Education Week
April 2000

Below is a list of all Nova Scotia schools
known to have a website as of Education Week 2000.

Actually, there was no Education Week in 2000 in Nova Scotia. The usual celebration was scheduled for the usual time, the third week of April, but it was cancelled early in April by the School Board Association as a way of protesting the provincial government's reductions in education funding. This annual list of Nova Scotia schools on the Internet has been timed in the past to coincide with Education Week, and this year's list has been prepared at the usual time.

April 2005:   415 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 2004:   369 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 2003:   349 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 2002:   299 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 2001:   257 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 2000:   179 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 1999:   158 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites
April 1998:   116 Nova Scotia Schools with Websites

Southwest Regional School Board
Split Into Three Parts

Purves splits mega school board

Dividing Southwest regional hoped to resolve spats among members

The Halifax Chronicle-Herald
Friday, April 28, 2000

Southwest regional school board members from one part of the region no longer need worry about bickering with fellow board members who live three or four counties away.

Yesterday, Education Minister Jane Purves introduced legislation that will split the board, creating two boards to look after education-related matters, while retaining a third administrative body with a chief executive officer, accountable to the deputy minister. A task force report on school board boundaries recommended splitting the board because infighting among elected officials was hampering decision-making.

The new Tri-County district school board will serve Digby, Yarmouth and Shelburne counties, while the South Shore district school board will oversee Queens and Lunenburg counties. The third body will keep the name Southwest regional school board, but won't deal with any educational concerns. The CEO will head a group of senior administrators who'll deal with buildings, buses, contracts and the like. That is the group that must still find ways of eliminating $7.2 million from the board's budget. Total funding for this pilot project will be the same as for the former Southwest regional board. "I'm confident it's going to work at least as well as what's there now ... or else I wouldn't be trying it," Education Minister Jane Purves said in a telephone interview Thursday. Government is not bent on taking over every school board in the province, said Ms. Purves. "In spite of what the critics say ... this is a model that I think has a really good chance of working," she said.

"I can see advantages in what we are going to do," said board member Robie Atkinson, a retired teacher who lives in Clark's Harbour. He'll serve on the Tri-County board. "My focus on the new board is just going to be education. I won't have to deal with the financial part of it ... and I'm very happy that we are going to be just the Digby, Yarmouth and Shelburne board. He said he found it trying keeping up with 65 schools spread across five counties.

The legislation was introduced Thursday but Ms. Purves didn't know when to expect passage. "It depends how long the opposition wants to debate it ... and I think they'll want to debate it fully, she said.

The changes are also about accountability. "I'm not saying the (Southwest) administration is necessarily top heavy ... We want to be able to see for ourselves how efficient an operation we can make it," the minister said. "We simply must have more accountability between government, who writes the cheques, and school boards, who spend them," she said.

The newly created boards are identical to the western and eastern zones of the former Southwest regional school board. Each new district board will have a director of education to serve as a superintendent. Right now, Leroy Legere serves in that capacity in the western zone, while Terry Doucette is in charge of the eastern zone.

It's not known who will serve as education directors in the new boards, said Ann Jones, superintendent of the Southwest board. She does not know if she will remain as CEO.

Elected board members will stay on and transfer to their new boards. The Yarmouth head office will be used for the Tri-County board and the overseeing administrative group, while the Bridgewater satellite office will become home to the South Shore district board.
