The Limestone District School Board (LDSB) 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.
In reflecting on the 2022-2023 school year, or any other school year, it is important to remember Kathy Freston’s wise words: “The goal is progress, not perfection.”
It has been a privilege to serve as the Chair of the Limestone District School Board of Trustees in this first term of a new four-year term in office. I would like to thank my fellow trustees for the work that we have undertaken focusing on learning and leading in safe and inclusive environments.
Three new trustees joined seven incumbents as a result of the November 2022 school board elections, including the historic addition of the first Indigenous Trustee appointed by the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. The issue of representation and having an Indigenous voice at the Board level has been a topic of considerable discussion by trustees in recent years. The addition of an Indigenous Trustee to the Board, now brings the number of officials to ten.
Our Strategic Priorities
School Boards in Ontario are required to develop a Multi-Year Strategic Plan 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 LDSB Strategic Plan 2017-2023 is anchored by three pillars – Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration.
