Director’s Plans and Reports
The Upper Grand District School Board’s Annual Report includes messages from the Director and Chair, and information about the Board’s vision, guiding principles and goals for improvement. A focus of the report are the four priorities of the Strategic Plan: achieve excellence, promote well-being, ensure equity of access and opportunity, and enhance public confidence.
Board Improvement Plan
In May 2009, the newly formed Student Achievement Division of the Ministry of Education announced the introduction of a Kindergarten to Grade 12 Board Improvement Plan process. Ontario school boards have flexibility in the design of their plan and the documents are to be viewed as working documents.
The Board invited input from a wide variety of stakeholders to assist with the review of its vision, mission and guiding principles. Stakeholder input was also used to develop four goals: achieve excellence, promote well-being, ensure equity of access and opportunity, and enhance public confidence. The Board’s Strategic Plan is a living document that will be reviewed and renewed.
Specific achievement plans for each of the strategies in the Strategic Plan were developed and included in the Operational Plan. This plan also includes measurable outcomes and the steps to be taken to accomplish them.
