Managing Space For Students
Guiding Principles for School Planning
These principles guide our decisions for accommodating students:
- Youngest students go to school closest to home
- The best use of space for learning/programming
- Responding to programming needs
- Minimal student transition points; generally moving from school to school with their classmates.
Involving the community is a critical part of the decision making process at the CBE. It’s important that our community has a chance to get involved and provide input on issues that affect them. We work with parents, students, staff and community members to share information, generate new ideas, discuss practical solutions and gather feedback by having a comprehensive and thoughtful engagement process.
We use a variety of tools and strategies to help with the engagement process, which may include:
- Focus groups
- Focused conversation
- Open houses
- Your Voice
