Building the Power to Enrich - Year Two
We know our unique approach to learning is working. Our students are achieving exceptional academic results and are demonstrating their capability to be self directed and critical complex thinkers through a wide variety of classroom, school, and community-based initiatives.
Of course our students’ success depends on the joint effort everyone in our communities. Our parents, our partners, our teachers and employees all contribute to student success. As we embark on Year 2 of Rocky View Schools’ 2011-2014 Three Year Plan, we will continue to focus on “building the power to enrich” by bringing even greater attention to the plan’s four main drivers: ensuring universal accessibility, focusing on personalized, authentic-based learning, building 21st Century competencies, and accelerating research and innovation. We also will continue to build new models of learning, to breathe new life into the K-12 curriculum, and to inspire learners to construct and deepen their knowledge and understanding, and to embrace emerging technologies to expand our learning environments. More importantly, we will continue to deepen our networking power to extend learning beyond the walls of our classrooms.
We invite you to help build the power to enrich by reading through and becoming familiar with our second "digital" Three Year Plan for the 2011-2014 school years. An abbreviated, paper version of the plan will be distributed to school councils, staff, educational and municipal partners in the fall. It also will be available through RVS' Education Centre at 2651 Chinook Winds Drive, SW, Airdrie.
