Chair Vaughn Wadelius of The Kelsey School Board recently spoke to Arctic Radio News about their regular board meeting held on Monday. Two of the biggest items brought to the table were the implementation of their next strategic plan and an ongoing issue with drivers failing to stop for school buses.
Wadelius says it was agreed to begin the process of the development of their next strategic plan for 2019-2022. Once the strategic plan is completed it will be posted to the Kelsey School Division’s website but it will take a few weeks to finalize once they have their organizational meeting and get input from those participating in the meeting such as people from the school division and from parent council.
They also discussed a report from the transportation committee the indicated that there is still an issue with motorists in The Pas passing school buses with their stop signs out. The School board has ask the RCMP and Citizens on Patrol to Look out for drivers that pass school buses when there lights are on and their stop signs are out as this is a safety hazard for students.
Motorists are reminded not to pass school buses when there lights are flashing and when there stop sign is out, otherwise you could be charged with a $600 fine or you could lose two demerit points.
