Multi-Year Strategic Plan 




Focus on Our Students:
Visual Identity


The circle is symbolic of the continuous process of our multi-year plan. There is no beginning and no end, but rather a continuum of development. The center and focal point of the circle is our students. Our multi-year strategic plan and the elements within, focus on our students and their best interests.

The colours of our Board are represented in the circle, with each priority given a colour. Our multi-year plan is unique to our school communities in the Region of Halton.

The colours blend into one another, as our priorities are not independent of one another. They work together and are intricately woven together.

The polygons represent the complexities and dimension within each priority. The polygons have three points, representative of our Catholic Faith and the Holy Trinity.

At the base of the visual identity are the Foundational Elements, which support our priorities of Achieving, Believing and Belonging.

 
​ ​

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.

The Strategic Plan establishes the broad priorities that guide our system year to year. ​

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.

Monitoring Our Strategic Plan

Each year, the Director of Education reports back to the Board of Trustees on the specific steps undertaken across our school system to work towards the goals established in our strategic plan. 

2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR (Year 1 of Implementation)​

2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR (Year 2 of Implementation)​

Director's Annual Reports​

In accordance with Section 283.1 of the Education Act, each year the Director of Education reports on the Board's progress towards our strategic goals for the previous year.
