Trustees on the Seine River School Board are looking forward to relevant training being made available from their provincial organization.
Manitoba Association of School Trustees Regional Director Robert Rivard reports a revamped education program is being rolled out for school trustees across the province. Basic courses may cover the role of a trustee or board and the rights and responsibilities of trustees. Seasoned trustees may choose to learn more about the role of a board chair or how to deal with media. The program has been offered in the past but Seine River Trustees felt the material wasn't relevant to seasoned board members. Rivard notes his board is glad to see mast take action.
