Tuesday, December 1 marked the Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic District School Board's Inaugural meeting for the 2021 term.

Following an address from Father Marek Chochrek the Board of Trustees swore in a new Chair, Vice Chair, and Chair of the Finance and Operations Committee.

Tom Dall of Belleville was acclaimed as the Board's new Chair, along with Michael Murphy of Kingston as Vice Chair, and Christopher Wright of Carrying Place as Chair of the Finance and Operations Committee.

β€œThe COVID19 pandemic has tested our Board with a host of new challenges and obstacles. It is my distinct honour to say how impressed, and grateful I am for the wonderful response and dedication to excellence our staff, educators, and community partners have shown throughout this unprecedented global crisis," said Dall during his Inaugural address to the Board.  

Dall said that even though schools look and feel different this year due to enhanced safety protocols and greater utilization of remote learning, he is confident students and educators will continue to contribute to the unique community atmosphere ALCDSB is known for.

The Inaugural meeting officially commences the 2021 Board Year. β€‹

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
