Communication and Distribution of the Three Year Strategic Plan The Board of Trustees and the Superintendent took the advice from stakeholders, reviewed the October 2009 and May 2010 Accountability Pillar Outcomes, incorporated the Governance Implications from District Accountability Reports, prepared the Plan, and approved the Plan through a series of strategic planning sessions. In accordance with the requirements from Alberta Education this plan was distributed to School Councils, Staff, and Administrators. Each school and local parish also receives a copy of the approved plan. A final copy is also posted to the District’s web site. Schools are then required to complete a school plan that includes goals, measures, targets and strategies. School plans are based on a three-year cycle and are updated annually to incorporate school board directions, input from school councils, teachers, parents and students to address areas for improvement, identified from results. Schools have an obligation to use a variety of methods to communicate their plans with the parents and larger community as well as provide a copy of the plan to the Board.

Jurisdiction Profile: Our Regional Faith Communities Grande Prairie and District Schools encompasses five self-contained and very distinctive communities centered in Beaverlodge, Fairview, Grande Prairie, Sexsmith, and Spirit River. Many families in smaller communities, acreages and farms send their students to the schools in the District. Grande Prairie is the largest urban center in the Peace River region, with an economy based on agriculture, petroleum, forest products, and service industries. The local economy is highly diversified and is characterized by rapid population growth, with smaller reductions in times of economic downturn. The population is very diverse: it is young, yet becoming a retirement community for many rural residents, and has a transient population. The Aboriginal Alberta Education

Page 2

population in Grande Prairie is approximately 9%. Grande Prairie has become a regional trading center for approximately 250,000 people. Many people access services not available in smaller centers. Grande Prairie is a large parish community. One Catholic high school serves the city. Several K-8 Catholic elementary schools are located within the city. Catholic students from the rural areas are bussed to Holy Cross and Kateri Mission Catholic Schools. A review of boundaries is currently underway. Beaverlodge, a rural center 43 km from Grande Prairie, has an economy based on agriculture and petroleum. There has been relatively stable population growth in this community in the past few years, primarily related to the drilling and servicing of natural gas well sites and compression stations. Most students are bussed to St. Maryâ€&#x;s Catholic School; students in grades 10-12 attend the public high school in Beaverlodge. Sexsmith is a growing rural agricultural Centre 20 km north of Grande Prairie. Many residents with homes in Sexsmith are employed in Grande Prairie. Most studentsâ€&#x; travel to St. Maryâ€&#x;s Catholic School by school bus, and high school students attend either the public high school in Sexsmith or St. Joseph Catholic High School in Grande Prairie. Spirit River is a small and close-knit rural community 78 km north of Grande Prairie. The economy is agricultural, with some petroleum activity. Most students travel to Ste. Marie Catholic School by school bus, with students in grades 10-12 attending the public high school in Spirit River. Fairview is a larger town serving a fairly large agricultural area, located 125 km north of Grande Prairie. GPRC, Fairview Campus is located on the southern boundary of town. St. Thomas More Catholic School serves all grades and all Catholic students in the town and surrounding rural area, and is able to provide a modest range of regular and special programs to meet the various needs of its students.

Parent Involvement in School Plans Parents, through School Councils, are required by Regulation (113/2007) to provide advice as schools develop their plans. Principals will work through their plans in May and June and review the Plan with School Councils in June and September/ October of each year. Schools are required to align their plans with District goals, strategies and performance measures. Schools are also required to have their own goals, strategies and performance measures that address specific areas of Issue or Concern in the Accountability Pillar. Through School Council Liaison, the School District will share results and provide interpretation of results. Principals will share their results with School Councils and provide an interpretation of their results.

Mission Statement: We will provide a quality Catholic education which meets the needs of each student and inspires all to live life to their full potential, as caring and competent citizens and Apostles of Christ.

Vision Statements: 1. Our students, staff and their families will create a rich faith culture where the love of Christ and each other will be visible to all who enter our schools. Teachers will be true and authentic Catholic role models; vibrant, caring, nurturing and servant leaders. 2. Our District and our schools are part of a larger faith community where the school, home and parish work together. We offer our students a message of hope and growth; living Christian values of faith, hope and charity; respect and compassion; and present to them the teachings of the Catholic Church. 3. We permeate curriculum with our Catholic Faith, with a dual emphasis on assessment for learning and differentiated instruction resulting in the optimization of human potential for all students in our trust. 4. Our Professional Learning Communities in schools and classrooms focus on continuously improving student achievement and research-based instructional strategies and assessments. 5. Continuous evaluation of programs and personnel ensures that the focus of the jurisdiction is the success of every child. 6. Our partners and stakeholders have meaningful involvement and we have a variety of programs to enhance student learning. 7. Our schools are safe and caring and this environment fosters school communities where students are “Called to Serve� and act as Christian Citizens.

District Programs and Initiatives: Priority Setting The Board met numerous times to discuss the Three Year Education Plan and set Priorities that will assist administration in developing the 2010-2011 Budget. The Board of Trustees believes that the focus of the system must be the success of each student and provides these programs as their assurance. Four words summarize our Catholic school district. They stand for who we are, who we serve, what we strive to do everyday, and signals where we will allocate our resources in 2010-2011.

Aboriginal Education Under the direction of the Director of Student Services and with a mandate to improve student achievement at all levels, Support Workers will be provided to schools with high Aboriginal populations. Aboriginal Support Workers will assist families and students from leaving school early and assisting students in achieving the Outcomes in the Program of Studies. Where additional supports are needed, Workers direct students and families to appropriate services. In addition, additional early literacy supports will be put into schools with a high FMNI population. Under the direction of the Deputy Superintendent of Human Resources, the Catholic Education Centre, in partnership with Alberta Education, will partially fund an individualâ€&#x;s B. Ed. Programs as a means to increase the number of FNMI teachers. We believe that by differentiating instruction and respecting cultural diversities assists with helping all learners achieve to their potential. Alberta Education

Page 4

Under the direction of the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, and AISI project on literacy will implement a teacher-student-coach model in Grade 4 classrooms to assist approximately 20 students who have a reading level significantly below grade level. The model will increase teacher capacity to assist aboriginal children who come into our district classrooms with a reading level that is significantly below grade level.

Advanced Placement & Pre-Advanced Placement At St. Joseph Catholic High School several courses will be offered to students in Grade 12 to improve excellence and transition to academic post-secondary schools. It is our hope that in future years AP courses can be expanded to other areas so all four core classes can be offered as AP courses. Research into Pre-AP will also begin in 20102011.

Administrative Development (CASS Leadership Academy & ATA Leadership) In cooperation with district administrators, College of Alberta School Superintendent, and the provincial ATA we will offer a program to aspiring and new educational leaders so they are better prepared for the change in duties as an administrator. Participation in Start Right, Leading for Learning, and the ATA Fall Leadership presentation will be part of our work.

Balanced Literacy in Grades K-6 All staff in K-6 are expected to incorporate a Balanced Literacy approach into Language Arts courses. This will assist in helping student develop listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing, and visually representing skills in ways that enhance the appropriate skill development of students. Teachers will engage students in shared reading of common texts, class lessons on key reading comprehension strategies, reading aloud, guided reading, literature circles, and independent reading.

Before & After School Child Care & Kinder Care Partnerships: YMCA and ACFA Three Before and After School & Kinder Care Child Care projects are housed in Holy Cross (YMCA), Kateri Mission (YMCA) and St. Gerard (ACFA). They will meet the needs of before and after school care and alternate days Kindergarten care. Spaces are also available to staff on a priority basis through the partnerships. Expansion plans will continue in 2010-2011.

Class Sizes We found that our class sizes are some of the best in the Peace Country, perhaps even the province. We achieved these targets by supplementing the budget with Deferred Class Size Revenue, a target that is now harder to achieve at current levels because Deferred Revenue is significantly depleted. While we recognize that lower classes benefit students and teachers we will increase our class sizes this year.

Communicating the Good News and Customer Service Making people feel welcome and sharing the work that is underway is essential. It begins with greeting stakeholders as they enter our schools, communicating to parents on a regular basis, and showcasing our good work in the media. Various forums will be used to share the Good News including traditional and non-traditional forums. Power School, Twitter and Facebook will all be explored.

Early Literacy Intervention (Grades K-2) This program is based on detailed formal and informal observations of children as readers and writers, with particular attention to what children can do as they learn to read and write. Teachers are better able to diagnose student reading and writing abilities and provide appropriately leveled reading material for their students. They create environments rich with literature, where purpose and collaboration among students, staff, and parents allowed them to celebrate students‟ literacy accomplishments. Specifically we will  Define, develop, and communicate standards and expectations in assessment, teaching and data collection.  Continue to emphasize a strong focus on Division One Language Literacy Intervention. It is our hope that 90% of children leaving Division One who have been with Grande Prairie and District Catholic Schools from Grade One will read at or above grade level by the end of Grade 3.  Develop and communicate a Continuum of Intervention Processes that supports the classroom teacher, the school, and the District.  Research and implement a focused professional development program for K-2 teachers to ensure Early Literacy is being implemented in a consistent manner.

Elementary and Junior High Counseling Services Career and Counseling services are already provided to high school students. Although Mental Health services are offered to students through the Student Health Initiative, the District works in partnership with Catholic Family Alberta Education

Services and two FCSS agencies to provide initial intervention services. More Liaison Workers were hired in August 2006 through Catholic Family Services to assist all elementary & junior high students in Grande Prairie, Sexsmith, Spirit River and Fairview.

English as a Second Language As the region continues to attract individuals who migrate from areas where English is not the first language in the home, we have a responsibility to ensure that students obtain the supports needed to be successful in Catholic schools where English is the first Language. English as a Second Language (ESL) programming will be individualized for the unique needs of each student.

ESL Pre-School To adapt to the changing needs in our area we are piloting an ESL pre-school if there is sufficient need. In partnership with Immigrant Settlement Services at Grande Prairie Regional College we will provide supports that young kids need to be successful in English as a Second Language.

Evangelization/ Faith Permeation (Parish-District) Discussions will occur with all parishes in the District to see if we can support/ improve the numbers of families wanting their child to receive the sacraments offered by the Church. Secondly allowing staff to receive a better understanding of the sacraments will allow for stronger faith-based discussions in the classroom.

Excellence Program Research conducted in 2008-09 determined the best approach to educating students with significantly above average potential. Research will include identification, programming, and possible changes to current programming in the school, classroom, and community.

Focus Schools & Focus Program We currently have one Focus School, Ecole St. Gerard Catholic School, where students have the opportunity to be totally immersed in a French Immersion environment, and one Focus Program, Sports Academy at St. Patrick‟s Catholic School. The purpose of the Focus Schools/ Programs is to address parents demand for more options in a Catholic education context.

French as a Second Language & French Language Cultural Centre To support our District‟s strength in promoting second languages, French will continue to be mandatory from Grades 4 through 7. Resources, additional Professional Development, a stronger single-track French Immersion program, and DELF certification will be the hallmarks of our French Language programming. Research will be conducted to determine if a Middle Immersion/ Late Immersion program is feasible in the long term.

High School Programming for Small High Schools With the introduction of a new small rural high school in Sexsmith, program delivery and flexibility will be essential if the program is to grow and flourish.

Improving Instructional Practices: “Issues & Concerns” by AB Education Successful learning communities use a variety of qualitative and quantitative measures to track both the success of collaborative efforts and their impact on student progress. Some of the strategies incorporated by Study Teams will include:  Focused Study Teams (7-9 teachers) that o Use the Study Guide template to focus units and lesson plans; o Design evidence-based interventions; o Learn about and share research regarding collaborative professional development; o Experiment and try different strategies; o Collaborate when gathering formative/planning data; o Return to the classroom and continue to improve; and, st o Integrate technology with 21 century literacy skills. As part of a responsibility to our students, school plans and data will be monitored at a school and District level to ensure that student learning progress is measured using both qualitative and quantitative data.

Junior Kindergarten (Exceptional 3 and 4 Year Old Children) While many parents may want to give their children a good start by involving them in Junior Kindergarten programs, the first priority is ensuring that at-risk children have access to junior kindergarten programs targeted at meeting their needs and ensuring they come to school ready to learn. Our program is built on programs and initiatives already in place in the province such as Program Unit Funding for young children with severe disabilities, head start programs, and early intervention programs for students with mild or moderate needs. Four designated sites provide in-school support. St. Patrick, St. Clement, St. Mary Beaverlodge and Ste. Marie Spirit River all provide a rich language based program.

Montessori Pre-School (new) Parents want to give their children a head start and enrolling their child in a Junior Kindergarten program is one option. Too often students did not qualify based on the criteria outlined by Alberta Education. Our program is based on meeting the needs of each individual child so they come to Kindergarten ready to learn. Our program is built on a solid program developed and tested for years.

New Teacher Orientation & Mentorship Program An optional one-day new teacher orientation program will assist teachers in a Long Range Planning process, ensuring integration of appropriate instruction, assessment and curriculum Outcomes. There is a desire to provide a faith-based component and partner more closely with the Alberta Teachers‟ Association Local #42. With even the best teacher preparation programs in place, the first year for beginning teachers can be overwhelming. Too often, the „drop and run‟ approach places beginning teachers into the classroom, assumes they‟ll perform like seasoned veterans, and leaves them alone to face an enormous challenge. In partnership with the Local ATA #42, the new program provides just-in-time supports including cohort groups, classroom observations by administrator (initial), regular “recalls”, and a process to assist new teachers with Faith Permeation.

Parent Daytime and Evening Family Sessions With Program Unit Funding we hope to assist families and youngsters with reading skills, speech and language, occupational therapy, physical therapy, music, and faith. Sessions may be one on one or with a group of others who have similar needs. No fee will be charged.

Rural K-12 Catholic Education Several schools in the rural area will have small populations that may get smaller due to the urbanization of Canada. However, these students deserve similar opportunities in various ways. Some opportunities may include collaborating with other smaller high schools to maintain a range of options.

Student Service Projects An amazing opportunity presents itself over 5 days throughout the year. Now only will we come together to provide our community with a hand out but we will also help with a hand up. As we live the Gospels with our students we hope that this district-wide activity develops meaningful short term and long term projects.

Study Guides for Junior High, High School, & Areas with Issue/Concern This initiative will be maintained for several more years to allow teachers to pursue and understand their curriculum in a deeper way. Combined with a change in instruction & assessment, these guides will improve the ways in which teachers meet the needs of students.

Student Retreats A key part of the work we do involves bringing kids closer to Christ. As Middle Years and High School students question their world, retreats provide the unique opportunity to reflect on their desire to understand Christ and bring Him into their lives. A specific opportunity will be developed for junior/high school students to help support Mission 2010.

Technology in the Classroom Funding will be made available to add more Laptop Labs, Smart Boards, and Classroom Computers into the majority st of District classrooms over a three-year period. Research into implementation of 21 century technology such as “iPad” technology, Moodle, and Media Literacy will also commence.

Trends and Issues Change is coming to classrooms and school districts in Alberta. The release of Inspiring Education, Setting the Direction, Inspiring Change, and a new Education Act will probably push and challenge educators to do their very best to meet the needs of students in existing and new ways. AS these reports unfold we will examine how to best incorporate the ideas into our day to day work. Other challenges include 

Predictable and stable funding. The province is encouraging Boards to runs deficits that parallel the 2.92% teacher increase in an attempt not to lose young teachers. There is a verbal commitment to fund this increase but a commitment to provide the funds has not yet been made.

Increasing population. The population of young children is booming in the City. Having a school planned and ready for opening in 4 to 5 years will require the province to be proactive in the funding and construction of a new facility. A second high school is also needed. A facility and programming review will be undertaken to assist in long term planning.

People Resources. The past decade saw Grande Prairie and area grow beyond expectations placing considerable strains on existing resources. Planning for growth and adequate teacher supply will be essential.

Demand for a Catholic Education. One may not see a problem with more and more families wanting to access our schools. Increasingly families of Catholic and non-Catholic faiths are asking us to provide their children with formation opportunities that traditionally were strongly offered by the family.

Strategies 

Over a three-year period, the District will open Junior High/High School CTS facilities at Mother Teresa (Grande Prairie) & St. Mary‟s (Sexsmith). All City students will have access to these facilities by combining junior high options at several schools and bussing kids to the appropriate facilities. This idea was piloted for all junior high schools in 2009-2010 and met with a high degree of student success. Originally some individuals were concerned for students because they might not adapt. Many students knew one another from various community activities and friendships were quickly rekindled.

High School programming will be introduced and expanded at St. Mary‟s Sexsmith once the new school is opened.

STM High School and St. John Bosco have piloted new ADLC courses that provide the classroom teacher with ready-made material and lesson plan. Courses may include Forensics 25/35 and Cosmetology. Lessons learned from these two schools will be incorporated into St. Mary‟s Sexsmith High School program.

interest in a student‟s life, individuals feel more connected and are less likely to drop out.

Early Literacy Intervention programs in Grades K-2 will assist struggling readers and writers. If students are at grade level as readers and writers they will probably achieve success in all of their classes. As a result students feel more connected and are less likely to drop out. Counselors are placed at the high school level both for personal and career counseling. Catholic Family Services provides initial intervention supports for elementary and junior high students. Student retreats at various grades rekindle the spirit inside many students and provide a sense of belonging.

Strategies       

A new online student marks program will be introduced at the junior and senior high school level in all schools so parents can track student progress and assist with completion of assignments (hopefully the parents don‟t do the assignments… only encourage students to complete them). A new Outcomes based Junior High Report Card will be in its second year. An emphasis on outcomes reporting should ensure a stronger correlation of instruction-assessment. Ensure that staff articulate outcomes to students in frequent and regular ways. Administration and teachers will emphasize the importance of making progress towards achieving all of the essential outcomes in the Program of Studies. Curriculum-based “Study Guides” will be developed for all junior high school and high school core classes. Students are encouraged to take a full course load in grade 10 and 11. A Superintendent‟s scholarship is awarded to all students who complete 120++ courses within three years.

Strategies School Planning and Improvement Process – Principals and School-Based Leadership Teams (SBLT) will create a 3-year plan with student-focused SMART goals in relation to student need. Annual year plans will be developed with specific actions to be taken to address student needs. Plans will also address how issues and concerns will specifically be targeted. Collaborative Days Planning and Reporting. The Principal and SBLT will plan Professional Development Days so staff learning needs are met in relation to student outcomes. Collaborative days will include a balance of whole school learning and study team time. Teacher Professional Development Plans. Teachers will develop “living” Professional Development Plans that identify and track one SMART professional goal in relation to their Study Team goal and one faith goal. Common Year-End Assessments: Grade 7 & 8 Math and Grade 7 ELA Common summative assessments will be developed and utilized in Math across the District over a three year period. Common Assessments The Kindergarten Literacy Test, Fountas & Pinnell, CAT IV, and/ or Basic Reading Inventory (where appropriate) will serve as a diagnostic assessment tool providing formative assessment for teachers to plan instruction for students. Accountability and Monitoring: School Action Plans. Annually the Principals will meet with the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, and the Trustees to present their school‟s action plans based on their results in Achievement exams, Diploma exams, and common District assessments. Accountability and Monitoring: Assistant Superintendent/ Principal and Superintendent/Principal School Improvement Plans Accountability Meetings. Through a series of meetings with the Superintendent, Principals ensure an alignment of Teacher Professional Development Plans with District Goals and Outcomes and School Goals and Outcomes. Accountability and Monitoring: Superintendent/ Principal Curricular Accountability meetings. Through a series of meetings with the Superintendent, Principals will provide information on how they are monitoring individual teacher‟s delivery of the Outcomes. *The percentages achieving the acceptable standard include the percentages achieving the standard of excellence. Notes: 1) Aggregated PAT results are based upon a weighted average of Acceptable or Excellence percent meeting standards. The weights are the number of students in the cohort for the course. 2) Student Learning Achievement: PAT results reported are weighted averages of PAT Acceptable and PAT Excellence results. Courses included: ELA(Grades 3, 6, 9), Math(Grades 3, 6, 9), Science(Grades 6, 9), French Language Arts(Grades 6, 9), Français(Grades 6, 9). 3) Aggregated Diploma Examination results are based upon a weighted average of percent meeting standards (Acceptable, Excellence). The weights are the number of students writing the Diploma Examination for each course. Courses included: English Lang Arts 30-1, English Lang Arts 30-2, French Lang Arts 30, Français 30, Pure Mathematics 30, Applied Mathematics 30, Social Studies 30, Social Studies 33, Biology 30, Science 30. 4) Diploma Examination Participation rates are based upon a cohort of grade 10 students who are tracked over time. The table shows the percentage of students in this cohort who complete diploma exams by end of their third year of high school. 5) Please note that the rules for Rutherford Scholarships changed in 2008/09, which increased the number of students eligible for Rutherfords. The history for the measure has been re-computed to allow for trends to be identified. 6) Data values have been suppressed where the number of students is less than 6. Suppression is marked with an asterisk (*).

Too few jurisdictions offer Franรงais (Grades 6, 9) for an Achievement Evaluation to be calculated. However, the results from Franรงais (Grades 6, 9) are included in the aggregation of all PAT courses. Achievement Evaluations for Social Studies 6 and Social Studies 9 are not calculated due to the change in the tests.

In classrooms and in public forums, all stakeholders need to continue to articulate the importance of an educated Albertan. Provide students with access to High School Career Fair presentations and opportunities so they can see how an education is important in the trades and professional careers. Provide support for St. Gerard Grade 9s to attend Edmonton-based career fairs. Provide funding for Regional, Provincial and National Skills competitions. The Career Practitioners projects in partnership with Peace Wapiti will encourage students in junior and senior high to pursue a post secondary education. Practitioners will focus on the possibilities in terms of increased salary and advancement if students have a post secondary education. Work with the new Careers Next Generation personnel in the Peace Region to assist students with career-related Work Experience and RAP opportunities.

Take time to explain to students what “citizenship” is and how it is lived out in a Catholic context. Remind students that an activity that is undertaken is part of our work to create more responsible and caring people. Talk with students about the importance of regularly “doing good” without being noticed. All students will participate in the District‟s Year Long Service Project. The 5 main “days” will be the focus of service in our regional communities. Promote the “5 Day Service Project” using the media and other forums as a means to show case the good work undertaken by our students in our schools. Refer to Goal #1.

Strategies 

Hire Aboriginal Support Workers to work in school with high FMNI populations. Workers will focus their attention on improving student achievement by ensuring students attend school, parents are involved in activities like parent teacher interviews, and at home support with reading and school work.

Offer evening pre-school and early years family programming with an Aboriginal perspective.

Ensure Support Workers complete home visits for students at risk of not meeting course/attendance requirements.

Aboriginal Support Workers review report card marks to determine which students need more one-on-one attention.

A home-school Liaison program will be established to assist parents with reading and parents skills.

Re-scope one AISI project where a focus is on selecting one student in each grade 4 class (aboriginal preference). The teacher, student, and AISI literacy person will work with a child in the classroom to improve the student‟s individual achievement and the teacher‟s capacity to deal with readers who are several levels below expectation.

Hold at least three District Council Liaison meetings where the Board/ Admin meet with School Council Chairs/ Principals. The purpose of the meetings is to share ideas and seek clarification. Outline to parents at various times how we involve them in decisions/ advice/ planning. Encourage schools to involve their parents in a participatory way. Ask parents, “Is there anything we can do for you”, knowing that we might not be able to provide everything that they want but at least we are more open to listen. Ask School Council Chairs what their expectations are and help them understand their responsibilities and limitations.

Charts See attachments How We Will Manage Our Deficit Per our conversation with Minister Hancock on May 17, 2010 he has advised us that he will be providing us with the 2.92% funding to cover the Teacher AAWE for 2010-11, although he did not specify when. This would provide us with an additional estimated base funding of $674,800 to help cover off the projected deficit of $768,858, leaving $94,058 to be covered by a combination of draws from deferred revenue and operating reserves.

Should the Minister renege on that commitment we will be forced to draw down more from deferred and we would have to generate operational surpluses in subsequent years by reducing our staffing levels further. For more information about the District’s budget or to obtain a copy of the Audited Financial Statement (AFS) contact the Catholic Education Centre and ask for the Secretary-Treasurer, at (780) 532-3013 or email us at cec@gpcsd.ca
