February 23rd, 2016
This is a reminder of our scheduled Professional Activity (PA) Day this Friday – Friday, February 26, 2016. There will be no school for WRDSB students.
This additional day was added to the calendar recently as a result of recent labour settlements. All of our teaching and support staff will be busy meeting in their schools.
Elementary staff will spend the morning focusing on student learning, achievement and well-being. This work will vary from school to school, depending on the learning priorities identified at each school. Math has also been identified as an important area of focus, and time may be spent focusing on this Ontario Ministry of Education goal. In the afternoon, elementary staff will focus on health and safety training that supports the well-being of students and staff.
Secondary staff will spend the morning and afternoon focusing on student learning, supporting the diverse needs of our students, reviewing data and assessment practices, and collaborating on school improvement initiatives.
