Much like the previous year, 2020-2021 was again punctuated by the COVID-19 pandemic and additional school lockdowns. Despite these ongoing challenges, staff and students remained focused on learning and supporting each other’s well-being. The Limestone District School Board Director’s Annual Report provides a brief snapshot of continued progress on our multi-year strategic plan anchored by the pillars of Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration.
While the school year began with a return to in-person learning, everyone – students, staff, families and partners – all had to adjust to a very different environment including new routines and safety protocols. While Limestone also experienced its first cases of COVID-19 in schools, staff worked diligently along KFL&A Public Health to contain and track cases to limit spread to broader school communities.
It continues to be my privilege to serve as Chair of the Limestone District School Board of Trustees. School boards across Ontario faced ongoing challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic during the 2020-2021 school year. Despite this, the Board of Trustees continued to move ahead with its governance and advocacy work.
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.
