Park West School Division has developed a plan for stakeholder engagement. It is adapted from the work of Jamie Vollmer who presented at the recent Manitoba School Board convention.
Jamie described The Great Conversation that is designed to encourage a positive, ongoing discussion between educators and the public. They produce an ongoing flow of positive communication that leads to the development of a community-wide culture committed to increasing student success.
The Great Conversation is easy to understand and undertake. No new money or personnel are required. The process is built to run on two separate but connected tracks – one formal and one informal.
An overview of each track is attached as well as suggested activities and a timeline for implementation. The proposal involves taking action immediately with the main implementation occurring during the 2018-2019 school year. Please click here to view the plan.
