Barr Foundation - Photography Visit

The Barr Foundation has provided $450,000 of support for the development of our Trailblazer model here at MTRS. The Trailblazer model has a sharp focus on the development of a positive building culture and strong relationships between students and teachers through Advisory, greater opportunities for student-driven choice in academic classes, and a focus on developing college or career-ready skills in all students. Additionally, the Trailblazer model has helped provide opportunities for teacher collaboration and greater distributed leadership among staff in order to help teachers support students and shape educational experiences in response to changing student needs.

On October 20, we were pleased to welcome a Barr photographer to document students and staff at MTRS. These photos will be used in our MTRS publications such as the newsletter and yearbook, and also in the Barr Foundation's support for school redesign work.

Based on the media release forms we have received, we tried to ensure that students from families who had not given permission were not photographed. I will also make sure that we double check the photos to be used to make sure that all families have given permission.

Finally, if you are still to return a media image permission form, please download and return this form. Alternatively, you can pick up a hard copy from the front office.
