Brenda's Platform Experience - Vision - Passion
“I want to be at the table where the conversations happen and informed decisions are made. Decisions that will have a direct and lasting impact on the present and future of the 34,000 students of the HCDSB. I have the experience that is needed to bring necessary change to our board, and I am excited about the opportunity to work hard for the stakeholders who care as much as I do about the Halton Catholic District School Board.”
My plan is to focus on these 4 pillars:
- Stakeholder Engagement-making certain that ALL voices are heard including students, staff, parents and rate payers. And not just heard, but listened to. We need to pay attention to their concerns and be active in our consideration of their needs and wants.
- Student Success – a guarantee that students have access to the best teachers and staff, modern and appropriate tools for learning, functional and enriched learning environments, and working to meet the needs of ALL students, not just some. We need to support the WHOLE child, socially, emotionally and academically.
- Staff Support and Development – ensuring that ALL teachers and support staff are provided the best available resources, supports and professional development so they can do their jobs in the best way possible. Only through strong and committed staff and programming will our children achieve their highest potentials.
- Preserving Catholic Education–by engaging our students and families more consistently, we can ALL work together to protect Catholic Education, so it will be available to future generations of students. We need to stand united in our commitment, and work together to strengthen the ties between home, church and school.
