CMSD82 Board of Education Vision, Goals & Programs

 

CMSD82 Framework for Enhancing Student Learning

The Framework for Enhancing Student Learning is a new vision by the Ministry of Education.  The Framework replaces many past accountability documents such as the Superintendent’s Report and the Achievement Contract.  The goal of the framework is to develop school district plans and school plans that are collaboratively developed by educational stakeholders within each school district.

To learn more about the Framework for Enhancing Student Learning for Coast Mountains School District 82, please access the following links to the 2017-2020 and 2016-2020 reports:

CMSD82 2017-2020 Framework for Enhancing Student Learning

CMSD82 2016-2020 Framework for Enhancing Student Learning

It is a lens to ensure each student successfully completes their educational program with a sense of hope, purpose and control.  This framework will present an opportunity to determine what is important to Coast Mountains’ learners and create a document that helps to promote continuous learning that is meaningful, sustainable and ensures each student reaches his/her potential.   A window to see the strengths that exist in all our students beyond just the academic and reflect on student success as inclusive of multiple domains including intellectual, human/social and career development.
