Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes time. Vision with action can change the world. Joel Barker
VIBRANT LEARNING COMMUNITY
A great school is by its very nature a 'Vibrant learning Community'. In consultation with our educational stakeholders, we have identified and are committed to six core attributes that foster a great school.
PILLARS OF EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE
A professional educator possesses the knowledge and skills to design both the instruction and the environment for enhanced learning and engagement. Pillars of educational practice include: 1) Curriculum; 2) Instruction; 3) Assessment; and 4) Managing the social and emotional learning environment.
The district plan articulates the school district’s priority areas to Enhance Student Learning. In each area of priority, goals are informed by consultation with respective departments, educational research, stakeholder input, and school plans.
School plans are the result of a collaborative planning process whereby the school community identifies strengths of their school and areas for further development. The implementation of the school plan focuses on areas to enhance student learning and engagement.
