The Saskatchewan School Boards Association says it wants a say in any changes the government is planning to the education system.
Premier Brad Wall has said health and education will begin undergoing “transformational change” this year, but hasn’t provided any details.
Connie Bailey, president of the association, says it is essential the government collaborate with locally elected school boards before any changes or made.
Bailey also says school boards need sufficient funding, which should be based on projected enrolment, not last year’s numbers.
Bailey adds there has been no clarity from the provincial government on what exactly will be happening with the education sector, and that is providing a tremendous amount of anxiety from school board workers across Saskatchewan.
