Priority Committees

In Border Land School Division, we work under a framework of Divisional Priorities.  These priorities are identified via a planning session with BLSD staff and community partners.  The priority work is reported to the Board of Trustees and new priorities are developed at the discretion of the Board. The current priorities in Border Land School Division are:

Education for Sustainable Development: 
Our work in ESD is focused around 4 pillars and the goal elements in each, as identified in the following graphic:


Relationships, Engagement, and Relevant Leaning:

Through the divisional Relationships, Engagement and Relevant Learning priority committee, Border Land School Division strives to support both staff and students in deepening their understanding of Indigenous education on a range of topics. The work of the committee is focused through four goals:

  • To build a culture of care, connection and community for students and their families.
  • To provide learning opportunities for both staff and students to understand and celebrate past and present Indigenous cultures.
  • To implement Indigenous perspectives in all content areas.
  • To improve educational outcomes for (Indigenous) students.

Border Land School Division acknowledges that the communities and schools located within Border Land School Division sit on Treaty 1 and Treaty 3 land, the original lands of the Anishinaabe peoples and on the homeland of the Metis nation.

Border Land School Division respects the treaties that were made on these treaty areas and we dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with our Indigenous communities in a spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.

* Detailed reporting on these priorities as well as on other initiatives and work occurring within the school division can be found in our Continuous Improvement Plan.
