School Development Planning
Each year, with input from with internal and external stakeholders, the schools, the system and service units in the Calgary Board of Education prepare Development Plans. Each document sets out the actions a school will take to improve learner outcomes. School Development Plans can include specific actions by which they will work towards their instructional and achievement goals and specific measures they will use to measure their success in reaching their achievement goal. This plan is worked on collaboratively as a staff and is informed by and shared with the families of Glendale School through our newsletters, ongoing discussions with families and at school council meetings.

Over the last two months, staff have been working diligently through the School Development process as illustrated above.  This has included looking carefully at a range of 2015-2016 school-based student learning data (Provincial Achievement Test data, reading scores, report card data, Tell them from me Survey information, Accountability Surveys) and then identifying key gaps in our students’ learning and in our own instructional practices.  We are currently at the final stages of determing specific instructional and academic goals for our students based on our findings.

We sincerely look forward to sharing and discussing our School Development Plan and some of the data that has informed this work at our upcoming School Council meeting on November 21, 2016th (6:45 p.m.) in the school’s learning Commons.  All families are invited to attend and babysitting is available.
