Education Ministry wants better working relationship with Region 1 parents

first_imgThe Education Ministry hosted a town hall-style meeting in the community of Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini) on Tuesday so as to continue its journey towards ensuring equity across the education sector.The meeting was held at the Mabaruma Learning Resources Centre, and a number of parents from various villages gathered to gain insight into the Education Ministry’s agenda for improving the quality of education in Guyana.Present at the gathering was the Coordinator of the National Parent-Teachers Association (PTA), Nadia Hollingsworth, who stated that several studies revealed that exceptional results were obtained when there was cooperation and collaboration on education. As such, she reiterated that it was important for parents to be more active in their children’s educational development.“Without the parents’ involvement, the education process will have a disconnect and will hinder process,” the Coordinator explained.Hollingsworth later explained that although billions of dollars were being spent by the Ministry, the results were not so promising. She emphasised that the PTA should involve the parents too and not only the teachers, adding that it was the parent’s duty to ensure that their children benefit from a proper education.Education Minister Nicolette Henry has been advocating a vision for closer relationships between the Ministry, parents and teachers to maximise the full potential of children.last_img read more

GECOM’s house-to-house registration imminent – PRO

first_img– even as country awaits rulings from Caribbean Court of JusticeThe Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is forging ahead with preparations to conduct house-to-house registration which is expected to commence by the end of June.GECOM PRO Yolanda WardGECOM’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Yolanda Ward, in a telephone interview with Guyana Times, explained that the Commission is not reneging on executing this initiative that is seen as absolutely necessary.“The exercise will commence sometime later this month. I do not have a definitive date as yet. The Commission is deliberating on a day to start the process.”In relation to the process being “halted” a few days ago, she explained that this delay did not necessarily mean that GECOM would have put aside the house-to-house registration process.“I think what had initially happened was that the anticipated timeline to commence the field exercise was scheduled for June 1 (2019). That was what we were looking at tentatively. So, that did not happen but house-to-house registration is still on, just that it will start at a later time than anticipated,” Ward stated.According to Ward, the process is expected to last for an average of three months.However, the elections body is standing firm by its belief that the exercise is mandatory before the next General and Regional Elections are held.The issue was first raised by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo at a recent press conference.Last week, after the statutory meeting, Government-nominated Commissioner Charles Corbin had disclosed that there were some procurement issues at the election Secretariat which by extension will delay the process.Nevertheless, Ward had previously told Guyana Times that the training of staff required for the exercise has been completed and they are now in the process of tidying up placements.Although GECOM is forging ahead with house-to-house registration, the country awaits a ruling from the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on the December 2018 passage of the Opposition’s No-Confidence Motion.The Trinidad-based regional court is currently deliberating on several appeals which are asking it to overturn the Guyana Court of Appeal’s March ruling which invalidated the passage of the motion of no-confidence against the coalition Government.The CCJ is being asked to throw out the Appeal Court’s ruling and uphold the High Court’s January decision that the motion was validly passed and as such, Government should resign and call elections.In May, the CCJ panel heard submissions from the parties and is expected to hand down its decision sometime this month.According to the Opposition Leader, there are concerns brewing over the length of time the CCJ is taking to deliver its decision, especially since it was critical of the sloth with which the matter was dealt with here in Guyana.Nevertheless, he posited that while they await that ruling, the staff at the Elections Commission should be cautious.Meanwhile, the house-to-house registration exercise is being held amidst contention between the two sides of political Commissioners at GECOM.The Opposition-nominated Commissioners had held out that there was no need for house-to-house registration when the old voters’ list could have been vetted and updated through a “Claims and Objections” period.In fact, a similar view was recently shared by GECOM’s legal officer, Excellence Dazzell. She submitted a legal opinion, contending that house-to-house registration is not necessary and advised that another less time-consuming process be utilised in accordance with the law to update the list. But the lawyer’s advice was set aside by GECOM.last_img read more

Castaic waits for campus

first_imgPaul Novak, an Antonovich aide, said delays are to be expected when a school is tied to a developer. “Even if SunCal had all the approvals for NorthLake, there is no guaranteed schedule of how quickly they can proceed,” Novak said. “In this regard, the opening of this high school is entirely dependent on how quickly the developer proceeds, which is dependent on construction costs, interest rates, and the health of the local economy.” Antonovich recently suggested another site, a portion of 450 acres on what’s called the Castaic Mesa, owned by The Newhall Land and Farming Company. Novak said the site is not meant to derail the district’s work on the NorthLake site but is a way of ensuring options are available. But Hart’s chief operations officer Rob Gapper said Antonovich made the offer public without consulting the district, which sees problems including its proximity to the county jail in Castaic and to a water treatment plant. “We are in the process of looking at that site and we will continue to investigate it,” Gapper said. “But there are some concerns we already have.” Gapper, who is in charge of construction for the district, said that in his short review of the site he’s also noted limited access and geology and environmental concerns. The site requires approval of the state Department of Education, which has stringent guidelines for school locations. Land purchased in the Hasley/Sloan canyon area by the district’s nonprofit Santa Clarita Valley Facilities Foundation also has drawbacks if reconsidered. Gapper said the district recently completed a timeline for the Hasley/Sloan site that estimated it would take four to five years to get ready. Designs would be done concurrently, but the district would need to invest an additional $2 million – already spent on designing Castaic High on the NorthLake site – for designs for the Hasley/Sloan site. Meanwhile, the environmental impact report for NorthLake was completed this month. If there is no opposition, the development could go before the county in April for review. The Hart District has said a construction-ready pad in March 2008 would allow Castaic High to remain on schedule. Hart Superintendent Jaime Castellanos said the district remains focused on the NorthLake property, having invested time and effort. “Right now we are moving straight forward with SunCal developers on the NorthLake site,” Castellanos said. Facing a possible $125 million deficit, Hart won’t consider other properties unless the money is available. For Gastaldo, a mother of two boys in sixth and seventh grades, the issue is not where the school is built, but when. “It’s about getting something built as soon as possible,” she said. “The delays that we’ve encountered, no matter whose fault they are, are unacceptable.” connie.llanos@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! CASTAIC – The issue of where Castaic students will attend high school for the next four years was settled last week, but Castaic families still have one question: Where’s our school? The Hart Union High School District has three pieces of land available for the long-awaited Castaic campus, now priced at $175 million. The No. 1 choice is dependent on a large residential development that is planned; a second site is a semirural area already owned by the district and opposed by some community members; a third site was suggested by county Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich – without any input from the district. As the pros and cons are weighed for each site, patience in the community is growing thin. “I am frustrated with the lack of monitoring regarding a school site,” said Castaic resident Lisa Gastaldo. “We take one step forward and two steps back.” The Castaic saga started almost five years ago when Hart district officials realized the fast-paced growth mandated a Castaic high school. The area’s hilly landscape made the process of finding a site difficult and community opposition to certain sites – even one eventually purchased by the district’s nonprofit foundation – further delayed the project. In 2003, developer SunCal offered 60 acres on the NorthLake site for use as a high school, and all parties seemed pleased. The district would waive developer fees and SunCal would deliver the district a construction-ready site. But design and environmental issues have delayed the school further and resulted in its newest projected opening date of fall 2010. Now a slump in the housing markets adds a question: Will the land be available with or without the rest of the development? last_img read more
