Public Statement from the MVSD Board of Trustees

Mountain View School Division Board of Trustees is aware of personal statements and comments during a presentation made by a single trustee during its public Board Meeting on Monday April 22, 2024.  Mr. Coffey was speaking as an individual and his opinions and comments were his own and possibly those of other constituents in his Ward.  Mr. Coffey was not speaking on behalf of the Board.  Mountain View School Division stands by our continued work with Indigenous partners and our tireless work around reconciliation with our Umbay Nagamon project. Mountain View School Division stands against any type of racism while we work to fulfill the outcomes of our Indigenous Education Framework.  We will continue to ensure that our students and staff are working in an environment where every student is valued, nurtured and enabled to realize their full potential. 

Gabe Mercier, Chair, Board of Trustees, Mountain View School Division
