Ken Bain Presented at LEADS Summer Short Course
Executive Director Ken Bain attended the LEADS Summer Short Course in early August, at the resort community of Waskesiu, Saskatchewan.  Ken’s presentation was a highlight of the short course, as he focused on:
  • A CASSA update
  • The Pan-Canadian Joint Consortium for School Health Services
  • A Cross-Country Review of Student Wellness Initiatives
  • Next steps for CASSA
LEADS members were very appreciative of Ken’s direct contribution to the success of the short course.

Provincial Education Summit
A provincial education summit is being planned for October 11 and 12 in Saskatoon.  The intent is to “start the dialogue, with a wide range of participants, to guide the co-construction of a framework for a future provincial education plan”.  With a potential of 400+ in attendance, all interested groups within and outside of the educational community will have a chance to influence the direction of Saskatchewan education, and set a course for the sector that could reach toward 2030.
