Community members from various backgrounds and walks of life have come together to brainstorm ways in which schooling in Sackville can become a whole lot better.

 

Our vision

We know our community can lead the way and be proactive in deciding what happens to and in our schools. We would love to see our children thrive and reach their full potential within an inspired & inspiring learning community that is supported by an environmentally-healthy & modern network of educational facilities.

An Integrated Education Community model would allow for collaboration between the many resources and educational initiatives in Sackville. The following graphic provides an overview of the various connected parts:


For an overview of Sackville Schools 2020's vision, you may listen to the CBC New Brunswick interview from March 22, 2017. The interview is useful in providing reasons for why Sackville's schools need attention and highlighting positive steps forward. However, given that it is merely snippets from a longer interview, it leaves out the regard we have for the teachers in our community. There are many amazing teachers in Sackville working to create meaningful learning experiences for their students through initiatives like project-based learning. We want to acknowledge these forward-thinkers in the field who are "thinking outside the box". Our vision is that our school system will enable learning environments in which all students and teachers are happy and engaged.
