On April 25th 2012, Clayton Maitland (coordinator and administrator) presented to the sd42 Board Members about the first seven months of the Environmental School Project, which began in September 2011. Parents, students, teachers, and researchers attended the meeting. Many thanks to those who were able to attend.
Attached is the Maple Ridge Environmental School Project Interim Report prepared by the Ecolearning Research Group of Simon Fraser University. The Interim Report to the board draws from interviews carried out with a number of different community member groups. A selection of summarised themes and comments were drawn from interviews with parents and caregivers in mid-October 2011. Additional themes and comments from more recent interviews with students, teachers, and special education assistants are included to complete the Interim Report.
