School Board to Undergo Performance Review

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 @ 5:50 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Nearly a year and a half into their mandate, the Prince George School Board has unanimously agreed to a performance review.

“In order to learn, change and grow, a board performance review will identify what we are doing well, celebrate and build on our strengths and provide the information needed for improvement,” noted Trustee Sharel Warrington.

“Conducting a board performance review will provide the opportunity to set goals and objectives for the coming year.”

She said the review is also recommended in the Auditor General Report “as needing to be an important part of our governance responsibilities.”

The Board will consider engaging the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA) to facilitate the review prior the end of August, 2016.

“The BCSTA has facilitated a number of reviews for different districts across the province and they have been successful,” added Warrington.


Now if only we could do performance reviews on the teachers…

and on the postees

Further to my comment on “school ranking given negative review”, axman’s comment is a good example of a comment that adds nothing to the new story. This news story is about the performance review of a SCHOOL BOARD not teachers.

Typical deflection comment that takes a cheap shot at teachers, but offers nothing about the topic at hand which is School Board Performance Review. Just offering my opinion is all.

    You are quite full of yourself aren’t you? Your opinion is fine but heaven forbid someone with an different opinion gives theirs? Does that sum you up or what?

    Well, there have been a lot of cheap shots at teachers, however, they DO have a federation that could not pay them any strike pay, they can’t agree with anyone, and it is up to the teachers to guide their federation in to negotiations which are fair for both sides. It is unfortunate that the BCTF tend to be a difficult group to appease, where others reach fair deals in very short amount of time.
    Having said that, school board review are a normal process that every government branch goes through and it’s really nothing new.

It sounds as though the trustees are aiming for transparency, and confirmation that they are doing the right things relating to their position as trustees of the school board.
Sounds good to me, providing the bcsta audits are above board, not just rubber stamping the information they are given to review.
