I am delighted to share some of the key areas of student achievement and well-being in the 2018-2019 Limestone District School Board Director’s Annual Report, including progress on our multi-year strategic plan focused on Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration.
Relationships are at the heart of effective classrooms and schools. By working together, using our strategic plan as their road map, our students and staff are moving closer to realizing our vision to foster engaging and innovative learning where everyone achieves success and well-being.
It has been another year of change and growth within the Limestone District School Board. I am pleased to report that the new Limestone District School Board of Trustees ended the first year of our four-year term with many achievements and successes.
In addition to welcoming new trustees, we also welcomed a new provincial government. Trustees spent a considerable part of the new school year reviewing policies and procedures, and hearing about the impact of changes to funding, curriculum, and other ministry directives from Board staff.
Our Strategic Priorities
School boards in Ontario are required to develop a Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) that outlines the Board’s strategic goals, progress that has been made against these goals in the previous school year, and actions the Board is taking in those strategic priority areas where goals are not being met.
The Limestone District School Board Strategic Plan 2017-2022 is anchored by three pillars – Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration.
Snapshot of Ministry Directives
As part of the Director’s Annual Report for the 2018-2019 school year, school boards are required to report on our Board Improvement Plan goals for improving fundamental math skills, promoting student pathways planning and supports, and in creating equitable schools and classrooms for the 2018-2019 school year.
