Board Meeting Highlights - October 13, 2016

2016-2017 Final Enrolment

The division FTE total is 1369 students as of September 30, 2016 (down 3 from September 30, 2015).  Our smaller schools have been enjoying an upswing in student numbers as the trend of families returning to the rural areas appears to be on the rise.

2015-2016 Achievement Test and Diploma Exam Results

The superintendent presented the 2015-2016 achievement test and diploma exam results.  PLRD continues to focus on improving results at both the standard of excellence and at the acceptable standard, and as such, our Division was higher than provincial average within each of these areas.  In addition, PLRD scored consistently higher than the rest of the province in Biology 30, Chemistry 30, English 30-1 and English 30-2, Math 30-2, Social Studies 30-1 and Social Studies 30-2.  At the grade 6 and 9 level, PLRD scored higher than the province in ELA 6, Math 6, Science 6, Social Studies 6, ELA 9, Math 9, Science 9 and Social Studies 9.  The Board of Trustees would like to congratulate the dedication and hard work of our teachers and students for these outstanding results.  Moving forward, our teachers will continue to transfer from a knowledge and comprehension level towards the higher order thinking skills that include application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation, as per Bloom's Taxonomy and mastery teaching and learning. 

November 3 Board Meeting - Canceled

Due to other commitments of administration, the Board of Trustees moved to cancel the November 3, 2016 Board meeting.  The next Board meeting will be held on November 24, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at central office.
