An Assurance Model for planning means that the Board is committed to determining the level of confidence that our stakeholders have in our system. Assurance provides a framework for the Division to continue maintaining close alignment with the direction and goals of the Ministry but with a stronger focus on being more responsive to the needs of the Division’s school communities. The Assurance Model framework enables Parkland School Division to ensure learner success through the following process:

  • Develop local goals, strategies and measures that address Divisional priorities focused on ensuring student success;
  • Develop strategic priorities that align with the Ministry but are more responsive to the needs of the school communities within the Division;
  • Offer increased opportunities for stakeholder involvement throughout this process Stakeholder engagement is a critical aspect of the Assurance Model and helps to build a sense of “assurance” that Parkland School Division is indeed developing a strong educational system that puts student learning at the core of its work while being accountable for the quality of work it is doing.

The creation of a responsive plan for education depends on strong stakeholder engagement. In keeping with the School Councils Regulation (113/2007), the Board provided opportunities for School Councils and stakeholders to be involved in this Three Year Education Plan through the following:

  • Through the daily commitment of our Trustees in engaging our students, staff and community;
  • Through the ongoing conversations and engagement that our staff has with students, staff, parents and the community;
  • Through School Council meetings and representation at the Council of School Councils;
  • Throughout the year at three Student Advisory Committee meetings;
  • Through public Board Meetings;
