Every Student Succeeds
Division Assurance Survey

Thank you to our parents, guardians, students, and staff who engaged with us by completing our Division Assurance Surveys. The input from the 6,766 participants informs our planning for the 2021-2022 school year and will be reflected in the Division 3 Year Education Plan. Division surveys are one way for our education partners to engage in the assurance process.

What's next?

Updated 3-Year Education Plans are being developed by the Division, and each of our 18 schools. Those plans will describe  the priorities, desired outcomes and strategies that will be used in Division schools to achieve our goals over the next 3 years. These plans will identify the evidence that will be used to assess our progress and guide planning and decision making to support continuous improvement. A key feature of the new plans will be an increased focus on engagement with School Councils, our parents, our staff and our students to inform school and Division priorities.

The Division 3 Year Education Plan will be available in early June and individual school plans will be posted on school websites by the end of September.  At the end of November, school and Division Annual Education Results Reports will be shared with our school communities. They will provide an update on our growth in each of the plan's priority areas.

Planning, for next year, is informed at the school and Division level by the results of our 2020-2021 Assurance Survey. One highlight of the results is the need to increase our work with our students to help them have a more active voice in their schools. When students are more actively involved in developing a shared responsibility for what happens in their school, they will feel more connected to their school and will be better prepared to succeed personally and academically. In 2021-2022 our schools will be engaging with our parents who have children on Individual Program Plans (IPP) and Individual Behaviour Support Plans (IBSP) to ensure the goals and strategies identified in individualized plans align with the individual needs of our students.

Thank you for contributing to our planning and supporting the continuous improvement in the Grande Prairie Public School Division.
