Board of Education Priorities and Goals/Continuous Improvement Report

Priorities and Goals 2012 - 2016

The Board's priorities and goals for 2012 - 2016 are listed in this three-page PDF document.

 

Continuous Improvement Reports

Continuous Improvement Reports provide an overview of work done during the school year to further the division's strategic goals. The report is created within the provincial government's Continuous Improvement Framework, which is the strategic planning tool used by all boards of education in Saskatchewan to advance the provincial priorities of:

 

  • Higher levels of literacy and achievement
  • Equitable opportunities for all students
  • Smooth transitions into and through the system, and
  • Strong system-wide accountability and governance.

 

Our first two reports were created as PowerPoint presentations, displaying two slides per page. The 2011-2012 report is in a standard format.

 

For the 2012-2013 school year, the Ministry of Education required all Saskatchewan school divisions to follow a standard format for their annual reports. The 72-page report below includes our audited financial statements.

Election of Trustees

Byelection to be held October 29, 2014

A byelection is scheduled to be held October 29, 2014 for the vacant Saskatoon seat on the board. The spot became vacant when Fred Wesolowski resigned his seat.

Nominations for the byelection will officially open in September. Information for prospective candidates is available in the booklet below.

Trustee Candidate Information Booklet

 

Who is eligible to become a Catholic board trustee?

A person is qualified to be nominated as a candidate and to hold office as a member of the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools Board of Education if he/she is an elector of the school division on the day of the election. An elector is one who is:

  • a Canadian citizen;
  • 18 years of age;
  • a resident of the school division for at least three months and a resident of Saskatchewan for six months; and
  • a Catholic.

Qualification as an elector has no connection to owning property or declaring taxes to a school board.

In order to run for the Catholic school board, you must be Roman Catholic, and all of the people signing your nomination paper must be Roman Catholic.

 

An employee of the Board of Education may seek nomination and election if he/she has first obtained a leave of absence in accordance with subsection 80(1) of The Labour Standards Act. If that employee is elected, he/she is deemed to have resigned from the position of employment on the day before the day on which he/she is declared elected unless for any reason the results of the election are overturned.

 

Previous elections

The last school board election was held on October 24, 2012, in conjunction with Saskatoon's municipal election. 

Please visit this City of Saskatoon webpage for election results.
