As previously shared with you, Friday, April 29, is our second of two designated Curriculum Implementation Days for the 2015-2016 school year. These days are specifically dedicated to British Columbia’s redesigned K-12 curriculum that is being phased in over the next three years. Coast Mountains’ teachers and administrators have been doing some amazing and innovative work to transition to this redesigned curriculum.  The Curriculum Implementation Day planned on April 29 is a Non-Instructional Day as communicated via the school district’s Amended 2015-2016 School Calendar.  This day will be used to give Coast Mountains’ teachers and administrators time to become more familiar with the new curriculum.

The Framework for Enhancing Student Learning formalizes the planning and reporting requirements within school districts to enhance student learning and success.  The Framework reflects a public commitment by education partners to work together to continuously improve student learning in relation to intellectual, human and social, and career development.  The Framework helps align provincial K-12 accountability requirements with other ongoing transformation efforts (e.g., curriculum, competencies, assessment, communicating student learning, graduation program) and evidence-based practices that enhance student learning.

The Framework replaces previous mandatory planning, reporting, and accountability requirements, specifically Achievement Contracts, Superintendent’s Reports on Student Achievement, District Literacy Plans, School Planning Councils, and the work of Superintendents of Achievements.
