An Agenda of Change, Renewal and Hope for a Better School District
Proposed Top 10 Priorities for 2018-2022
 Equity and quality education for ALL: a system where student needs take precedence over inflexible rules;
 Ongoing and meaningful consultations with students, parents and communities; an open, transparent, and user-friendly system;
 More authority for the Board to make decisions at the local level – as opposed to key decisions largely made by the provincial Ministry of Education;
 Long-term and effective planning for schools and programs across the District; no more rushed and half-baked actions;
 More accountability and better performance for school programs: if you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it!
 More resources into the classroom (including Educational Assistants) and for extracurricular activities;
 Better communication of learning plans, so everyone (students, teachers, parents) can monitor progress and help improve student performance;
 Better, more extensive professional development for teachers, with a focus on special education;
 Access to technology for teachers and students; a “licence to innovate” in the classroom;
 A focus on student well-being, including extensive resources and services for positive mental health, provided at or through the school.
