Board Report June 2016

At our Board meeting last week outgoing Board members; Carole McCarthy, Steven Folkerts, Dana Aldom and Candy Foster were thanked for their years of service and new Board members; Adam Woelders, Leanne Dewitt, Danielle Stevenson, Jeff Boessenkool and Ian Thomas (continuing) were welcomed.

The Board commissioned two task forces to work over the summer and through the Fall. The first team will work on the next steps involved in a possible building project and a second task force was mandated to ensure that our school society’s constitution and bylaws will be compliant with the new Societies Act, which comes into effect on November 28, 2016.

The 2016-2017 Board Calendar was distributed, which includes a Fall Board Retreat with a focus on strategic planning, set for Saturday, September 17.

The Superintendent Search Committee reported that its work is well under way. The job description is being finalized, the ad has been posted and several possible candidates have been identified.

The Board is thankful for all LCS students and teachers for a great year, and congratulates the graduating class of 2016 for their achievements and for blessing the school community for the years you were here.

The Board is also deeply grateful for an amazing, supportive parent community. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a great summer vacation with your families and we look forward to seeing you again in September.
