A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT - THE BOARD'S NEW STRATEGIC PLAN 2022-2027
Good afternoon Parents/Guardians,
The Saanich Board of Education is working on a new
Strategic Plan. The Board is committed to engaging with its communities to
develop its 2022-2027 Strategic Plan for our district. It is critical
that we hear from parents / guardians, students, staff and the broader
community so that we can build a plan that reflects our community. A
first step in this consultation process is an opportunity for you to provide
feedback in a survey. You will find the link to the survey at the end of
is a Strategic Plan?
A Strategic Plan is the school district’s road map for
action and future student success. The specific goals and strategies that
are central to the Plan are shaped by the district’s core values and beliefs,
vision, philosophy, mission, and guiding principles, all of which create the
framework for everything we do to support our learning community. The
Strategic Plan utilizes provincial and local student achievement evidence to
inform us about what needs to be prioritized. These priorities then help shape overall
district planning, budget priorities and district operations.
Successful organizations are laser focused in their
Strategic Plans, using a few core areas that are evidence-based – areas that
are critical when we are looking to improve student success throughout the
are the Draft Focus Areas that have been Developed so far?
Using both provincial and local school district data, we
have worked to identify three main focus areas over the last several
months. They are:
- Indigenous Learner Success
- Mental Health & Wellness
The data shows that these are areas we likely need to
spend more time on to ensure that students have the greatest opportunities here
and in their futures. You can find some of the data we used in our review
can I Participate in the Consultation?
We have created an e-survey where you can provide
feedback on the draft focus areas – comment on just a few areas or all of them
– the option is yours. There is also an opportunity to provide thoughts
on other areas that the Board may want to consider.
STRATEGIC PLAN 2022/2027 – CONSULTATION SURVEY
