Governing Board

 

What do we do?

We are a decision-making body within the school that assists in defining policy and procedures to meet the educational needs of all students and acts in the best interest of the students.

The Governing Board:

  • analyzes the school’s situation in terms of the school board’s strategic plan
  • adopts the educational project and oversees its implementation and periodic evaluation
  • approves the school’s success plan, rules of conduct and the safety measures
  • responds to LBPSB consultations (ex: Enrolment Criteria, Budget, Major School Change)
  • review and approve proposed field trips by staff as well as fundraisers by Home & School
  • review and allocates funds as proposed by staff and Home & School.

Governing Board meetings are public and we invite you at attend. If you have an issue, concern or question, please email us at clearpoint_gb@lbpearson.ca.

Dov Bensimon (Secretary)
Having a daughter at Clearpoint Elementary for the past several years, I have often attended meetings of the Governing Board as a member of the public. I am honoured to have been elected to an official role as secretary of the board this year. I look forward to being able to contribute to the school community in this role. As a meteorologist, I am always glad to try and help with planning of events by forecasting the weather as well.
  Sandra Fisher (Teacher)
Hi! My name is Sandra Fisher and I am thrilled to be back at Clearpoint....permanently! I love the IB philosophy and am excited to learn about the different IB units in K. Our students are natural inquirers and I can't wait to see them develop socially, emotionally and academically over the course of the year. I am definitely a "risk-taker" who takes a "balanced" approach to learning. I am "committed" to fostering my students "curiosity" while encouraging them to "collaborate". I believe in open and honest "communication" while helping our students bloom as we learn about and demonstrate the attributes of the learner profile! Here's to a wonderful year!
     
Marie-Flore Gignac
My family has been part of the Clearpoint Elementary Community since 2014, when my daughter started Kindergarten. I now have my two children attending the school in grades 1 and 3 and every morning I see them leaving for Clearpoint with a smile on their faces: this makes me feel very grateful and privileged to be part of this wonderful community. I have been involved in the school in many different ways over the past few years and I now look forward to actively contributing to its ongoing success as a Governing Board member. Please feel free to speak with me and voice any concerns that you would like to see addressed by the Governing Board.

Tayba Huot
This is my 3rd year at Clearpoint, I have a son in Grade 2 and a daughter who just started Kindergarten. My husband and I are self-employed and run multiple businesses together; this allows me the time to be involved with the school on a regular basis. The sense of community at Clearpoint Elementary is strong and we are very lucky and privileged to be a part of it. This is my 3rd year on Home & School where I am part an amazing group of Moms and Dads who love Clearpoint dearly, and I am honored to be a part of Governing Board this year. I would encourage all parents to attend the meetings, there’s always something fun going on at Clearpoint! Please feel free to contact me at any time at tayba@surplustrends.com
  Susan Larivière (Teacher)
I have taught at Cedar Park/Clearpoint Elementary for 29 years. I started my career in French kindergarten and have taught every grade except grade four. For the last several years, I have taught grade 5 and 6 French. This year, I am taking on a whole new challenge as the new PYP coordinator and part time resource teacher. In the past, I have been a parent on governing board when my children were in elementary school. I look forward to working with parents and staff on Clearpoint’s governing board.

Carol Rabbat
My two sons are currently in Grade 2 and Grade 4 and our family has been a member of the Clearpoint community since September 2014. After being Home & School liaison to the Governing Board for the last two years, I decided that I wanted to get more involved in the decision-making processes at the GB level that affect our wonderful school. As a new GB parent representative, I am looking forward to taking an active role in the decisions that contribute to the continued success of our school. If you have any concerns that you would like to see addressed by the Governing Board, please come and speak with me.

Ex-officio
Garry Saunders
After nine years in the business world, I returned to school to become a teacher. Thirty-six years later, after a rewarding career in education, I retired from the post of Director of Schools for the Lester B. Pearson School Board in 2006. I look forward to serving a second year as the Community Representative on the Governing Board of my grandson’s school.
  Rachel Wilson (Principal)
My journey at Clearpoint Elementary IB World School began while we were still a Candidate School in January of 2013. The challenges that I faced in learning about the Primary Years Programme of the International Baccalaureate Organization months before our accreditation evaluation were made less daunting by the incredibly knowledgeable and committed staff at Clearpoint.

I feel honoured and privileged to help lead an incredible community of lifelong learners. We have increased our student population by almost one hundred during my tenure here and this is attributed to our collaborative approach in recognizing our partnership in creating the dynamic school that Clearpoint is.
