School board to seek input on student awards

September 14th, 2018

For over 20 years, the board has presented Citizenship Awards to chosen students in Grades 6, 9 and 12, based on the criteria in Administrative Procedure 20-18 PHPS Citizenship Awards.

At their September 12 meeting, the board discussed revising the criteria for the award, including eliminating the academic requirement. Instead of one award winner per year, they may consider recognizing more students more often, similar to the Recognition Awards program that honors exemplary teachers, support staff, contractors, parent volunteers and community partners, or a combination.

To help guide their decision, the board will ask for input from parents, school councils, students, principals, staff and community members. Subscribe here to receive updates.

  • Facilities update by Director Tracy Tyreman on projects that were completed over the summer
  • Board prepares self-evaluation summary
