Ecole Central Elementary School Learning Framework Draft October 2016

November4

Hello Central Community

As you may have been aware, in the past schools updated a School Improvement Plan which was submitted to the district annually. This year the district has moved to schools creating a Framework for Enhancing Student Learning which is meant to be shared and created as a school community for the school community as a guide for creating school improvement. Here at Central we have been working at devising a framework which will reflect a commitment to our parents and educational partners to work together to continuously improve learning for each student. It reflects local and provincial input and is aligned with the BC Ministry of Education Framework. Here is the first draft that we shared at the PAC meeting and would like to now share with the greater Central community to have access. If you have any questions, comments, concerns or are willing to give any input please feel free to contact the school.
