Strategic Priority 1: Belonging
A strategic priority focusing on inclusion to foster well-becoming to ensure students and staff are welcomed, accepted, valued, healthy, and safe while at school and in the workplace; and parents/guardians are welcomed and valued as essential partners.
Advancing this strategic priority is supported by the following strategic actions:
1.1. Expanding the LRSD Community Schools Network at the René Deleurme Centre to serve more schools and families.
1.2. Creating a Comprehensive Workplace Safety and Health Program to promote and support safety, health, and wellness.
1.3. Reinforcing developmentally and trauma sensitive practices to address prejudice and barriers that impede belonging.
1.4. Strengthening Indigenous Language Education by implementing a language nest program in our family centres, expanding the locally developed Kindergarten to Grade 3 Indigenous Languages Exposure curriculum to reach all students in all schools, and expanding Indigenous language credits in Grades 9 to 12.
1.5. Reframing the Grade 11 English Language Arts Curriculum to focus on Indigenous literature and perspectives, while ensuring the Grade 11 History Curriculum thoroughly explores Indigenous histories and perspectives.
1.6. Expanding International and Heritage Language options in high schools.
