Northland School Division Community Engagement Discussions

The Government of Alberta is committed to working collaboratively with members of the Northland School Division community to take action and help ensure a positive future for students of the division. Part of this commitment means working to restore the division to an elected board of trustees in fall 2017, to coincide with the next school board elections.

To ensure communities have an opportunity to have their voices heard, and to gather input on the future governance of the division, Alberta Education is holding a series of community engagement discussions.

To support attendance, there will be events in several communities across Northland School Division. We invite you to join us at one of the following sessions:
