Day 110 (of 185) a school district or a district of schools?

Day 110 (of 185) a school district or a district of schools?

 

There are times when it can feel that the school is the centre of it’s learning community. But it’s nice to know and recognize that each school is not an isolated entity. And there are times when we get those positive reminders of what a school (district) can do when it is not merely surviving, but thriving!

 

During todays School Growth Plan Discussion, we were able to look over our school growth plan with extra eyes from our school district. And it’s always valuable to have extra eyes take a look at the ‘plan’ – which should be a ‘living document’ and editable as needed. Especially when a lead educator from the ‘central office’ can come in and make connections to work being done around the district that may connect and benefit us! No need to spend a lot of time researching a topic when the work has already been done (like putting up a climbing wall inside a gym)

 

 

There are times where schools feel that they just want to ‘be themselves’ or feel that they are on ‘their own’ (even though they aren’t) So it is invaluable to recognize that we are interconnected more than it may appear on first glance. It is too easy for schools to lose touch with each other (and share their combined knowledge) and feel that they are part of a school district in name only – so it is always nice to be reminded of the power that happens when a school district does work together as a team!

 

 

Looking forward to seeing the continued evolution of our school goals as part of a broader community of learning!
