Shuniah Strategic Plan

The Ministry of Education  has launched its Plan to Strengthen Rural and Northern Education and has made a commitment that decisions about the future of our schools consider a range of community and student impacts.           

                                             YOUR   INPUT   IS   NEEDED!!  

The Ministry is looking for feedback on the proposed Pupil Accommodation Review Guideline (PARG) and the Community Planning and Partnerships Guideline (CPPG). Changes to both plans are aimed at better support for:

  • Quality Education;
  • Sustainable use of school space in rural communities; and
  • Decision-making around school closures.

We are asking Shuniah residents to review the proposed changes and provide input as it relates to McKenzie Public School.  Parents, students and stakeholders have until December 6, 2017 to provide feedback. 

    Click here for link to Ministry of Education site for input.
