In November 2017 the NDP government passed Bill 24 which is designed to strengthen supports for students wishing to create or join gay-straight alliances (GSAs) or queer-straight alliances (QSAs) at their schools. This legislation comes into effect April 1, 2018 and requires all school divisions in Alberta to have specific policy in support of Bill 24. In order to comply with provincial legislation we are making Westwind Policy 307.0 available to the public in its draft form.
Policy 307.0 is available on the BOARD section of our website under POLICIES. You can also access it directly by clicking HERE.
Currently the structure and content of all Westwind policies is under review and will be converted into a new format and structure by the end of the current school year.
