Academic excellence, character, engagement, and well-being of students are at the centre of a new strategic plan approved by trustees during the June 4 meeting of the Saskatoon Board of Education.
The plan highlights the vision of knowing, valuing, and believing in each student. It emphasizes Saskatoon Public Schools' commitment to creating learning experiences that inspire all students to reach their potential and the importance of relationships, equity and accountability.
The plan, which will guide the division's work during the next five years, was designed to be a clear, succinct vision that would resonate with students, staff, parents/caregivers, and the larger community.
Its development was informed by widespread internal and external consultation that included surveys, data analysis, and multiple opportunities to refine the plan. Feedback was gathered in a variety of ways including: parent, staff and community surveys, sessions with trustees, senior administration, and school-based administrators; student academic achievement data; and consultation with external stakeholders and community organizations.
