B.C.’s Minister of Education Mike Bernier has appointed WATSON to review the North Okanagan-Shuswap school board after three trustees resigned.  Read more about the review.

WATSON will review board activities and make recommendations for moving forward after the board asked the ministry for help.

“We’ve heard from the board and from parents in the community that the public has to have confidence in the board and its work,” Bernier said. “The appointment of Liz Watson to look at everything the board is doing will help set the North-Okanagan Shuswap district on a path that rebuilds confidence.”

Liz will report, by May 20, on the board’s governance practices, relationships with district management, accountability, budget processes and capital planning.
