In this province, most power and decision-making lies in the hands of over sixty school authorities – so it is essential that school boards and their superintendents hear students’ recommendation on ‘How Alberta schools can show climate leadership.’

Alberta Education invited Alberta’s educational leadership to hear from students and ACEE, and on Wednesday 22 June we were pleased to share our thoughts with these groups in the Alberta Legislature building.
ALL these students are committed to following through on this work next year - Adam Robb’s Calgary students are even meeting over the summer! Students understand the importance of continuing to share their recommendations with interested audiences, and ACEE is pleased to help coordinate this.
Please contact Gareth [at] abcee.org if you’d like to organize a presentation by students.
In their concluding remarks, the students shared their hopes of how these groups could help support their recommendations.
