PILLAR GOALS FOR 2016-17

As we start another school year, the Board of Directors have established the new goals for the pillars. This is done for each September and provides a focus for the year as the Directors work on achieving them during the year. A few of the goals have been carried over from last year since we were not able to complete them. Generally, we try not to have more than one or two goals per pillar so we are able to complete them.

You will note that the Facilities Pillar has numerous goals. We are working to have a meeting with SD 43 and we are hoping to come away from that meeting with a sense of direction that we will follow. It could go in a number of directions and that is the reason for the different goals we may have to try to achieve.
