This chart from the Department of Education shows the new structure of the province's education system after the P.E.I. announced plans to shut down the English Language School Board.
Government is seeking nominations and applications for the inaugural Learning Partners Advisory Council.
The council will advise Premier Wade MacLauchlan on policies, programs and strategies needed to support learners throughout their lives.
Initially, this advisory council will lead a process to renew the vision and philosophy for Prince Edward Island’s education system.
This advisory council will be made up of 10 education partners and 10 community partners.
“We need to draw on the expertise of Islanders involved in learning and education, and I encourage anyone with interest in supporting our learners to consider this opportunity to serve and help shape public policy,” said inaugural Learning Partners Advisory Council co-chairman Bill Whelan.
“Together, we can guide education and learning in the province, with a shared sense of purpose and direction that is focused on the learner.”
For the inaugural council, education partners will include the teachers’ federation, the home and school, la Commission scolaire de langue française, English Language School Board, UPEI and Holland College.
Education groups are encouraged to nominate a learning champion from their organization.
Islanders are invited to apply for membership on the inaugural council as a community partner.
