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.
