You may wish to read the memo from MEDU Deputy Minister Bruce Rodrigues dated November 3, 2016ENGLISH and FRENCH – and Well-Being in Our Schools, Strength in Our Society: Engagement PaperENGLISH and FRENCH.  The Ministry of Education will be consulting broadly on this and will be soliciting feedback. They have asked Consolidated Municipal Service Managers (CMSMs) to share.

“Although the engagement paper is entitled well-being in schools, I am looking at it through the lens of well-being in the school community which would include early years and other services that support the families in that school community prior to school entry. This may be a good discussion at children and youth services planning tables.”

The paper presents discussion questions around three related themes: understanding well-being, promoting and supporting student well-being, and knowing our impact.

CLICK HERE to learn how to join the discussion. This may be a good discussion topic at children and youth services planning tables.  The engagement process concludes on January 15, 2017.
