West Royalty Home and School Association's Response to the Education Governance Commission

The West Royalty Home and School Executive plans to address the Prince Edward Island Education Governance Commission.  A discussion paper has been developed - click here to view. The two main purposes for this discussion paper are: 1) to provide background information about education governance in Prince Edward Island and education trends in other jurisdictions and 2) to seek input on a series of questions that will define the framework of the education system in PEI (who should do what and how should things be done?).

We would like to submit our ideas as a collective group, representing the opinion of the entire school community.  If you have anything to add to these discussion questions, please contact Wendy Miller or Denise Bulger with your comments and/or willingness to join our committee.

The deadline for submissions is in December, so we would like to get on this as soon as possible.

Thank You,

Wendy Miller, President
Denise Bulger, Past President
