Proud to be… Leaders in Learning

It is a privilege for me, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, to present the 2010-2011 Annual Report for Rainbow District School Board to the Premier of Ontario, the Minister of Education, and our many partners in Sudbury, Espanola, Manitoulin Island and Shining Tree. In the 2010-2011 school year, trustees worked with Executive Council and staff to renew the Board’s vision, mission, values and priorities and map out a multi-year strategic plan. Ensure success for all remains our first and foremost priority as we bring learning to life, enabling students to fulfill their aspirations. This Annual Report, which provides a snapshot of the key activities undertaken in the 2010-2011 school year, celebrates student success. It also pays tribute to the leadership of elected trustees, the dedication of staff and the commitment of parents and community partners who supported students on their journey in learning. Once again, the school year was marked by many success stories. They included the launch of full day, every day Junior Kindergarten, the introduction of the new Early Learning Program, and the implementation of the Welcome to Kindergarten orientation sessions in all schools. At the secondary level, students continued to have many ways to achieve their secondary school diploma, including students who left school and came back.

Through many policies, programs and projects, Rainbow District School Board demonstrated its ongoing commitment to all learners in all areas – early learning, special education, First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education, French as a Second Language, character development, equity and inclusive education, and adult education. With the support of the Province of Ontario, Rainbow District School Board also continued to revitalize its schools, giving students access to the best programming possible in quality school facilities. Significant construction projects in 2010-2011 included the renewal of Princess Anne Public School and Sudbury Secondary School. An accommodation review was also completed for Sudbury South. In closing, I would like to thank the Province of Ontario for its ongoing investment in public education. I would also like to commend staff in Rainbow Schools for nurturing and fostering student success. We are proud to be leaders in learning.

Message from the Chair of the Board


Message from the Director of Education

Proud to bring… Learning to Life

In the 2010-2011 school year, we continued to focus our energy and resources on higher levels of student achievement, reduced gaps in student achievement and  increased public confidence in publicly funded education. With the support of trustees, staff, parents and the community, Rainbow District School Board achieved positive outcomes in its priorities – ensure success for all, ensure efficient resource management and promote succession planning. This Annual Report reflects some of the key initiatives implemented in these areas as Rainbow District School Board inspired success for all students by reaching minds and touching hearts. I commend the Province of Ontario for continuing to support education as the foundation for a bright and prosperous future. With a focus on student success from the early years to secondary graduation, young people are acquiring the skills they need to become confident, well-rounded, critical thinkers. They are being prepared to build positive and productive lives as capable and contributing members of society. With efficient resource management, we are investing our financial resources in those areas where they are having the greatest impact. We are reducing surplus space, renewing our aging schools, and allocating capital dollars to provide quality learning environments for students, with green technology wherever possible. We are also giving students access to 21st century tools, making learning dynamic and relevant. By promoting succession planning, we are ensuring a high level of instructional leadership for the benefit of students, now and in the years to come. An important component of succession planning is valuing and nurturing school and work environments where all students and staff feel safe and welcome. We will continue to embrace equity and inclusion and embed its principles in all that we do. As always, our extended school community plays a critical role in helping us mentor our future leaders through parent involvement, scholarship support, Co-operative Education and other hands-on learning opportunities. On behalf of Rainbow Schools, I would like to thank our parents and partners for working with us to support student success. I would also like to thank all staff for their individual and collective contribution. We are proud to bring learning to life.

Reaching minds. Touching hearts. Bill 177, the Student Achievement and School Board Governance Act, 2009, mandates that each school board create a multi-year strategic plan. In the spring of 2010, Rainbow District School Board held a strategic planning session to set the direction for Rainbow Schools over the next four years. The Board developed vision and mission statements and adopted values. Three priorities were also established - ensure success for all, ensure efficient resource management and promote succession planning. The Board approved the vision, mission, values and priorities on June 20, 2011. Following this, staff worked diligently to articulate broad goals under each priority. These goals form the foundation for the Board Improvement Plan. Updated annually, the plan outlines strategies to improve student learning and achievement and ensure success for all. The vision, mission, values, priorities and goals are highlighted in Strategic Directions 2011-2015, which was approved by the Board on September 27, 2011 and subsequently shared with staff, parents/guardians and the community. Strategic Directions and the Rainbow District School Board’s multi-year plan are available on the Board’s website –  www.rainbowschools.ca/about/strategicDirections.php

Rainbow District School Board implemented a number of measures in the past year to improve learning outcomes: Learning Cycles

All elementary and secondary schools participated in four eight-week learning cycles led by the Principal and supported by program staff in many schools. Schools used assessment for learning to guide instruction, set high expectations for students, employed high-yield strategies that promoted the greatest student growth, integrated the use of technology, moderated student work, shared practices in job-embedded conversations and reflected on next steps.

Framework Schools

Nine elementary Framework schools and three secondary Framework schools took part in networking and in-school professional learning led by the Principal with support from a Consultant or Co-ordinator. Professional learning and classroom implementation focused on assessment for learning strategies, higher-order thinking, differentiated instruction and the components of a comprehensive literacy program. Framework schools engaged in the School Self-Assessment process. A team consisting of the Framework Superintendent, School Superintendent, Principal of Program, School Principal and Consultant/ Co-ordinator provided feedback in the fall and spring.

Demonstration Teachers

Teachers had an opportunity to learn from each other, one of the most effective ways of influencing student learning. Teachers visited Junior and Intermediate demonstration classrooms to observe literacy, assessment for learning and differentiated instruction strategies. Visiting teachers spent time planning strategies for their own classes with the demonstration teachers.

Elementary Networks

Elementary network schools participated in three capacity building network sessions throughout the year. Teachers engaged in professional learning with a focus on assessment for learning strategies, higher-order thinking, differentiated instruction and strategies for closing achievement gaps identified by the school.

Elementary Framework Principal Learning Time

Framework Principals gathered to learn with and from each other based on the inquiry learning cycles. They discussed specific instructional strategies being used at their schools and shared their reflections on next steps from their school’s School Effectiveness Framework visit.

Mathematics Co-teaching

All Grade 1 to 6 teachers in elementary schools with a focus on mathematics participated in a co-teaching network. They focused on deepening teacher content knowledge in mathematics and effective implementation of teaching through problem solving.

In order to reach the 2012 target, Rainbow District School Board has implemented a number of additional strategies: Math Principal Learning Mental Math Strategy Principals in schools with a mathematics focus will meet to learn with and from each other through co-teaching and problem solving. They will discuss specific instructional strategies being used in their schools and will share their reflections to improve student achievement.

Gap Closing Mathematics Intervention Resource

All Grade 6 teachers will attend an after-school session for an overview of the Ministry of Education’s Grade 6 Gap Closing resource. Teachers will be able to implement this resource in their class.

Learning Cycles

Four eight-week learning cycles are continuing in elementary and secondary schools, building on the measures implemented in the past year to improve learning outcomes.

All teachers from Senior Kindergarten to Grade 6 will present mental math mini-lessons for five to ten minutes, three to five times a week. Through these lessons, students will develop a conceptual understanding of numbers and operations. Mental math activities provide opportunities for explicit instruction to support students in connecting symbolic and abstract thinking. They also develop efficiency with a range of strategies.

Network Principal Learning Time Principals will engage in dialogue about specific instructional leadership strategies to ensure implementation and monitoring of the effective instructional practices explored in the network sessions.


Early Learning Kindergarten Full Day Every Day Junior Kindergarten and the new Early Learning Program All Rainbow Schools offered full day every day Junior Kindergarten in 2010-2011.

Stand Up Against Bullying Day

Free the Children

Together for Japan

Spread the Net Campaign

Staff and students in Rainbow Schools wore pink on September 9, 2010, as Rainbow District School Board marked its third “Stand Up Against Bullying Day”. The day served to reaffirm the Board’s collective commitment to safe schools.

Staff and students in Rainbow Schools wore red and white on March 25, 2011 to mark the two-week anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan. Some schools collected donations, including Lockerby Composite School. A total of 20 students, teachers and parents from Lockerby returned home safely from Japan over the March break.

Approximately 450 students gathered on April 1, 2011 to hear a powerful motivational speaker from Free the Children. Former child soldier Michel Chikwanine inspired students to continue to make a difference on a global level.

Espanola High School was featured on the Rick Mercer Report on March 29, 2011 as the top secondary school in Canada in the Spread the Net Campaign. The school raised more than $13,000 for bednets to help protect children in Africa from malaria.

Students Leading Students Conference The 2011 Students Leading Students Conference presented by the Student Senate focused on perseverance and featured holocaust survivor Eva Olsson and gang expert Rick Osborne. The conference inspired students to be good role models in creating healthy school environments where all young people feel welcome and valued.


Parent Involvement Parents as Partners Workshop

Parents participated in an interactive workshop with motivational speaker Allan Johnson. Two sessions were presented - Espanola on October 13, 2010 and Sudbury on October 14, 2010. Parents received practical tools for creating success at home and at school.

Positive Parenting Seminars

Ensure success for all

Rainbow Schools hosted Positive Parenting Program (Triple P) seminars on the Power of Positive Parenting; Raising Confident, Competent Children; and Raising Resilient Children. The free seminars were presented in partnership with community organizations that support children. Childcare was available at each site compliments of local service providers.

Parent Involvement Committee

Parent Involvement Committee presentations included Early Learning, Nutrition Standards in Schools, the Positive Parenting Program and Community Use of Schools, the Accommodation Review process, Special Education, Assessment and Evaluation (Report Cards, Homework and EQAO) as well as Dual Credits, Specialist High Skills Major programs and the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program. The Annual General Meeting featured roundtable discussions on topics from fundraising to cyberbullying.

Parents Reaching Out Grants

Thirteen Rainbow Schools shared $11,200 in Parents Reaching Out Grants to support School Council initiatives to further engage parents/guardians.

www.FSLHomeworkToolbox.ca Rainbow District School Board, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, produced a dynamic new website of French as a Second Language (FSL) resources for parents and students across Ontario. The website was made possible through the financial support of the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage. The website - www.FSLHomeworkToolbox.ca - was officially launched on October 17, 2011.

Sports and Healthy Active Living Program Lasalle Secondary School developed a new program to maximize human potential in sport, fitness and academics. The Sport and Healthy Active Living Program, being offered to all students in the Lasalle Secondary School area, focuses on three strands – Elite Athlete Development, Healthy Active Living and Sports Administration. Student athletes are furthering their academic success by pursuing sport specific courses with a focus on fitness and healthy active living. The program was launched in September 2011.


Ensure success for all

Special Education Intensive Support Programs

Rainbow District School Board offered seven Intensive Support Programs at the elementary and secondary levels.

Life Skills

Students from Gatchell School continued to gain important life skills. Sudbury Developmental Services, the Sudbury Regional Hospital Children’s Treatment Centre and Rainbow District School Board formed a partnership to provide Simulated Healthy Independent Living Opportunities (SHILO) for students. Young people with developmental challenges were prepared for the transition to independent living as part of their regular school day. SHILO is offered to students in Life Skills Programs in Rainbow secondary schools.

Easing the Transition

To ease the transition for all students, secondary schools highlighted pathways for exceptional students in Grade 6, 7 and 8 during their annual Information Nights. Participants received information about the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma, a Certificate of Achievement or a Certificate of Accomplishment.

Assistive Technology Assistive technology goals continued to be implemented to ensure sufficient training for students and staff, increase student access to technology, partner with parents to support children and encourage a culture of acceptance that promotes a broader use of technology. For instance, iPad pilot projects were introduced in various elementary and secondary schools and interactive SMART boards were used system-wide.

Section Agreements

Rainbow District School Board had five section agreements with the Child and Family Centre for students who had behaviour, social and emotional challenges. Other agencies that provided services through unique agreements included North East Mental Health, the Children’s Treatment Centre and Northern Youth Services.

Cecil Facer Secondary School

Cecil Facer Secondary School, located in the Cecil Facer Youth Centre, offered educational programs for young persons in conflict with the law. The students thrived in the small class setting with emphasis on literacy, numeracy and life skills. The programs were complemented by apprenticeship, technical and vocational skills training as well as Co-operative Education and employment preparation. The Attendance Centre helped students make the transition into a regular secondary school. Cecil Facer Youth Centre celebrated its 40th anniversary on September 22, 2011.

Alternative Program Elementary

The Alternative Program Elementary gave students in Grades 6 to 8 an opportunity to develop the personal, interpersonal and academic skills that, in the past, have prevented them from succeeding in a regular school program.

Learning for All

In keeping with the philosophy of Learning for All, meeting the needs of all learners, Rainbow District School Board remained committed to universal accessibility through a variety of supports. All students had school and home access to assistive technology software such as Kurzweil 3000, Premier and Word Q. This software, as well as Dragon Naturally Speaking, was available on all special education computers.

First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education The First Nation Advisory Committee as well as youth leaders, families, communities and FNMI staff continued to be consulted in the development and delivery of programs and services for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students in Rainbow Schools.

Native Studies and Ojibwe Language Programs

Elders in Schools

Native Studies was offered in most secondary schools. Ojibwe Language was offered in twelve elementary schools and seven secondary schools, including the N’Swakamok Native Alternative School. Native Studies/Ojibwe teachers had an opportunity to network with other teachers from across the Board and the Northeast Region.

Elders Winnie Pitawanakwat and Stan Peltier visited many schools to deliver cultural workshops such as tipi teachings. They also offered drumming for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

FNMI Perspectives Reflected in Curriculum

Support Workers and FNMI Centres in Secondary Schools

Work began on embedding First Nation, Métis and Inuit perspectives into the Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 curriculum. Teachers participated in training to further develop culturally inclusive teaching strategies and practices. Big ideas in Social Studies were also developed that will incorporate key FNMI perspectives.

13

N’Swakamok Native Alternative School Successes

Eleven students achieved their secondary school diploma through the N’Swakamok Native Alternative School. Students benefited from flexible school hours, one-on-one or small group learning, tutoring, a strong support system within the N’Swakamok Friendship Centre as well as supportive partnerships within the local Aboriginal community.

Kindergarten Programs with an Aboriginal Focus The Aboriginal Oral Language Specialist, Sharla Peltier, worked in three schools (Cyril Varney Public School, Little Current Public School and Wembley Public School) along with Elders, families and communities to make Kindergarten classrooms more reflective of Aboriginal history, culture and traditions.

First Nation, Métis and Inuit Support Workers in all secondary schools fostered a welcoming environment for students and their families. At First Nation, Métis and Inuit Centres, students connected with students from similar backgrounds and students from different backgrounds.

Dual Credits for FNMI Students

Aboriginal secondary students participated in the dual credit Business and Native Social Work courses offered by Laurentian University, earning secondary school credits and university credits at the same time. These were the first dual credits offered for Aboriginal students at the university level in Ontario.

Youth Education Day

An Education Day was held at Tom Davies Square in conjunction with the Northern Aboriginal Festival. Hundreds of Grade 7 and 8 students met Aboriginal role models and explored local secondary and postsecondary programs and pathways. The Education Day included a focus on the importance of water in the Anishinaabe culture.

Aboriginal Youth Leadership Group Reduces the Impact of Poverty

Students from the Aboriginal Youth Leadership Group produced public service announcements to highlight the issue of poverty as a tool to engage other youth and start a dialogue about actions that can be taken to reduce poverty and its effects.

Re-engaging Students

Pathways to Bilingual Success

Barrydowne College

Close to 200 French Immersion students in Grades 10 to 12 participated in the Pathways to Bilingual Success Conference on October 28, 2010. Students and graduates shared their personal experiences on how bilingualism has enhanced their lives and careers.

Dual Credits, Co-op, OYAP and SHSM

Parents and students were invited to learn more about Dual Credits, Co-operative Education, the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) and Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) in Rainbow Schools.

Dual Credit Programs

Students continued to earn credits that could be applied towards both their secondary school diploma and their postsecondary diploma, degree or apprenticeship certification.

Specialist High Skills Major Programs

Rainbow District School Board offered Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs in seven sectors: Arts and Culture, Business, Energy, Environment, Health and Wellness, Manufacturing, and Mining. Transportation, and Construction were introduced in the fall of 2011.

Co-operative Education

The Co-operative Education Program integrated classroom theory with practical experience. Students divided their time between the school and the workplace, spending at least half the day with an employer. Co-op continued to offer continuous intake.

Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program

Senior students had an opportunity to begin a career in a skilled trade while attending high school. In 2010-2011, OYAP began offering co-op placements in Early Childhood Education within Rainbow Schools.

Trades Training Trailers

Cambrian College’s mobile trades training trailers toured five Rainbow secondary schools, bringing hands-on learning to students in Grades 7 to 12. The trailers are equipped for instruction in a variety of skilled trades, such as welding, heavy equipment, truck and coach, machining, electrical and millwright.

Transition Evening

Grade 7 and 8 students and parents/guardians attended Making the Transition: Finding Your Way from 8 to 9 on November 16, 2010. The information session focused on the changes, challenges and choices students face as they enter high school.

Work began on the creation of Barrydowne College, an alternative school for young adults ages 16 to 20 at Cambrian College. Students who are not registered in a secondary school can obtain credits towards their secondary school diploma in a non-traditional environment with small class sizes and individualized instruction. Students have flexible schedules and many ways to earn credits - Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR); eLearning; Independent Learning Centre courses; Co-operative Education, including the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP); and dual credit courses. Barrydowne College was officially opened on October 21, 2011. In 2010-2011, Student Success staff phoned students who had left school to invite them to come back. Over 250 students re-engaged, earning hundreds of credits towards their secondary school diploma.

ReconnectPlus – Skills Link Initiative Eleven students were supported in their studies through the ReconnectPlus – Skills Link Initiative. Students earned an hourly wage during their co-op placement with participating employers. The wage was funded by Service Canada.

Supervised Alternative Learning

Supervised Alternative Learning (SAL) enabled students ages 14 to 17 to earn credits in a variety of alternative ways, including courses, training, certifications, volunteer work and/or other work. Students developed job search skills, essential skills, work habits and life skills.

Restart

Students who were suspended for six or more days or expelled were supported in both academic and non-academic areas through the Restart program, offered in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin.

2011-2012 Budget Ensure efficient resource management Rainbow District School Board approved a budget of approximately $169.5 million for the 2011-2012 school year at the regular Board meeting on June 20, 2011. In order to balance the budget, the Board reduced its expenditures by close to $2 million. Like most school boards in Ontario, Rainbow District School Board continues to experience declining enrolment. Enrolment in Rainbow Schools has dropped by 2,400 students or 15 per cent since 2002-2003 due to the decrease in school age children in the community. In June 2011, enrolment was projected to total 14,258 students in 2011-2012, a loss of 252. Declining enrolment means less revenue and this continues to have a significant impact on the Board’s ability to sustain programs and services at current levels. As a result, expenditures were realigned to meet revenue.

15

The Board achieved a balanced budget while continuing to invest in programs for students, such as full day, every day Junior Kindergarten. The Board also remains committed to the renewal of technology in the classroom and the revitalization of Rainbow Schools, providing the best programs possible in quality school facilities. Provincial funding for 2011-2012 has increased by approximately 3.5 per cent. The Province has allocated $1.2 million for Phase 2 of the new Early Learning Program, which will be fully implemented by 2014-2015. The Province has also increased funding for school renewal for a total investment of $4.8 million. Provincial support declined in a number of areas. Rainbow District School Board will lose $286,000 more to operate its schools in 2011-2012. (Funding for school operations was reduced by $187,000 in the 2010-2011 school year.) The Province has also reduced funding for board administration, classroom computers and staff development. A total of 78 per cent of the budget or $133 million has been allocated to salaries and benefits. Eight per cent of the budget will go towards supplies and services, nine per cent to fees and contracts, and three per cent to capital and replacement projects in the 2011-2012 school year. As we look ahead, we will continue to welcome as many students as possible into Rainbow Schools. More students means more revenue. Thank you for working together to ensure that Rainbow Schools remain vibrant for years to come.

A number of factors were considered as part of the review process, including the range of program offerings for students, the learning environment at the school, and the proximity of the school to students. Other factors, such as enrolment, operating costs, and capital needs, were also considered, within the following guiding principles - to ensure that all students continue to have access to the best programming possible in quality school facilities, to reduce surplus space, and to ensure the sustainability of existing programs and services for all students of the Board.

Independent Facilitator’s Report

Independent facilitator Margaret Wilson completed a review of the Sudbury South Accommodation Review process. In her report, she concluded that Rainbow District School Board followed its accommodation review policy in Sudbury South. The Board will consider the findings and suggestions in the independent facilitator’s report before beginning any other accommodation reviews.

Funding for the new MacLeod Public School

The Province of Ontario provided $13.1 million for a new elementary school to replace MacLeod Public School. Construction will begin in 2012. The funding will support the building of a new green school on the MacLeod Public School site. The sustainable design will foster environmental awareness within the school and community, create a healthier environment for students and staff, and develop a culture of conservation while minimizing operating expenses.

Ensure efficient resource management

French Immersion Program Review

At the annual Accommodation Meeting on January 24, 2011, Rainbow District School Board trustees decided to review the Board’s French Immersion Program. The review included community consultation.

Renewal of Sudbury Secondary School

Construction of the new arts wing began in June 2010 and was complete by September 2011. The new arts wing has modern music rooms and studios for dance, drama, visual arts, photography and media arts. The arts wing also houses a new library, wood shops, auto shops and administration offices. This part of the building will be connected to the Sheridan Auditorium, which is being upgraded as part of the school renewal project. Demolition of the B and C wings, which run along Baker and College Streets, began in the fall of 2011.

Renewal of Princess Anne Public School

The renewal of Princess Anne Public School began in May 2010 and was complete by September 2011. The school was upgraded with a displacement ventilation system as well as new energy efficient washrooms, boilers and lighting.

New Student Information System

In June 2011, Rainbow District School Board signed an agreement with SRB Education Solutions Inc. to license the Trillium Student Information Suite to manage student data. Elementary schools began migrating to the new system in the 2011-2012 school year. Secondary schools will start using Trillium in September 2012. Rainbow District School Board’s current student information system was being discontinued. This prompted the Board to carry out a comprehensive review of options. Trillium was selected following an extensive product evaluation with valuable input from stakeholders.

Purchasing Policy and Procedures

The Board aligned its Purchasing Policy and Procedures with the Broader Public Sector Procurement Directive, ensuring that publicly funded goods and services continue to be acquired through a process that is open, fair and transparent.

In keeping with Ontario’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy, Rainbow District School Board began implementing its Equity and Inclusive Education Policy and Procedure as well as its Religious/Spiritual Accommodation Policy and Procedure, which are available on the Board website – rainbowschools.ca. The Board established an Equity and Inclusive Education Standing Committee with representation from trustees, staff and federations. The Committee met four times throughout the year. The Committee developed a comprehensive equity and inclusive education survey. Board employees completed the survey on September 30, 2011. The Committee also created an equity calendar highlighting important events for all staff, with specific resources for teachers. An equity staff representative was selected at each school.

Equity and Inclusion Strategies

Steps have been taken to embed the principles of equity and inclusion in all aspects of school/Board operations and monitor progress.

21

Equity has been highlighted in Strategic Directions 2011-2015 under Ensure Succession Planning as follows – ensure that all students and staff work in learning environments that are safe and equitable while valuing student voice and develop equity standards to deepen understanding of diversity among students, staff and the community. Each school will include equity strategies in their school improvement plans. In addition, equity was included in the School Effectiveness Framework: School Self-Assessment process. Superintendents reviewed school improvement plans with Principals during fall school visits.

Reaching Out to School and Community

In March 2011, parents/guardians and community members were invited to a special evening presentation on Building Inclusive Schools and Communities with Christopher D’Souza, a passionate advocate for the eradication of discrimination. D’Souza illustrated his message with stories from his own experiences with racism and dealing with stereotypes. He challenged the audience to look at situations that are unfair and determine what they could do to make a difference and bring about change. Students in Rainbow secondary schools gathered at Lasalle Secondary School in May 2011 to take part in a Gay Straight Alliance Symposium featuring keynote speaker Jeremy Dias. Dias talked about his experience of racism and homophobia growing up in Northern Ontario. Gay Straight Alliances have been established in a number of Rainbow secondary schools. They are designed to support students who may identify as being gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, two-spirited or questioning, and students who may have friends, parents or other family members from these communities.

Talent Development Learning Leadership

School improvement plans reflected Board priorities, including student learning and achievement, instructional leadership, assessment and evaluation, and curriculum and instructional strategies. In 2010-2011, the plans focused on literacy, numeracy, pathways and community, culture and caring.

Institute for Education Leadership

Rainbow District School Board tapped into the Institute for Education Leadership online resources to further develop leadership and improve student achievement in Rainbow Schools.

Ontario Leadership Framework

The Ontario Leadership Framework provided the foundation for the Future Leaders Program, the Principal/ Vice-Principal Eligibility Process, the New Principal/ Vice-Principal Mentorship Program and the Principal/ Vice-Principal Performance Appraisal.

Principal/Vice-Principal Eligibility Process

Teachers and Vice-Principals interested in leadership positions were invited to apply for the Eligibility Process, which included an application package, two site visits and an interview.

Principal/Vice-Principal Performance Appraisal

The Principal/Vice-Principal performance appraisal process served as an important tool to foster growth by developing, supporting, and sustaining leadership of the highest quality.

New Principals and Vice-Principals Mentorship Program

As part of the Just in Time Program, 12 new Principals and Vice-Principals in their first and second years of administration were paired with experienced administrators in Rainbow Schools who served as mentors. Mentors and mentees participated in monthly professional learning on a number of topics related to the instructional and operational aspects of their leadership and management roles.

Future Leaders

In 2010-2011, aspiring leaders participated in the second year of the two-year Future Leaders Program in order to gain an understanding of leadership and management skills. Topics included emotional intelligence, leadership, communications and change management.

New Employee Orientation Program

All new employees participated in an orientation session. Topics included organization roles and responsibilities, professional conduct, the child abuse reporting protocol, equity and accessibility, safe schools, email and use of the Internet, workplace safety as well as respectful working and learning environments.

New Teacher Induction Program

A total of 27 permanent new teachers and 33 occasional teachers participated in the Rainbow District School Board’s New Teacher Induction Program in 2010-2011. Created to help new teachers make a successful transition into the profession, the program paired new teachers with experienced teachers as mentors throughout the year. In addition to mentoring, the Teacher Induction Program included a series of workshops on topics such as effective planning, classroom management and organization.

Professional Learning for Experienced Principals and Vice-Principals

Monthly meetings served as a forum to share best practices in sound learning leadership and efficient school management. Emphasis was placed on outcomes for boys, students who are First Nation, Métis and Inuit, students with identified learning disabilities, and education for sustainable development. Professional learning through networking opportunities for Principals and Vice-Principals continued with the Ontario Principal Council initiative Leading Student Achievement: Our Principal Purpose. School administrators focus on assessment for learning strategies during teaching learning critical pathways, set high expectations for students, guide instruction, establish high-yield strategies, moderate student work, facilitate job-embedded professional learning conversations and reflect on next steps.
