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 Limestone District School Board (LDSB) Strategic Plan is anchored by three pillars – Wellness, Innovation and Collaboration. Each pillar has three main goals to support improved student achievement and well-being which are each linked to areas of focus and subsequent action plans. To help the Board of Trustees monitor this work, an annual Strategic Action Plan Evaluation Framework (2017-2023) was created to assist the Board in tracking progress of goals. Multiple data sets and evidence are used to evaluate the progress toward the desired outcomes.
This framework uses a traffic light system – green for on target, yellow for making progress, and red for needs further attention – to allow trustees and the public to easily see the status of each initiative. This monitoring report is presented to trustees twice a year – in the spring and again at the end of the year. The Strategic Action Plan: 2022 – 2023 illustrates the progress made in many areas, however, progress was uneven, particularly in areas where we were unable to engage in professional learning based on the stage of the pandemic and/or staffing shortages among occasional/casual staff.
