May 20, 2014 – Post BIPSA Post

“To change we need to have a clear picture of our current reality as well as the goal we want to achieve.”      Jim Knight in Educational Leadership, May 2014.

On Wednesday we met and discussed our current reality in the board: we hashed out what we think we need to do to have effective school improvement plans.  Then the five schools were able to share their common ideas and goals and developed the board improvement plan.

This year the plan stays the course and adds the dimension of Intellectual engagement.  The schools have chosen to focus on the academic press (rigour) of their planning but have pulled out the key concepts of trust and relationships as part of the way to get there.

The day was invigorating and, as usual, brought us a shared vision for the coming year.  Alleluia!
