Does this mean all decisions will be made centrally by the department?
- No. These changes will empower teachers, principals and parents by giving them a greater voice about priorities for their schools.
- For principals, these changes will mean greater autonomy and independence to be the instructional leaders our education system needs.
- Educators will be able to select textbooks and learning materials to best support their teaching needs.
- Classroom teachers will have more input on curriculum through staff exchanges with the department.
- Parents will have a stronger voice through enhanced School Advisory Councils (SACs).
- Regional offices will remain in place.
