I am very pleased to be able to share greetings on behalf of the Public Schools Branch (PSB).
While there are a number of changes to the structure of our education system, the focus of the PSB remains firmly on working with our educators, support staff, Board of Directors, community partners and parents to support student success. We are committed to improving student achievement, ensuring equity, inclusion and well-being, as well as enhancing engagement, accountability and sustainability.
Over the course of the next few months, one of my goals will be to gain a better understanding of the PSB and its priorities by listening to the perspectives of school staff, school administrators, students, parents, community groups, business and union leaders. I look forward to making one-on-one connections with people to discuss the priorities of the PSB. Listening to one another will be essential to our shared success.
The PSB is about people, service, and accountability. We will work together to ensure we remain focused on these things as we move forward. Through our programs, services, and our dedicated staff, we will prepare students within safe and inclusive environments to embrace a changing world as lifelong learners and informed, responsible citizens.
Please check back to this site often, as we will be sharing updates on our priorities, successes, as well as information about ongoing initiatives and events that are happening at the PSB.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you and to work, learn, and grow with you.
Parker Grimmer, Director
Public Schools Branch
