New curriculum committee meets this week

The future needs of high school students in Saskatchewan will be examined over the next three years.

The province formed the Curriculum Advisory Committee to map out a course load for graduates that meets the needs of post-secondary institutions and the business community.

Chair Susan Nedelcov-Anderson calls their task a futuristic approach involving a cross-section of education stakeholders.

The 24 members include teachers, administrators, and representatives from education ministry, the post-secondary, workforce and business sectors nominated by their organizations.

The committee is also comprised of four parents from around Saskatchewan.

It meets for the first time later this week and will make recommendations during its three year term.
