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
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
firstname.lastname@example.org 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
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
* 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
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.
