Division Initiatives Alignment

AlignmentRationale

Personalized learning as an instructional strategy can be used to improve student learning and as a means to achieve other Division/provincial initiatives outlined in the provincial Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) A3’s.  Through the creation of a school level A3, schools can work to implement Division, provincial and school level initiatives.

Recommendations/Considerations:

  1. Schools will decide how to use PeBL to support the success of the Division and the provincial initiatives and create a plan to outline actions needed for their school.
  2. Schools will use Professional Development (PD) days to discover how to use PeBL to support the initiatives.
