Enhancing Learner Success in New Westminster Schools
We are excited to share our story of continuous improvement in our schools!
Enhancing Student Learning: Student success in New West schools provides information about who our students are, how they are doing, and how student survey and student achievement data are used.
This data provides valuable information that contributes to our school and district planning processes, and represents information pulled from student engagement, community statistics, and a wide range of other assessment and measurement tools that help us continually refine and improve learning in New Westminster.
The goal of this report is to look at how our strategic priorities, our commitments to barrier-free education and how the Ministry of Education’s Framework for Enhanced Student Learning (FESL) all contribute to student success, as measured by:
- Intellectual Development
- Human & Social Development
- Career Development
To see how this work builds on and is connected to our local strategic and operational plans, you can find our Our Learning Journey: Strategic Plan for 2019-2024 and the related departmental goals here: https://newwestschools.ca/about-us/strategic-planning/
School Learning Plans
Each of our schools and programs has developed a school learning plan identifying key areas for improvement—along with specific goals and strategies that will enhance student success.
Schools are identifying the springboards they need to support student achievement in ways that are “authentic, dynamic and driven by the community rather than by a template,” says Superintendent Karim Hachlaf. For each school, the journey is different – depending on its unique strengths, and its answer to the question: what kind of school do we hope to be?
“What impresses me is the range, flexibility and customization I am seeing in each school community,” Hachlaf notes. “It’s different for each, it’s innovative, and it’s a culture shift from the traditional way of doing things.”
You can find your school’s learning plan under “About Us – Learner Success” on your school’s website, also accessible below.
