Re: Support Staff Adjustments Due to Funding Reductions
From: Superintendent Roger Clarke

Since the announcement last Saturday, by the Alberta government, that school jurisdictions would be required to find cost savings for the last three months of the 2019-2020 school year, the Prairie Rose board and executive team have been diligently working through the numbers to determine what we can do without, and what are must have resources for the jurisdiction.  It is clear to us that our teachers, parents and school principals deem our support staff as an “essential” piece of the at home learning environment as we work to ensure all students are supported at this time of crisis.  I encourage you to watch the video to learn more about our decision to retain staff through this difficult time.
