This update provides a summary of the public meeting of Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board held Monday, December 2, 2013 at the Education Centre. It is an unofficial summary of the meeting; official minutes will be approved at the next meeting in January 2014.

Presentation

Learning is Visible in Our Schools, video

Superintendent of Education Cathy Portt introduced a video titled Learning is Visible in Our Schools. The AiM System Plan articulates our commitment to providing programs and services so that each student can reach his or her full potential. One priority in that plan, Reach High Levels of Student Achievement, further articulates our collective responsibility to ensure that students become global-minded citizens who are capable of thinking critically, problem-solving, communicating, collaborating, creating, innovating, growing with character and developing resiliency and perseverance. The video illustrated the alignment of student learning with our AiM priorities and also with the Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement.
