The Board has revised their Safe and Caring Schools Policy to comply with the specifications of Bill 10. Some of the changes to the draft policy include:
- An enhanced focus on ensuring the rights, dignity, and safety of all students.
- Providing support for all minority groups, including the formation of clubs.
- An enhanced awareness of the need for confidentiality among teachers and counsellors.
We realize that there are many questions and concerns that parents and community members have around these issues. We will be releasing a set of videos about specific areas of concern in the next weeks. If you would like to submit your concerns or questions to the Board, you can write to Board@westwind.ab.ca
If you have comments that would be better suited for the Minister of Education, you can send those to:
