Board Meeting set for June 29, 2017 to meet government’s deadline for school and transportation fees.
On June 15, 2017, the Board of Trustees established a regular Board Meeting on June 29, 2017 at 10:00am to discuss and approve the draft policy and fee schedule for submission to the Alberta Government by June 30, 2017.
On June 5, 2017 the Government of Alberta signed Bill 1: An Act to Reduce School Fees bringing the resulting School Fees and Costs Regulation and School Transportation Regulation into the operations for school boards.
As part of the requirements under the legislation and regulations, school divisions must have a board policy for school fees and transportation fees that must contain the information required under the regulations. Also, a schedule of fees for all schools and transportation must be approved by the end of June.
At the June 15, 2017 Clearview Public Schools Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees approved for consultation a new policy titled "Policy 31 Fees for Schools and Transportation". Comments or feedback on the proposed draft policy can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before June 28, 2017.
