multi-day presentations to webinars or
video conferences designed to address specific needs in pedagogy. SAPDC has truly evolved
into a model organization for professional learning and new curriculum implementation. The
collaborative relationship between SAPDC and Lethbridge School District has been mutually
beneficial, with the District being able to provide facilities and seconded staff over the years.

Prior to his work with the SAPDC, Mr. Heck was a Reading Consultant, Director of Curriculum
and Director of Technology for our District. He is respected immensely by his colleagues in
education for his vision and ability to work collaboratively with all stakeholders.

Dr. Jane O’Dea is a Professor and has served as Dean in the Faculty of Education, University of
Lethbridge, since July 1, 2000. She has held the decanal position for ten years and ends her
term on June 30. Dr. O'Dea joined the University in 1990. She is an accomplished pianist and
vocal coach who holds Undergraduate degrees in Music and Education from the National
University of Ireland (1969 and 1970). At the University of Alberta, she completed her Masters
degree in Education (Philosophy of Education, Aesthetics) in 1983 and obtained her Doctoral
degree (Philosophy of Education, Aesthetics) in 1990.

Her award-winning teaching career spans more than 30 years and involves experiences in
Canada, Ireland, and England at the public school as well university graduate and
undergraduate levels. Dr. O'Dea received the University of Lethbridge Distinguished Teaching
Award in 1995.

Dr. O'Dea has given more than 30 papers or presentations at conferences and to colleagues
and published her research in such refereed journals as the Journal of Philosophy of Education
and the British Journal of Aesthetics.

Most recently, Dr. O’Dea was asked by the Minister of Education to serve as a member of the
Steering Committee for the Alberta Education Inspiring Education: A Dialogue with Albertans
initiative.

During her tenure as Dean she has worked tirelessly to ensure a strong partnership exists
between the University and all southern Alberta school jurisdictions.

The Alberta Teachers Association Local 41, represented by President Bev Witzke, and the
Lethbridge School District acknowledge the contributions to education in our District that Mr.
Heck and Dr. O’Dea have made, and will present each of them with a gift of appreciation.

Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board congratulate and thank Mr. Gary Heck and Dr. Jane O’Dea for
their years of service to education.

I. Preamble

     In June 2007 the Superintendent of Schools, Lethbridge School District No. 51,
     requested that the Director of Technology establish an inclusive, collaborative technology
     visioning process for the District starting in the 2007/2008 school year as a means to
     articulate a vision statement along with recommendations for the implementation of
     technology.

     In January 2010 the Advisory Committee reconvened to refresh the Technology Vision
     White Paper based on work completed, work-in-progress, and identified priorities.

     The 2010 visioning process was structured to allow for:

         -   the formation of an Advisory Committee,

         -   the development of a priority setting worksheet,

         -   input from schools and departments on priorities,

         -   a data tally on the focus groups’ input,

         -   an objective analysis by an external consultant on key accomplishments and
             planning priorities for the District,

         -   revisions and edits to the context statements, recommendations and strategies
             for a critical review by the Advisory Committee,

         -   a Board review of the refreshed white paper (March 2010)

         -   a presentation of the refreshed white paper to the District Admin Committee, with
             subsequent dialogue on required revisions and edits,

         -   the Superintendent’s recommendations to the Board (i.e. Annual Education Plan
             and District Budget implications), and

         -   the alignment of a Technology Department planning to the adopted
             recommendations and strategies.




                                                                                   Page 1 of 7

                                                                                        Page 4 of 7
V. Planning & Management

  Context

        Equitable access and evergreening continue to be identified as high priorities. Equitable student
        access was addressed through the Phase I evergreening project in middle schools and high
        schools (August to December 2009). In addition, desktop PC and laptop transfers to elementary
        schools addressed equitable student access.

        Currently, there is insufficient evidence of a sustainable, funded evergreening program in the
        District for innovative classroom assets (data projectors, sound systems, wireless keyboards/mice
        and smart boards/airliners. Also, the proposed technology support model for the 2010/2011 school
        year will provide equitable support at the school level.

  Recommendations

  1.1       District planning, budgeting and reporting shall continue to ensure on-going District and school
            commitments to equitable learner access to required technology and infrastructure in all
            schools as a means to enable the delivery of the ICT outcomes in the Alberta Education core
            program of studies, CTS programs, fine arts and physical education programs.

  1.2       The District shall continue to sustain a funded evergreening program based on a
            comprehensive asset valuation with a six-year life cycle for the following assets: personal
            computers, laptops, servers, switches, routers, uninterruptible power supplies, printers,
            wireless access points, videoconference technologies, core instructional software, network
            headend applications and technical management tools, and classroom multimedia
            technologies.

  1.3       The District shall maintain detailed inventory records by school on software licensing and
            hardware inventory to ensure copyright compliance, access to base and extended warranties,
            and equitable learner access among District schools.

  1.4       The District shall continue to implement a technology department planning model to address
            overall recommendations and strategies as a result of the technology visioning process within
            the District. This business plan shall incorporate enterprise management of the District
            network (i.e. security and required bandwidth), personal computers, servers and service (e.g.
            standards and standard solutions) and shall be reflective of promising practices identified in
            ICT Leadership research conducted by Alberta Education. (Items such as software and
            hardware, whether purchased with school funds or District funds, should be vetted or
            purchased through the technology department to maintain system standards and allow for
            support – see Recommendation 3.1, Key Strategy 3.1.2.)

  1.5       For the 2010/2011 school year, the District shall restructure technology support services based
            on a centralized model at the District level to ensure equitable access to technology services.
            All technology support positions shall report to the Director of Technology.

  Key Strategies
  1.1.1     As part of the District’s three-year planning and reporting cycle, proactive planning shall
            document a District-wide technology/infrastructure upgrade in elementary schools (i.e. Phase
            II) commencing in September 2012 to address Recommendation 1.1. This plan shall include
            all known revenue sources (e.g. research grants, one-time Alberta Education infrastructure
            and technology grants, one-time Alberta Education CTS grants. In addition the AEP and
            subsequent AEPs shall document a District-wide technology/infrastructure upgrade in middle
            schools and high schools (i.e. Phase III) in October 2015), and related yearly evergreening
            funds shall be held in a reserve account (key strategy 1.1.2).

  1.1.2     As part of the annual budget development, Business Affairs shall complete a preliminary cost
            estimates to set aside sufficient yearly evergreening funds to address Recommendation 1.2.

  1.1.3     As part of yearly planning via a District technology committee, the technology plan shall be
            reviewed to address changing student enrollments, and to cover all aspects of technology


                                                                                               Page 5 of 7
             acquisition, implementation and support with a review of the definition of “core technologies”
             due to changing pedagogical and business needs to address Recommendations 1.3 and 1.4.




VI. Instructional Support – professional development through job-
    embedded time and time beyond classroom assignments

   Context

         Changing pedagogical practice, teacher resource sharing and school/District staff
         inservice are identified as high priorities by focus groups. The education technology
         leadership research grant provides a two-year education technology coordinator position.

         Currently, there is insufficient evidence of a sustainable, funded and aligned instructional
         support model for staff to address ICT outcomes.


   Recommendations

   2.1       District and school planning, budgeting and reporting shall acknowledge ongoing District and
             school commitments to instructional supports for teachers and support staff through a
             permanent Education Technology Coordinator position.

   2.2       As part of the District’s Annual Education Plan, the District in collaboration with the ATA PD
             committee shall develop a comprehensive professional development plan that includes as one
             key component, professional growth opportunities that support the infusion of ICT outcomes
             across Programs of Study. (e.g. the new Social Studies Program)




   Key Strategies

   2.1.1     As part of the District’s and Schools’ Three-Year Annual Education Plans (AEP), proactive
             planning shall document key professional growth activities (e.g. Schools’ professional growth
             plans) to address Recommendations 2.1 and 2.2

   2.1.2     The District shall implement a designated lead teacher model in technology as part of the
             2009/2010 budget to organize and coordinate school and District level professional growth
             activities on curriculum implementation and technology to address Recommendations 2.1 and
             2.2.

   2.1.3     The District’s joint AISI/Education Technology Leadership projects shall continue to focus on
             three pillars: differentiated instruction, assessment for learning, and 21 century classrooms.
                                 st
             “Engaging our 21 century learners” will guide the District’s and schools’ planning for
             professional growth that identifies promising pedagogical practice. The International Society
             for Technology in Education (ISTE) essential conditions and NETS for teachers and
             administrators shall provide District direction to address Recommendation 2.2.




                                                                                                Page 6 of 7
VII.     Emerging & Evolving Technologies

   Context

         Assistive technologies, classroom multimedia technologies, student records,
         videoconferencing and wireless continue to be identified as current and/or future
         opportunities. Currently, all requisitions must be approved by the Director of Technology.


   Recommendations

   3.1       On identified technology initiatives, schools and Education Centre branches will continue to
             involve the Director of Technology for approval (as currently stated in the District’s Purchasing
             Policy), the Manager of Facilities regarding facilities coordination for instructional space
             modifications and the Director of Finance regarding financial planning and documentation to
             respective school /branch budgets for long-term evergreening commitments.


   Key Strategies


   3.1.1     As part of the Instruction Services Branches’ yearly planning with the Director of Technology,
             identified and approved initiatives will be funded (note evergreening and/or annual software
             maintenance) by the requestor and supported by the Technology Department to address
             Recommendation 3.1.


   3.1.2     As part of schools’ yearly planning with the Director of Technology, identified and approved
             initiatives (e.g. VOIP, teacher tablets or laptops, cable TV in the classroom, IP security
             cameras and server, IP hallway clocks and management appliance, Blackberries on the
             District BES server, HDMI matrix, digital audio matrix, HD videoconferencing) will be funded by
             the respective school (e.g. school budget and community-based funds) and supported by the
             Technology Department to address Recommendation 3.1 (note: implications for evergreening
             and/or annual software maintenance).


   3.1.3     As part of the District’s research project with Alberta Education on PASI, the SIRS multi-school
             and Teacher/Home Logic modules (note: increased software maintenance as part of the
             annual operating budget; evergreening as part of key strategy 1.1.1) will be supported by the
             Technology Department to address Recommendation 3.1.


   3.1.4     As part of the Phase I technology upgrade for middle schools and high schools, a
             videoconference suite per school funded by Alberta Education ear-marked grants for
             videoconference will be procured and supported by the Technology Department to address
             Recommendation 3.1.


   3.1.5     As part of the Phase II technology upgrade for elementary schools, an 11.N wireless network
             per elementary school will be to address equitable learner access (Recommendation 1.1.


   3.1.6     As part of yearly planning, future announcements of one-time, ear-marked technology funding,
             or grant funding, will be targeted to emerging/evolving technology initiatives.

29th, 2011. Students will be given the chance to experience Shakespeare in the Globe
theatre, West End Musicals in their original venues, art galleries, live performances and
museums. The educational benefits of the trip and the proposed itinerary are attached.
The estimated cost per student is $3,060.00. Fundraising opportunities will be available
to students to offset the cost of the trip.


Recommendation
It is recommended that the Winston Churchill High School (WCHS) international trip to
London, England and Paris, France from April 21st to April 29th, 2011 be approved on
the condition that all district policies and procedures are strictly followed.


Respectfully submitted,

Wendy Fox
Winston Churchill High School
Fine Arts Tour
London, England
April 2011
Educational Benefits

This educational excursion will extend opportunities to students to bring various fine arts
to life through seeing, experiencing, and interacting. Students will be given the chance to
travel to another continent where they will experience Shakespeare in the Globe theatre,
West End Musicals in their original venues, art galleries, live performances and
museums. This in addition to traditional sight seeing tours of London will provide a
unique once in a life time opportunity.

London offers a rare diversity of fine arts. With its rich history, England affords students
the chance to see the roots of so much of our popular culture. This, mixed with new
foods, variations in language, and customs will provide a spectacular experience for any
student. In addition to London, the group will take a two day excursion to Paris. While in
Paris they will participate in a guided sightseeing tour as well as a walking tour.

We hope this type of exposure will be inspirational to our young artists from Churchill.

Thanks for your consideration

Re:   Policy 602.5 Knowledge and Employability Skills Courses

Background
Policy 602.5 addresses the offering of K & E courses in the District. The policy was
reviewed by the Policy Advisory Committee in 2007/08. In 2009 the Board made a
decision to offer K & E courses at all neighbourhood high schools beginning with grade
9 in 2009/10 and adding one grade in each subsequent year. Coinciding with that
decision was the plan to amalgamate Allan Watson High School and Lethbridge
Outreach High School into Victoria Park High School in August 2010.

These changes necessitate a change in the policy to represent current practice.

Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board amend Policy 602.5 Knowledge and Employability
Skills Courses as presented or as amended.

Re:    Draft of 2010-11 to 2012-13 Three Year Education Plan

Background
Alberta Education requires that each school jurisdiction develop a Three Year Education
Plan (3YEP) which incorporates the vision, priorities, and strategies developed by the
Board in consultation with all stakeholders in the District. Prior to this year it was
required that the 3YEP be formally approved by the Board and submitted to Alberta
Education by June 30 of the preceding year. Beginning in 2010/11 the formally
approved 3YEP is to be combined with the Annual Education Results Report and
posted on the jurisdiction website by November 30, 2010.

Notwithstanding the November timeline, it is important for the District to have a Draft of
the 3YEP in place prior to the beginning of the school year, as it serves as a template
for professional learning activities and financial planning in the District. The 3YEP may
be updated in the fall after the provincial achievement test and diploma exam results for
2009/10 are available.

Included with this memo is a Draft of the 3YEP. Executive Assistant Ms. Joanne Siljak
has been instrumental in coordinating the production of the 3YEP. She has received
input from all the departments within District administration. The priorities identified in
the plan were developed from input received at the annual Town Hall Meeting, and from
consultation with District and school administration.

Recommendation:
It is recommended the Board receive the Draft of the 2010-11 to 2012-13 Three Year
Education Plan, and provide administration with comment or suggestions that could be
implemented into the final 3YEP that will be presented to the Board at its November 30,
2010 meeting.

Further it is recommended that the Board formally thank Ms. Joanne Siljak for her
outstanding effort in coordinating the production of the Draft 3YEP.

Re:    Acknowledgement of Excellence

Background:
The Board has a long standing practice of acknowledging the efforts of students and
staff whose commitment to excellence has resulted in outstanding achievement. Details
of accomplishments of note are provided as information. Congratulations to the
following District staff and students:

Ira Provost, the District First Nations, Métis and Inuit Coordinator, received a
Community Leadership Award from the Aboriginal Council of Lethbridge.

Andrea Kwan a student at LCI is one of eight Alberta high school students who will
finish high school at campuses around the world thanks to Grant MacEwan United

ways to adopt healthy lifestyles. Mike Mountain Horse is growing rapidly, and as a
result there is a lot of pressure on gymnasium use. The intent of this grant is to provide
another location in the school for staff to implement “Daily Physical Activity” by
converting an existing classroom into a fitness area. Fitness centers of various types
will be set up around this room, and the grant will allow the school to purchase a range
of activities to meet this need. The grant application was coordinated by the school’s
“Healthy Lifestyles Teacher”, Tamara Van Cleave.

5.0   UPDATE FROM THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

6.0   COMMUNICATION

      6.1 Grand Opening Invitation to Blackfoot Elders

          The request to include the Blackfoot Elders came from a staff member of District
          51 with the suggestion that an elder blessing of the facility could also be offered.

          After discussion it was agreed that the purpose of the grand opening was to
          celebrate the partnership. Holy Spirit School Division will be holding a separate
          event on September 29 with Bishop Henry officiating a blessing of their facility.
          It was further agreed that the Blackfoot Elders would receive an invitation but the
          general structure of the grand opening will remain as is with individual partners
          choosing to do a separate event if they wish.

          Nicole will be asked to include recognition of tribal elders during the
                                                          Lethbridge School District No. 51

Statement of issue and / or area of report:
Committee meeting

Background

We met with the group and confirmed the trip will take place on Nov 2 - 4th 2010 and will
be staying at the Matrix Hotel. Don Lussier, Jan Foster and I will attend (with the
approval of the voters). We reviewed communications with government ministers and
MLA’S (we commented on Dave Hancock’s visit as others met with other ministers
when they were here on tour). Team Lethbridge will be putting together a brochure
much like the last one and we are to submit a page about the organization and a
paragraph about the individuals that are attending. They are also putting together a
video and we are to do a 45 second segment which they have a camera crew booked
for July 20 & 21. We need to get our message together and decide who will be the
person on camera (board chair perhaps). We are also to submit six high quality stills of
our district for the PowerPoint. We also put our names beside the ministers that we
would like to meet with so that a schedule can be created. It was a good meeting. The
next meeting is September 10, 2010.

Keith Fowler
