Clearview budgets for staff and student success in 2018-19

Board of Trustees supports maintaining and enhancing success for students and staff.

At meetings on April 19 and April 24 the Board of Trustees considered budget recommendations for enhancing student learning in the next school year 2018-19.  These recommendations from Clearview’s senior leadership were the result of extensive conversations with division and school leaders, and Trustees, since February.  

At the April 24 meeting, the Board provided the following budget directions toward ensuring Clearview students and staff are successful:

  • Clearview Public Schools and Wolf Creek Public Schools are starting a new partnership in 2018 and 2019 to provide more supports for high school students to be successful in graduation and diploma exams.

  • To support early learning the Board will allocate funds toward teaching staff to ensure full-day kindergarten can be supported at Stettler Elementary School.

  • Transportation Services will receive a supplement to maintain ride times and service levels for students, as well as addressing increases in costs from the carbon tax levy and fuel prices.

  • While a reduction is expected in the provincial funding for Family School Liaison Workers, Clearview will maintain this vital service for students through using Inclusive Education dollars.

  • Clearview will support school leadership development through a partnership with the University of Lethbridge.

  • Clearview is increasing supports for professional learning to support all staff towards growth and building capacity.

  • Clearview will provide a fund for staff wellness in 2018-19, continuing a focus to ensure Clearview is a “First Choice” employer

Moving forward, schools are now able to finalize their expenditure planning.  The budget process is planned to be finalized by the end of May.  Please click HERE and HERE for more details.
