The Board of Education has identified two priorities -- Literacy for Life and Collegiate Renewal -- to guide the division's work in providing inspiring learning for students.
Literacy for Life
All Kindergarten to Grade 8 students will achieve at or above grade level in reading, writing, and mathematics. They will be engaged in their learning and graduate as active participants in lifelong learning and as responsible, caring, culturally responsive citizens in the community, nation, and world. In pursuit of this goal, we will focus intensively on the engagement, achievement and graduation rates of First Nations, Inuit and Métis students.
The significant characteristics of Literacy for Life include:
- a strong focus on student engagement, achievement and early learning;
- intensive professional development for our staff regarding powerful teaching;
- learning and assessment strategies;
- on-going measurement of our results;
- and a long-term commitment to this change initiative.
For more information on Literacy for Life and how we are engaging students in learning please visit the Literacy for Life webpage or read our Literacy for Life progress report.
All collegiate students will be engaged in their learning so that they graduate as competent, active participants in lifelong learning and as responsible, caring, culturally responsive citizens in the community, nation, and world. In pursuit of this goal, we will focus intensively on the engagement, achievement and graduation rates of First Nations, Inuit and Metis students.
The significant characteristics of Collegiate Renewal include:
- on-going assessment of student engagement through the following four dimensions: competency, relevancy, potency, and sense of belonging;
- intensive professional learning opportunities for staff that focus on powerful teaching, learning, and assessment strategies; and
- honouring student, parent/guardian, and community partner voice and perspective in the learning process.
