We have a huge responsibility to assure the stakeholders in our schools – students, staff, Trustees, Ministry – have all the correct information to make the best decisions possible. We need to ensure we reduce our 'I don’t know what I don’t know' position to the least possible. No project should venture far without expert advice.
