Another day, another education-related announcement that shows the #UCP didn't do their homework and didn't listen to what we shared with them about the work school districts are already doing on career education and skilled trades. #abed #ableg #abvote
The NAIT Collegiate project was initiated through an agreement between #EPSB, #ECSD, and #NAIT in 2014. We've been waiting for Blatchford redevelopment and also have had to prioritize high school construction in south #yeg because space needs there are dire.
Our district, #EPSB, also already offers the Career Pathways model to all students to help them begin thinking about life after high school from day 1. At this stage, they use My Blueprint to imagine their futures.

Last year, I did an interview with @MikeTheJourno about the GSA battle in the 2017 school board election. You can read that article here: dailyxtra.com/how-edmonton-b… #ableg #abvote #abed
At the end of the article, I mused: Will the UCP [United Conservative Party] include a repeal of the bill in their platform, or have we finally moved past this?”

It's quite clear now that we haven't.
And I don't really know why any party wants to re-fight this battle again during the provincial election, especially with how decisive the results were in #yegvote and how badly their proxy candidates lost on the issue.

I want to talk about covering the cost of enrolment growth through finding efficiencies in administration. Trustees think about this a lot. Here's an #epsb report on operational efficiency for 2018/19 (we do this annually). 1/13 #abed #ableg #abvote epsb.ca/media/epsb/our…
As you can see, we look hard at our internal practices and seek external partnerships to improve our use of operational resources, especially when it comes to district administration. It's an important bit of our fiduciary responsibility as trustees to use public funds well. 2/13
We're pretty lean in #EPSB as admin goes. While the provincial cap is set at 3.6% of district budget, we run at 3.2%. That's lower than charities (where admin spending is usually seen as efficient at 5-10%). Admittedly, different sector, but it's enlightening to compare. 3/13
