At a Board meeting today, Trustee Lisa Davis submitted her written resignation which is effective immediately.
As a Board of Trustees, we represent, lead and serve the citizens of Calgary. As an elected Board, we are comprised of seven individuals with diverse perspectives who come together with the common goal of supporting students and their success. Our responsibilities as a Board and Trustees is defined in the Education Act (section 33/34). We are confident that our current governance policies and procedures are fully compliant with legislation and strong governance practices.
The concerns expressed by Trustee Davis are not those of the Board. Through our policies, we strive to hold ourselves accountable to the principles of openness, transparency, and continuous improvement.
We look forward to moving on and working together to support students and public education in the City of Calgary. The Board of Trustees is committed to ensuring Wards 6 and 7 continue to be fully represented.
Media are invited to an availability where Board Chair Marilyn Dennis and Vice Chair Althea Adams will provide comment.
