“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information. Should you require any additional information or if you need assistance interpreting your collective agreement, please contact Teacher Employment Services at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.”

Student leadership and voice is an essential part of a healthy school community. In this session explore ways that leadership opportunities can be embedded in school culture and encouraged for all students, not just the ones who are already demonstrating strong leadership qualities. Let’s move beyond our assumptions of “what makes a good leader” and create space for all students to show their unique strengths! Learn from a variety of student leadership strategies and success stories from schools across the province, and find opportunities to amplify student voices in your school community.
