The plan has identified the key areas where the Division would like to improve, focusing on academic success including literacy and numeracy, vocational and special education, student engagement, promoting social and academic success, increased aboriginal student engagement and mental wellness for the well being of staff and students.
The Board received assistance developing their plan from Jamie Arnold with the Manitoba School Board Association. Darcy Snyder was hired as a full time mental wellness worker and will start in September taking some pressure off the current resource teachers. The Division has set some broader goals for academic success with the new plan. Trustee Angela Simpson said the plan encompasses everything the Board would like to see done by 2019.
