Achievement and SIP

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

• Student achievement is reported three times per year through a progress report and two provincial report cards for the benefit of parents and their child.

• School Improvement smart goal is set by staff in a collaborative and inquiry based process that takes into account a variety of quantitative and qualitative student data. The focus for the 2013-2014 school year targets literacy. Our goal is to improve written communication skills through a focus on drafting and revising.

• Special awards for students leaving for Middle school, including the Principal’s Award in recognition of contributions to a positive school environment through promotion of student ownership and shared leadership.

• Recognition of school athletic teams at assemblies.

• Student achievement is measured in many different ways. Ongoing classroom assessment and evaluation form the foundation of our student evaluation policy. In addition to classroom aptitude and interest tests, continuous evaluation can include observation, student self-evaluation, teacher/student interviews, checklists and inventories, questionnaires, participation charts, peer and group evaluations, parental input during interview sessions and portfolios. Our teachers work collaboratively to ensure program implementation in all subject areas of the Ontario Curriculum.

• Our students also participate in provincial testing in Grade 3. Their results are on the following page.

School Improvement Plans and Initiatives

The School Improvement Plan for 2013-2014 reflects the Ministry of Education and the OCDSB’s focus on Literacy and Numeracy initiatives. Our School Improvement Plan will focus on specific Curriculum expectations throughout the year. Our goal is to work as a team by establishing common planning, instructional and assessment practices. Our School Improvement Plan details indicators of learning, instructional strategies, professional learning and resources and monitors evidence of learning and overall progress.

Our School Improvement Plan focus this year is to improve written communication skills through a focus on drafting and revising. Teachers lead and participate in various staff development opportunities and share best practices with reference to this focus. They select resources to support their teaching, using a variety of strategies to differentiate instruction in order to meet the needs of each individual child.
