In response to the the Board of Trustees’ request at the October 8, 2019 meeting, senior staff presented a consultation process. The following motion was approved: “that the Avon Maitland District School Board direct staff to proceed with a consultation process to consider Option A (grades 7 and 8 at Stratford Central and grades 9 to 12 at Stratford Northwestern), and Option B (grades 7 to 9 at Stratford Central and grades 10 to 12 at Stratford Northwestern); and that a Special Board meeting be held on November 19th wherein trustees will receive one delegation from each Stratford and area School Council.” Details on the consultation process can be found here.
Further to this, we will be hosting a joint School Council meeting on Wednesday November 6th, 2019 at 6:30pm in the SSES gymnasium. We invite all School Council members for Stratford and area schools (and interested parents or community members) to attend. At this meeting, the school organization models will be reviewed and the public consultation process will be launched.
Finally, each School Council from Stratford and area schools will be given the opportunity to have one delegation (presentation) to the Board of Trustees at a Special Board meeting, scheduled for November 19th at 6:30pm, in the SSES Library.
