As a leading public school division dedicated to the success and well-being of all students, Parkland School Division prepares, engages, and inspires our students to be their best in a quickly changing global community. We believe that Parkland School Division is a place where exploration, creativity and imagination make learning exciting, and where all learners aspire to reach their dreams.
This education plan is designed to ensure that we are accomplishing our Vision and Mission as a school division. Our mission, our enduring priorities and our objectives enable us to remain committed to a focus on success and well-being.
As Parkland School Division is committed to growth and learning, our educational planning is a process without beginning or end. By developing clear outcomes and effective strategies in our education planning process, we have emerged as a transformative school division, well-respected for inspired exploration and excellence in education.
As a blueprint for success, this plan sets a direction for Parkland School Division. It also ensures that all of our schools are on the same page as the Division. The school division and all our schools engage students, staff, parents and their local communities in creating strategies with clear outcomes that pave the way to student success and well-being.
Our Education Plan establishes strategic processes (enduring priorities) that are considered in the generation of strategies (forward-thinking actionable plans). These strategies enable us to demonstrate growth toward our intended outcomes.
By participating in Alberta Education’s Assurance Model, our stakeholders are actively engaged in the development of local priorities and plans. We believe combining local and provincial measures allows us to provide a more balanced and complete assessment of the progress we have made towards our intended outcomes. As we engage our stakeholders, our education plan ensures we remain simultaneously forward-thinking and responsive to stakeholder concerns. The confidence our stakeholders hold in our practices can be revealed through engagement processes. Because of this, Parkland School Division recognizes and appreciates the importance of stakeholder engagement.
Parkland School Division’s Education Plan fully aligns to the Alberta Education Business Plan 2018-2021.
