March 8, 2021 Special Board/ Committee of the Whole Meeting - SLO Report
The Vancouver School Board welcomes those who wish to speak at the March 8, 2021 on-line Special Board/Committee of the Whole meeting regarding the School Liaison Officer (SLO) Program Review Report (being presented at the March 3, 2021 Policy and Governance Committee meeting).
There has been a great deal of interest and engagement regarding the SLO program, and it is expected that many individuals will want to share their input directly with the Board on this topic.
To ensure the Board hears from many, speaking priority will be given to Vancouver residents and/or organizations which represent Vancouver residents. Presenters will have a maximum of 5 minutes to speak.
Vancouver residents (or organizations that represent Vancouver residents) who wish to present to the Special Board/ Committee of the Whole must register by noon on Friday March 5, 2021. Due to the anticipated high number of presenters, no late requests will be accepted.
If you would like to register to present, please send your full name, the name of the organization or group you represent (if applicable), your email address, a contact phone number to:
The Secretary Treasurer’s Office
c/o Shamirah Khan, Administrative Office Assistant – firstname.lastname@example.org
Marlene Phillips, Executive Assistant – email@example.com
Again, all requests to present must be received by noon on Friday, March 5, 2021. Your registration will be confirmed by the Secretary Treasurer’s Office.
Non-Vancouver residents who wish to provide input to the Board are asked to submit it via email to SLOreview@vsb.bc.ca by noon on Friday, March 5, 2021. All emails received will be provided to trustees for their consideration.
Delegation to Standing Committees
The Province’s Public Health Office’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the way people interact. The requirements to maintain physical distance from others and to not gather in large crowds have resulted in the need to change the way we meet in most cases from face to face to virtual. The District uses Microsoft Teams as its virtual platform for meetings and is developing procedures to include members of the public who wish to make a delegation to a standing committee. These will be in place for the fall. Currently the Education Centre is closed to the public and a decision has been made for the June standing committee meetings that persons wishing to make a delegation will make their delegation in writing. The committee meetings are live streamed and the written submissions will be read out at the beginning of each meeting. If there are questions from committee members, they will be forwarded to the delegation after the meeting for a response and the answers will be provided to the committee members via email in a timely manner.
Making Delegation Arrangements
Those who wish to speak at a committee meeting please refer to the following excerpt from Board Policy 8: Board Committees - Delegations to Standing Committee Meetings.
Individuals or delegations wishing to appear before a Standing Committee should contact the following by email:
J. David Green, Secretary Treasurer - firstname.lastname@example.org
