School Improvement Plan

Our 2013/2014 School Improvement Plan

Our plan incorporates various aspects of our board’s work including:

– Our trustees’ Multi-Year Plan

– Our Director, Ken Thurston‘s Annual Plan

– Our overall Board Improvement Plan

We arrived at this plan through our past work, current data on student achievement, board and Ministry of Education goals and feedback from staff, students and parents.

The plan is our guide for our work as a school this year. It is important to note that the SIP is not everything we do in the school; no single document can capture the scope of our work. Rather, the plan contains our focus areas for all of us to work collaboratively on throughout this school year. It is two pages and has the following key focus areas:

– Literacy

– Numeracy

– Equity and inclusive education

– Well Being

The plan’s template is standardized throughout the board and mirrors the Board Improvement Plan in it’s layout. It outlines our plan, design and implementation strategies and a section for monitoring our work. The plan also contains hyperlinks within it to allow you to delve deeper into some of the strategies, resources, policies and procedures that guide our work. (note that a few links are accessible only by YRDSB staff).

Finally, it is important to know that the plan is not fixed. Rather, it is a living document. We need to refer back to it, assess it’s impact, modify it as necessary and allow it to evolve based on our feedback, successes and emerging school needs. It needs to be a working document.

We welcome your feedback either here on the blog, in person or at  school council meetings.

The plan guides our work, but “the work” itself is what happens each day at Lorna Jackson.

We look forward to that journey together.
