2011/12 AERR - The Power to Enrich
Rocky View Schools (RVS) Board of Trustees, Superintendent of Schools, and staff believe that everyone one of our learners is capable of experiencing success in their schooling. In fact, we know this to be true – we are a 21st C learning organization!
RVS 2011 – 2012 Annual Education Results Report captures the ongoing success of our students and jurisdiction as we continue our transformational journey, focusing on “building the power to enrich”. Over the past year, we witnessed high levels of satisfaction with the implementation of our new 2011- 2014 Three Year Plan, having achieved as our baseline, an 80 percent or higher degree of satisfaction in 11 out of 15 outcome areas. Outcome areas with significant high levels of satisfaction include: learners demonstrate global stewardship, instructional design enriches the learning environment, learners use digital technologies to enhance learning, and learning is generative, responsive and multi-dimensional. Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar yielded similar results, with increases made across all but one of the APORI performance measures! Results for First Nations, Métis and Inuit learners, too, reveal these learners are experiencing high degrees of success in eight out of nine APORI performance measures, much higher than provincial averages – some by more than 20 percent!
Our Board could not be more pleased with these positive outcomes, albeit much work remains. An important part of our approach moving forward will be to continue working in partnership with parents and community organizations. Together, we will provide our students with the best possible education, so that each of them can, to the greatest extent possible, continue to learn, grow and thrive in the 21st Century.
