PVNCCDSB Embarks On Ambitious Strategic Plan Review, Will Hold Town Hall Meetings

Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board (PVNCCDSB) Director of Education Michael Nasello has embarked on an ambitious outreach campaign to hear as many voices in the school board as possible.

As part of a review of the Board’s Strategic Plan, Nasello will lead more than 60 focus groups, including meetings with students and staff in each of the Board’s 36 schools. He will also conduct a public Town Hall Meeting in each of the Board’s four jurisdictions—City of Kawartha Lakes, Northumberland, Peterborough, and Clarington—between February and May.

Peterborough Victoria Northumberland and Clarington Catholic District School Board Director of Education Michael Nasello leads a focus group at St. Alphonsus Catholic Elementary School in Peterborough on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017.

DETERMINING WHETHER TO STAY THE COURSE OR GO IN NEW DIRECTION

“Our current Strategic Priorities have been serving us well, but after three years we’re at a crossroads, and we want to hear from our students, staff, parents and communities to help us determine whether we should maintain the current path or head in a new direction,” Nasello says.

Throughout the next four months, Nasello will also hear from the Board’s clergy partners, examine issues from a First Nation Métis and Inuit perspective, and receive input on topics such as special education and welcoming newcomers from Syria and elsewhere.

“We’re committed to transparency and accountability and that means we want to hear from as many voices in our system as possible,” Nasello says.
