Education Minister announces provincial funding for student transportation
Education Minister, Mike Bernier announces new Student Transportation Fund of 14.7 million. School Districts across the province must submit a plan to apply for the funding and any school district charging fees for transportation must eliminate those fees to be eligible. School District No.59 (Peace River South) will review the application details and decide on the best use for the additional funds.
The Board of Education of School District No.59 is circulating Policy and Regulation 4555: Safety of Students (Including Higher Risk Activities) for review. Note: Policy and Regulation 4490: Higher Risk Activities with Students is now combined into Policy and Regulation 4555 and will longer exist after approval by the Board. Any feedback may be made in writing to Candace Clouthier (email@example.com) before September 9th, 2016.
