Parent/Guardian Concerns

If you have a concern about something at your child’s school, we want to hear from you. We will make every effort to address your concern in a timely manner. The first step is to contact your child’s teacher or the staff member involved. Most concerns can be resolved at this level. If you feel more action is needed, the next step is to speak to your child’s principal.

If the concern can’t be resolved at the school level, please contact the Supervisor of School Support Services at 902-538-4745. If a resolution still can’t be reached, then please contact the Director of Programs and Services by calling 902-538-4617. The last step in this process is to contact the Office of the Superintendent of Schools at 902-538-4615. You can also call the AVRSB switchboard toll-free at 1-800-850-3887 to reach these offices.
