Prestigious provincial award for Centre Hastings SS
Congratulations to Centre Hastings Secondary School on being awarded the Dr. Bette M. Stephenson Recognition of Achievement.
Centre Hastings SS was recognized, in part, for actions by Grade 9 Math teachers to engage with Grade 7 and 8 teachers from feeder schools for professional learning and planning together.
These efforts have led to educators from elementary and secondary schools having a common understanding and use of strategies to improve student learning. The result: smooth transitions for students moving from elementary school into secondary school.
According to the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO), each year EQAO collects stories of schools that have been successful in using data to improve student achievement. The remarkable outcomes at these schools show how good information can help dedicated professionals identify areas for improvement and make targeted improvements. EQAO shares these stories so that other schools throughout Ontario can learn about their successful practices.
