Education Week 2015
April 19 to 25

"Schools are the pillars of our communities. They are bricks and mortar that come to life to form a vibrant meeting place to serve the needs of students and the community.

Schools as Communities is the idea that schools aren’t a part of the community but the embodiment of the community. While schools are places of learning, they also serve as centres for social activism, democratic debate, sporting events and spiritual awakening.

Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors recognizes the important role that teachers, education partners and our schools play in our communities and our society. Behind every good school are the teachers and staff that help to make a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.

This year’s theme recognizes Nova Scotia educators who work to support student development by engaging the community through service learning, community projects and co-operative education. It also acknowledges the important role that local and regional community organizations play in quality public education."

NEWS FROM the AVRSB

AVRSB Long-Range Outlook: Opportunity to Share Your Response AVRSB invites your response to its Long-Range Outlook, a 10-year planning document that examines all schools in our region.  This document was presented at the April 1, 2015 AVRSB Regular Board Meeting. It takes into account enrolment and demographic trends, programming, building use, and capacity and maintenance of all schools in AVRSB. Long Range Outlooks are a new provincial requirement for school boards, and will be updated annually to reflect current and developing circumstances in schools.

We invite you to download and read the draft AVRSB Long-Range Outlook (available at www.avrsb.ca), and send your responses to feedback@avrsb.ca on or before May 15, 2015.

An information session on the Long-Range Outlook is planned for the evening of April 29 and is open to all interested individuals. More information on this session will be posted here soon.
 

 

Important Information from AVRSB Transportation Division:
When AVRSB announces “bus driver discretion” in the morning, this means that a school bus driver may decide not to travel on a road if conditions are not safe. When a bus driver makes this decision during their morning bus run, the bus willnot travel that road during the afternoon run unless AVRSB Transportation staff decide otherwise and notify the school office. This also applies if a bus route does not operate at all in the morning. In short, unless you are otherwise notified, if a bus does not travel on a road in the morning, it will not be travelling that road in the afternoon.
 

 

AVRSB Volunteers in School Policy

The AVRSB has had a Volunteers in Schools Policy since 1999. As stated in this policy, the Board takes its obligation seriously to ensure safe environments for learning by taking all reasonable steps to minimize risks and threats to students. Because student safety is a top priority, in January 2015, this policy underwent an extensive review to ensure that any potential gaps in practice are closed or minimized. All recommendations for change were presented to our school community members and was circulated to our school stakeholders for the opportunity to respond to the proposed changes and to provide further input. To highlight some of the changes:
* clearly defines volunteers versus visitors;
* requires volunteers to complete a standard application form for any volunteering;
* will continue to require the completion of Criminal Records

Check (including the Vulnerable Sector) and Child Abuse Registry checks
prior to working with students but will now require re-checks be completed every (3) three years; and, * as of January 8, 2015, will require all current volunteer to renew their Criminal Records Check (including the Vulnerable Sector) and Child Abuse Registry if it has been over (3) three years since it was last completed.

The recommended changes to the Volunteers in Schools policy are not to discourage volunteering in the AVRSB. It is to employ the best practices to ensure our policy is as effective as possible for decreasing the chances of student harm from volunteers. We will be reminding our volunteers throughout the remainder of the school year so that we are well prepared for such events, as Class Trips.
