MVSD 2016-2021 Division Plan
Keeping Learners at the Centre
Mountain View School Division Board of Trustees launched an extensive consultative process to update the Division’s Strategic Plan. Starting in November 2015, the Board of Trustees hosted forums. The forums were structured as small group conversations, and participants were asked to respond to a set of focus questions designed to gather information on what stakeholders perceived as necessary components of effective educational programming to meet the needs of all students well into the future. The feedback from parents, students, staff, and community forums was instrumental in assisting the Division in setting its strategic direction. Additionally, multiple sources of information, including school, division, and provincial level data were used to measure progress, provide direction, and set outcomes.
The 2016-2021 Division Plan will provide direction and will strengthen Mountain View School Division’s commitment to continuous improvement in student achievement and staff effectiveness. To that end, the Division Plan is based on two strategic directions – Student Learning and Student Well-being and each strategic direction has 2-3 focus areas. The Student Learning strategic direction focus areas are: literacy, numeracy and career education. The Student Well-being strategic direction focus areas are: mental health and safe and caring schools. Each focus area has a desired goal, indicators of success strategies to support movement towards each goal, data collection tools used to measure progress, and a detailed action plan to facilitate implementation of the plan.
It is important to note, the Division Plan is a “living” document and will be updated by division staff, parents, students, and the education community through the structures created in the planning cycle. Senior Administrative staff will incorporate such updates and modifications in the planning documents and bring forward to the Board of Trustees, as required. As the Division progresses down this strategic path, it will continue to foster a climate for growth and improvement, recognizing the tremendous responsibility of educating all children.
