A Message from the Board of Education

Welcome to a new year of learning together in Chinook’s Edge School Division! Our Board is very proud to lead the team of devoted and caring professionals in this division, where everyone is working together toward student wellness and success.

Our dedicated staff are creating learning environments that ensure every child succeeds. We share a focus on four key goals in all of our schools - Literacy, Academic Excellence, Career and Post-Secondary Transitions, and Social Emotional Outcomes. Ensuring this foundation of quality learning will allow our students to continue to achieve higher levels of success throughout their lifetime.

With the support of the Board and the Central Office Leadership Team, our school professionals continue to challenge, encourage and believe in each one of our students every day. We wish everyone an exciting year of learning in Chinook’s Edge, where students come first!
