REGULATION 1163

CONSULTATION

Guidelines for the Consultative Process

Criteria

The District would undertake consultation if and when:

  • the constituency may be significantly affected by the decision
  • the decision may be controversial
  • the decision making process could benefit from a widespread exchange of information
  • the decision needed is value based and/or subjective in nature

Considerations

Before the District engages in a consultation process the following would be determined and communicated to the public:

  • the objectives and goals of the consultation
  • the issues upon which it is consulting
  • the educational and community partners involved in the consultation process
  • the person(s) with contact information
  • the measures of success of the consultation process

Communication

When the District begins a consultation process, it would normally include, but not be limited to, the following in its information release to educational and community partners:

  • specific timelines showing each stage of the process
  • limitations on the process in both scope and time
  • the consultation methods to be utilized
  • background information that is timely and comprehensive
  • other options that have been, or are being, considered
  • opportunities to be provided for input, feedback, and dialogue

Should there be a change in the consultation process, this will be communicated. When the consultation process is complete and a decision is made, the District will inform those consulted of the decision and the reasons for the decision.

A review of the process and structure of consultation will be conducted periodically involving all those affected by the process.
