Belonging

Building Capacity with all Our Educational Partners.

Our Strategic Commitments:

Student Voice
Create, enhance, and promote opportunities for student leadership and engagement in school, board, parish, and community initiatives.

Parent Engagement
Provide the supports and tools needed to connect parents to their child’s school, involve them in the life of the school community, and engage them fully in their child’s education.

Community Engagement
Actively create and promote opportunities for community outreach and capacity building with all educational partners to improve student achievement and well-being.

Equity, Diversity, Multiculturalism, and Inclusion
Develop, implement, and monitor an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion strategy that supports an environment that models language and practices reflecting a Catholic world view.

Our 2014-2015 System Priorities for Belonging were:

  • Continue with full implementation of the board bullying prevention and intervention plan as an expression of our Catholic faith.

  • Enhance student engagement by continuing to develop forums to access Student Voice at a school, district, and community level.

  • Implement the Mental Health Strategy created through the board scan and resource mapping with all stakeholders.

  • Enhance the implementation and communication of opportunities for our newcomer students and families to ensure their success and well-being as we welcome them to our Catholic schools.

  • To promote and support parent involvement in their child’s education both within the school community and through home connections.
