Early Learning Program provides great supports to students

Early Learning and Literacy Coordinator Wendy Coppock shared the learning excellence Clearview provides to 3 and 4-year old students in our early learning Start Right playschool program. Every Clearview school offering Kindergarten has a Start Right playschool program. These programs are aimed at providing language rich environments where children can play and learn. The students have fun with learning and receive strong supports that prepare them for Kindergarten and Grade 1. For more information, please click HERE and HERE.

Projected (Spring) Budget to continue supporting students and staff

The Alberta Government has announced that it will not present their 2019 budget before the April 16, 2019 election. School jurisdictions have been given an extension to June 30 to submit their Projected (Spring) Budgets to Alberta Education.

In preparation for the June 30 deadline, senior leadership will be engaging in budget conversations with division leaders, school leaders, and trustees to review opportunities and strategic initiatives for 2019-20 that will best support student success.

The budget process is planned to be finalized by the end of June.
