Ministry of Education Rural Education Regional Open House in Revelstoke, Monday, April 3rd, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Revelstoke-area families are being encouraged to attend an open house on Monday, April 3rd, 2017, to share their ideas on how to transform rural education in British Columbia.
Ministry of Education staff will host the event to facilitate interested British Columbians and organizations expressing their thoughts on rural education, sharing stories around the importance of rural schools and rural educational programs in a casual setting. Participants will engage in a more-formal facilitated discussion for the last hour of the meeting. This open house is part of the public engagement process to help develop a rural education strategy by the summer of 2017.
All feedback received will help government shape a final report on an integrated rural education strategy, including recommendations for the future. The strategy will aim to find long-term solutions for the unique challenges facing rural school districts and communities, including looking at the important social, cultural and economic roles that schools play for small communities.
Please come to the Regional Open House being held at:
Revelstoke Secondary School
Monday, April 3rd, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm
We hope to see you there!
