Community Partnerships

We believe in the importance of collaborative strategies and partnerships that have the capacity to bring all the community's resources together to support the learning and development of each student.
The Purpose of the Ministry of Education Community Planning and Partnerships (CPP) Guideline March 2015 is to encourage school boards to reach out to community organizations to share planning information with community organizations on a regular basis. This allows school boards and other entities to work together to the benefit of the board, students, and the community, and to optimize the use of public assets owned by school boards.
