Results show that schools in our district have a learning environment that is welcoming, caring, respectful, and safe. The district holds in high regard the respect for equity and diversity including an awareness of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit culture in the classroom, intentionally creating an inclusive environment.
Continue to provide professional development opportunities for teachers to gain more knowledge, skill, and awareness of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit culture giving them needed tools to incorporate across the curriculum.
Access to Supports & Services
Provincial survey results reveal that an overall average of 85.4% of teachers, parents and students have the appropriate access to supports and services at school, even though, as a private school system, our access to free resources and services is limited compared to what is available to public schools.
As members of AISCA, we have access to services and supports that we otherwise would not.
Our investment in the employment of a district-wide learning coach and three councelors is proving to be of significant support to our students.
Our district continues to provide access to appropriate supports and services, at the school level, to meet the needs of students. Being members of AISCA has further solidified our ability to provide the appropriate supports and services.
A full-time district-wide learning coach supports individual and classroom-wide student learning needs and resource accessibility.
Strengthening connections to local AHS personnel for our schools would provide additional avenues of support opportunities for our students..
