After many months of community consultation and planning in September, 2016, the Halton Catholic District School Board launched a new multi-year plan.
Focus on Our Students: Strategic Plan 2016-2021 provides direction for the next five years that will guide the decisions and actions that shape us as a school board – who we are, what we do, and why we do it.
Why Strategic Planning?
The Student Achievement and School Board Governance Act, 2009, requires school boards to develop and monitor multi-year plans that achieve the following 3 goals:
1. Promoting student achievement and well-being;
2. Ensuring effective stewardship of the board's resources; and
3. Delivering effective and appropriate education programs to students.
Our Current Plan
Our current multi-year plan, Focus On Our Students: Strategic Plan 2016-2021 identifies specific outcome measures in four broad areas of focus - Achieving, Believing, Belonging, as well as our Foundational Elements. For more information, view the Board report here.
Each year, the Board identifies specific system priorities that are determined to be essential developmental steps in this multi-year process.
Our Strategic Plan establishes the broad priorities that will continue to guide our system year to year. The Board annually identifies specific system priorities that are determined to be essential developmental steps in this multi-year process. While the specific system priorities change annually as specific initiatives are launched, developed and brought to natural completion, the broad directions remain constant, providing the stability required for the system to maintain the sustained focus necessary to attain our goals.
