November Update

Thank you for the calls and emails we received inquiring about ReThink’s progress to become Alberta’s 14th public charter school!  The final proposal package was submitted to Education Minister David Eggen prior to November 1st. We anticipate hearing his decision by mid-January, or before.  As you may recall from earlier posts, the decision we receive from Minister Eggen is final.  We will keep posting new information on the website blog page, Facebook and Twitter.

ReThink Charter developers continue to advocate for charter approval within the community and government.  We are appreciative of the media opportunities that have helped us inform others about the need for this charter within the Calgary community.

Many parents have asked, “what can I do to help”?

Stories are powerful, and are a part of our daily lives.  Your story – much like the ones shared by ReThink in the media – can have a tremendous impact.  If you have someone in your family with a learning disability, share your story with your MLA and other people of influence within the community so they can understand the challenges facing children with learning differences.  Help them understand what a learning disability is, and why programs such as ReThink’s are so important.

I have posted a list of MLA’s for Calgary and a link to the electoral boundary maps below for your review.

Contacting MLA’s and those in government is one way to advocate for children with learning disabilities.  With knowledge and understanding comes action.

Thank you again for your interest in ReThink!

Kind Regards,

Gloria Zakariasen and the ReThink Team
