Priorities for Student Learning: 2017 – 2020
In 2013 the LRSD School Board established Three Priorities for Student Learning, setting goals that every student would be:
- Developing strong literacy and numeracy skills.
- Academically, emotionally, physically and intellectually engaged in learning.
- Demonstrating that they are active citizens contributing to their communities.
Informed by an extended review of the 2015-16 Report to the Community, as well as feedback gained from the Board's Community Connections Committee, the Board agreed to make several small and yet significant additions to our Priorities for Student Learning that LRSD will carry through for the next three years.
Aligned with these priorities,
each of our schools and departments will develop and then focus upon specific
goals that will help our Division level aspirations come to fruition. The three
priorities for student learning in the Louis Riel School Division are that each
and every student is:
Developing strong literacy and numeracy skills, and that the Division has evidence of this development.
- At the high school level, students are developing a high degree of financial literacy.
Academically, emotionally, physically, and intellectually engaged in learning.
- Students will become independent learners.
- Students will be prepared for their preferred post school opportunities.
- Students will demonstrate creativity and innovation.
- While engaged in their learning, students will have a high degree of mental wellness.
Demonstrating they are active citizens contributing to their local, national and global communities.
As well, recognizing that some communities face significant structural challenges, it is our goal to ensure all students, including those from Indigenous and Newcomer communities, have the same opportunities and achieve as well as their peers.
To see these priorities in action, read our annual Report to the Community. Both the report from the division and the reports from each school give specific examples on how the priorities are being focused on every day.
