Board meetings rotate to encourage attendance

Parents encouraged to learn about school district happenings, in Fraser Cascade

School board meetings are held throughout the year and are open to the public.

Dr. Karen Nelson, superintendent of Fraser Cascade, said parents should feel welcome to attend any or all meetings, in addition to attending their their own schools’ Parent Advisory Council meetings.

Board meetings are at 7 p.m. and rotate around the district to encourage parents to attend at least one meeting.

In Hope, they meet at the District Education Office. Meetings there will be held on September 18, October 30, December 11, January 15, February 26, April 2, May 14 and June 25.

Meetings held in outlying schools this year are scheduled for October 9 at Agassiz elementary-secondary, November 20 at Agassiz Centre for Education, February 5 at Harrison Hot Springs elementary, April 23 at Boston Bar elementary-secondary and June 4 at Kent elementary.

Each meeting includes a presentation, often from a school administrator.

For detailed agendas for upcoming meetings, and minutes from past meetings, and much more parent and student information, visit the district website at www.sd78.bc.ca.
