    Message froM the MInIster of educatIon

    The Honourable Don Morgan, Q.C.

    As we approach the holiday season, Im sure this school year has already presented you with many opportunities.The Government of Saskatchewan is grateful for the continuing dedication of the Saskatchewan Association of School Business Officials members. On a daily basis, SASBO members work hard to address issues on behalf of the thousands of students throughout our province. As Minister of Education, I personally value the expertise and insight that you bring to your jobs every day.

    Although were still early in the 2015-16 school year, Im al-ready encouraged by the many great things happening in Sas-katchewan schools. In early September I had the opportunity to visit many schools and see the great work being done by ad-ministrators, teachers and students. Ive seen innovative teaching methods, programs to improve reading, and most importantly, Ive seen eager, engaged students.

    As a sector, our work through the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) and our Student First philosophy is evident in our schools. We are making progress towards improving our read-ing and grad rates, as well as making our schools welcoming and inclusive for all students.

    Our governments vision is for Saskatchewan to be the best place in Canada to get an education. As leaders in our education sector, I cant thank you enough for helping us achieve this vision. By working together, we can offer every Saskatchewan student the opportunity to succeed in school and beyond.

    Don Morgan, Q.C.Minister of Education

    Message froM the executIve dIrector of sasbo

    Philip Benson

    T he association recently signed a new publishing agreement with DEL Communications to continue to publish our bi-annual SASBO magazine. In a re-cent meeting with DEL officials, I am pleased to re-port that some exciting new concepts were brought forward that will give the magazine a refresh, and in doing so, provide our members, vendors and general public with articles and information that is current and in tune with the educational climate today.

    In order to ensure the magazine is timely and conveys the changes taking place in education, not only across our provin-cial school divisions, but internationally as well, we will need to rely on our members and vendors to provide articles that dem-

    onstrate the innovation, best practices, and successful changes being experienced.

    It will be our intention to profile executive members, successful school divisions LEAN projects, and have regular reports that are specific to each of the existing functional groups in our associa-tion. In addition, we will invite vendors to present articles that keep our readership up-to-date on happenings and new initia-tives in the educational field that can make our jobs at home at lot easier.

    I am excited to be a part of this opportunity to revitalize our SASBO magazine and look forward to working with DEL Com-munications and all of you to make the publication the best that it can be.
