Learning Goal #1
To improve student performance in the area of basic numerical computation for all students, including Aboriginal students, by 10%.
Rationale — Shuswap teachers have agreed upon the importance of improving basic numerical computations for students. Data has been collected each year since 2015 in January and June. 2018 data will be updated summer of 2018.
Learning Goal #2
To improve the reading skills of our grade 6/7 English and French students, including our Aboriginal students, who are not meeting expectations by 10% through the implementation of a comprehensive plan. This plan includes intensive literacy intervention teaching by a trained literacy intervention teacher.
Rationale — Shuswap teaching staff agreed that intervention at the grade 6/7 level for students who are not reading is manageable considering our large population.
Learning Goal #3
To investigate reasons behind absenteeism. Does student wellness and mental health impact this?
Rationale — June 2018 data showed that we had 82 students who had missed a total of 25 or more days during the 2017-2018 school year. Teachers and administration would like to see a significant decrease in student absences in order to improve student success.
