Letter to the Editor

Dear Southwest Horizon School Division Constituents,
  The Southwest Horizon School Division Annual Budget process for the development of the 2016/17 Operating Budget has commenced.  Please accept this letter as an invitation to attend our Annual General Meeting and Preliminary Budget Presentation to be held on February 10, 2016, at Hartney School in Hartney, MB, at 6:00 p.m.
  Over the past year, Southwest Horizon School Division has consulted with our constituents in several ways.  The Division has collected feedback from school satisfaction surveys, student advisory council meetings as well as from an extensive process entitled ThoughtExchange.  The ThoughtExchange process invited our community to share their thoughts about what we are doing well and where we can improve and then prioritize these thoughts.  The end goal for this process was to get a sense of shared values and priorities within our schools and across the Southwest Horizon School Division community.  The feedback received has been instrumental in setting school improvement plans, the renewal of our Division’s Strategic Plan and budget priorities.  
  The Board of Trustees will be considering the feedback arising from the ThoughtExchange results in its upcoming deliberations for the 2016/17 Operating Budget.  At this time, we invite all of our constituents to review the ThoughtExchange results at  HYPERLINK "http://www.shmb.thoughtexchange.info/" www.shmb.thoughtexchange.info/ or directly from our website at www.shmb.ca
  If you feel the Division should be focusing on other priorities, not specified in the ThoughtExchange results, or if you would like to provide further comments on the results, contact Carolyn Cory, Superintendent at 204-483-6248 or carolync@shmb.ca  or contact Kevin Zabowski, Secretary-Treasurer at 204-483-6261 or kevinz@shmb.ca to provide your input.  Please provide your initial feedback by December 31, 2015, so we can consider it before the Annual General Meeting and Preliminary Budget Presentation on February 10, 2016. We hope that you can join us on February 10, 2016.  Please RSVP your attendance to Michelle Blades, Executive Secretary, at 204-483-6249 or michelleb@shmb.ca
Sincerely,
Southwest Horizon School Division Board of Trustees
