Trustees received and accepted the Finance Report and the 2020-21 budget presentation.

The Board made a request to administration to update Administrative Procedure 260 to have all trips outside of Alberta require Board approval. The changes in insurance during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in coverage out-of-province no longer being covered as part of the regular coverage provided to school authorities.
