Ultimate Goal: Student Success and Well-Being

Students will be encouraged to explore, create, imagine and engage in lifelong learning as they develop their skills/competencies to prepare to enter the world of post-secondary studies or work.

The Division believes that student success is closely linked to student well-being and the development of social-emotional assets that build resiliency, and is therefore committed to the development of the whole child at all levels of their education. 

Our Priorities

Our Education Plan establishes strategic processes (enduring priorities) that are considered in the generation of strategies (forward-thinking actionable plans). These strategies enable us to demonstrate growth toward our intended outcomes.
