Winnipeg School Division Priorities 2010-2017
At the meeting of the Board of Trustees on May 17, 2010 educational priorities for the Winnipeg School Division for the seven year period beginning September 2010 and ending June 30, 2017 were adopted.
The priorities are:
1. To strengthen instructional and assessment strategies for all students using all available resources including the integration of technology.
2. To improve academic and behaviour support services for students with special needs (in accordance with the Standards for Student Services).
3. To strengthen and enhance Education for Sustainable Development initiatives that address environmental, social and economic issues world-wide.
4. To further improve school attendance and graduation rates through the exploration of additional programs and strategies.
These priorities were determined taking into consideration input from the schools (staff and administrators), division staff and parent councils, as well as reviewing the Guiding Principles developed as part of the Budget discussion in the Spring of 2010, and the priorities of Manitoba Education.
As has been the case with previous priorities, expected outcomes, activities and success indicators will be developed through the Division Plan. School Plans for the 2010-2013 period will also incorporate these priorities.
Other initiatives such as promoting and supporting healthy and physically active lifestyles including the implementation of the Nutrition policy and the Grade 11/12 Physical Education and Health curricula, security measures for schools, improving the involvement of the community in the educational process, Aboriginal education and strengthening and enhancing learning opportunities of immigrant and refugee students were also identified as key areas.
