CMSD82 Safe Return to School Plans – 2020-2021 School Year

 

We share our updated District and School Plans related to Coast Mountains School District’s restart plan for the 2020-2021 school year, as provided below which reflect the updated Public Health Guidance documents for K-12 School Settings.

We were provided the parameters for Stage 2 from the Ministry of Education and the Provincial Health Officer.  The guidelines were developed based on the four principles.  The #1 principle is Healthy & Safety.  As you make your way through our plans, my hope is that they offer you reassurance related to your child’s safety and as they re-enter schools within Coast Mountains School District.

Our goal in the creation of these plans is to design safe environments that will provide families the reassurance that will allow them to send children back to school safely.  Please feel free to reach out to school administrators about school plans with any questions that you may have.

If you have any questions relating to the District Re-Start Plans, please email covid@cmsd.bc.ca.

Sincerely,

Janet Meyer
Superintendent of Schools

CMSD82 Board of Education News Release, Janet Meyer Appointed Superintendent of Schools

 

CMSD82 Board of Education News Release – Janet Meyer Appointed Superintendent of Schools

 

The Board of Education is pleased to announce that Janet Meyer has accepted the Board’s offer to assume the position of Superintendent of Schools on a permanent basis. Janet has been performing that role as Acting Superintendent since June 2019. Janet succeeds Katherine McIntosh, who is seconded to the Ministry of Education, and who will not be returning as Superintendent when that secondment ends.

Janet’s appointment as Superintendent is the culmination of a long and varied career with School District 82, having worked in this District as a Teacher, a Principal, a Director of Instruction and Director of Human Resources before taking on the role of Acting Superintendent of Schools.

When Janet was appointed Acting Superintendent, the Board recognized her as a widely respected effective leader, team builder and committed educator. Throughout her career, Janet has demonstrated her passion for education, and a “children first” approach to her work. She has demonstrated her skills over the last year, as she helps the Board navigate through and implement actions recommended within the Independent Consultant’s Report and works to strengthen ties with partner groups and the community. Janet has worked tirelessly as we deal with COVID-19 and ensuring our school district provides a safe learning and working environment for our students and staff.

Janet holds a Bachelor of Education (Elementary) from the University of Victoria and a Master of Education in Leadership Studies from the University of Victoria with a focus on Indigenous Parent Participation in Schools.

The Board of Education extends congratulations to Janet on her appointment as Superintendent of Schools.
