A lens to ensure each student successfully completes their educational program in Prince Rupert with a sense of hope, purpose, and control.
What is the Framework (for Enhancing Student Learning)? A new vision by the Ministry of Education, the Framework replaces many past accountability documents like the Superintendent’s Report and the Achievement Contract. The goal of the Framework is to develop school district plans and school plans that are collaboratively developed by educational stakeholders of SD52. Our chance to determine what is important to our SD52 learners and create a document that helps to promote continuous learning that is meaningful, sustainable & ensures each student reaches his/her potential. An opportunity to see the strengths that exist in all our students beyond just the academic and reflect on student success as inclusive of multiple domains including intellectual, human & social, and career development.
The Framework allows us to ask “what does learning look like?”
The Framework gives us the opportunity to ask “what does student success look like?
The Framework allows us to reflect on what's important to learning including our present SD52 beliefs … We must continue to build positive relationships with our students and their families. When children feel safe, secure, and attached, they are more likely to experience overall success. Effective and reflective instruction is important to student learning. We need to strive to connect learning with students past experience and background knowledge so every student has an entry point to new concepts. We know that lessons with cultural relevance are more engaging to our aboriginal students. Beliefs established by District Implementation Team 2013-2014
SD52 beliefs continued… We need to provide students with timely, relevant, descriptive feedback. We need to allow for student choice and personalization. We need to deliver instruction in different ways to the learners in our classrooms. We need to allow learners to demonstrate their learning in different ways. We need students to understand how they learn best and how they improve their ability to learn. Beliefs established by District Implementation Team 2013-2014
The Framework Teams Small Frame Group Big Frame Group The Small Frame is a group presently meeting to brainstorm & guide the Framework development based on a draft model by Ministry of Education. Teachers Trustees Principals Students Management The Big Frame will be comprised of a group of interested stakeholders that will view the draft Framework for Enhancing Student Learning document and provide feedback.

This Year’s Planning (2015-2016) The Framework for Enhancing Student Learning November Examining The Framework and developing an open-ended survey to help guide our Framework. December Revising the survey. Following up on a recommendation to share the new curriculum and Framework in a public forum in January, 2016. January Public forum on New Curriculum and The Framework. Determining dates for survey. Regional Meeting with Northern districts to discuss the Framework. February/March SD52 Education Survey – involves grade 4-12 participants and adults. April Small Frame to examine our survey results and determine what to focus on in The Framework. May Examine finalized Ministry of Ed Framework document. Share The Framework and Survey results with Big Frame. June Propose goals and a tentative Framework. Share goals with school admin so they can share with their school teams and start planning their School Improvement Plans for 2016-17 with the Framework in mind. Post the proposed Framework for Enhancing Student Learning on SD 52. School Improvement Plans (SIP) A 3 year cycle from 2014-2016 A document that identifies an area for improvement, has a plan of support/structures/strategies, followed by an evaluation of the effectiveness and possible revisions of goals. New Cycle begins next school year September/October Examining last year’s SIP data and goals with interested stakeholders. Reviewing Summary and Where to Next components. October/ November Share with stakeholders and based on input make revisions or tweaks and ensure appropriate data collection in place. May Collecting data. With SIP committee, reviewing data and making recommendations. June Share SIP with individual school stakeholders and SD52 Trustees. Post School Improvement Plans on the SD 52 website.
The 2016 Survey to guide our Framework There were 3 steps to our local SD 52 survey. 1. The SHARE step (see questions in next two slides) in which three open ended questions were asked of adults and grade 4 – 12 students. 2. The STAR step in which participants saw SHARE responses and could star the ones they most agreed with. 3. The Analysis which provided the top thoughts and will help guide our SD52 Framework.
Adult Survey 1. In order for school to be more useful or interesting to a child I care about, I would like more _________? 2. In order for school to be more useful or interesting to a child I care about, I would like less _________? 3. Share some stories of YOUR best experiences in school.
Student Survey 1. In order for school to be more useful or interesting, I would like more _________? 2. In order for school to be more useful or interesting, I would like less _________? 3. Share some stories of YOUR best experiences in school.
Proposed Planning Cycle for 2016-2017 Framework September Small Frame reviews plan for 2016-2017 Framework to Enhance Student Learning with Principals. Principals share Framework with their School Improvement Plan (SIP) teams and begin assessing/developing plans for next 3 - 4 year cycle of SIP’s. Implementation Day - Principals share elements of Framework and proposed SIP’s with staff and any requirements for evidence of learning at both the school level and district level. October/November Small Frame meets with Big Frame to review plans for 2016-2017 Framework and to determine needs/services to support staff development to implement goals of Framework. Share with Joint Pro-D the goals of the Framework as well as discuss the kinds of professional development that will support these goals. Principals share Framework and SIP’s with PAC’s.
January Share Framework goals and ideals as well as New Curriculum information in a community meeting. March/April Collect evidence of student learning that supports Framework and SIP’s. Share evidence of learning for goals of Framework with Big Frame. May Post updated Framework with evidence of student learning on SD 52 website. Share updated School Improvement Plan’s with SIP team, PAC and staff. Post SIP’s on SD52 website. June Small Frame to review Framework goals, structures and strategies and make adjustments for the 2017-18 school year.

Elements of Framework A system-wide focus on intellectual, human, and social, and career development. These goals broaden the focus of the previous framework to better reflect the whole learner and align with the provincial Mandate for the School System. School district and school plans are to be developed with careful consideration of these goals and the local context. Meaningful and effective planning for continuous improvement. Under this Framework, school districts and schools will be expected to continue to develop multi-year district and school plans, but in a manner that is more relevant to local contexts and needs. School districts will now be required to produce only one district plan, instead of multiple plans. Plans will be expected to reflect local efforts to support each student and specific groups of students, including Aboriginal students, children in care, and students with special needs. The plans will be public reports to and for their local community. Boards must develop and publicly communicate a process for developing, reviewing, refining, and approving school district and school plans, and, in the spirit of collaboration, for including local education partners in this process. “Framework for Enhancing Student Learning.” http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/administration/kindergarten- to-grade-12/enhancing-student-learning“Framework for Enhancing Student Learning.” http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/administration/kindergarten- to-grade-12/enhancing-student-learning, BC Ministry of Ed, Jan. 2016.

Elements of Framework Effective communication of evidence, reported at least annually, by districts and the province. The province and districts will report at least annually on overall results, as well as results for Aboriginal students, children in care, and students with special needs. Evidence should be meaningful and inform the school district’s and school’s plan and priorities for enhancing student learning. System-wide capacity building through team-based supports focused on continuous improvement. The Ministry of Education and its education partners will work together to utilize existing structures (e.g., partner chapters, non-instructional days) and build new team-based supports to act on provincial and local priorities for enhancing student learning (e.g., a provincial team to support Aboriginal learners). Linkages with existing local agreements (e.g., Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreements) to ensure consistent and meaningful support. “Framework for Enhancing Student Learning.” http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/administration/kindergarten- to-grade-12/enhancing-student-learning“Framework for Enhancing Student Learning.” http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/education-training/administration/kindergarten- to-grade-12/enhancing-student-learning, BC Ministry of Ed, Jan. 2016.
