Recording of the Zoom meeting with the Education Minister on April 2, 2020
PLEASE NOTE * due to technical difficulty - the first 6 minutes of the video does not have VISUALS, but does have important AUDIO. (total video time is 1 hour)
Responses to questions submitted to the Minister (those in advance, in the Zoom QA, and submitted after) will be posted in this section as they are available.
ASCA staff will separate all questions submitted into the Zoom QA - into themes/topics, and post them here – along with the names of the submitters – so everyone has an opportunity to appreciate the volume, theme and topics of the questions. All questions will be sent – verbatim – to the Minister’s staff for a response.
I would like to take this moment to thank the Honorable Minister LaGrange and those who assisted in organizing this event.
It was informative and clarifying in regards to the process of difficult decision making.
In this time of uncertainty and feeling of powerlessness, the session provided parents the opportunity to get involved and ask questions to those directly responsible for government actions.
Most importantly, we could view the Minister from a different perspective - a parent, a concerned citizen and a relatable individual. Hopefully more of these video conferences will be held in the future.
Thank you kindly,
Notre Dame High School Council, CSSD Calgary
