Policy 1 - Division Foundational Statements

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, thank you to everyone who contributed to the development of our Policy 1, Division Foundational Statements.

We appreciate your feedback and received record levels of engagement with 175 people participating in our ThoughtExchange.  Many more individuals chose to speak to me in person, send an email, or participate by other means.

I would like to express our gratitude for you taking a moment to share your thoughts and ideas with us.  I can assure you that that the Board and Division Administration have read every single comment and incorporated a great deal of the feedback received into the final version of the document.  Through this careful reading of the feedback, we recognized that improvements needed to be made.  You can see these changes in the following documents:

  • Document 1 – The draft that was considered in the consultation process
  • Document 2 – The revised draft including footnotes that denote why a change was made and what source of feedback was considered in this change
  • Document 3 – The final version of the Policy 1 document

For those who would like to read a summary of the feedback received, you can view the results online.  

Once again, our sincere appreciation for your insights, thoughts and contributions.  Our new Policy 1 is truly reflective of the Foothills School Division community as a result of your engagement in this process.  On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Foothills School Division Team, thank you once again for your participation and voice in the development of this guiding document.

Best regards,

Chris Fuzessy
Superintendent of Schools
