Summer Boost Program Registration Update

The WCDSB Summer Boost program is designed to provide an exciting educational program aimed at improving the numeracy and literacy skills of our students during the summer months. Teachers and students experience three fun-filled weeks of learning and growing together.

The school board has not yet received government confirmation of funding for our Summer Learning Programs, including the 2019 Summer Boost Program.

So, at this time we are unable to open Summer Boost registration.

We anticipate that we will have more news regarding funding closer to April 2019.  Any confirmation of programming and /or registration will be posted on the WCDSB website and communicated via Twitter and the board’s Newswire email information service.

Thank you for your interest in Summer Boost – and for your patience as we await word from the Ministry of Education.

New WCDSB Multi-Year Strategic Plan

The new 2018-2021 WCDSB Multi-Year Strategic Plan was presented to the Board of Trustees on Monday, January 14, 2019.

The work of developing this Strategic Plan commenced in the spring of 2018, under the direction of the Board of Trustees, at which time stakeholders were engaged in a survey that asked them to reflect both on the current MYSP and their vision for our priorities going forward. This plan has been positioned as an extension of the 2015-2018 plan and finds its roots in that work. The Strategic Priorities identified by the previous Board of Trustees have remained core to this document, but the two Strategic Directions for each priority and the corresponding goals represent new work and visioning. An Executive Summary of the plan is available by clicking HERE.

In the fall of 2018 the Senior Team worked with the above framework to develop the comprehensive new MYSP.  A significant debt is owed to the Senior Team who worked diligently to ensure that priorities and goals were responsive, and would propel the board forward.  Further consultation took place with stakeholders in the early fall to inform the refinement of that work and all administrators were given the opportunity for final feedback before the plan was finalized.

Our sincerest thanks to everyone who has had a contributing voice in the development of our new 2018-2021 Waterloo Catholic District School Board Multi-Year Strategic Plan:  Living in Faith.  We believe it will provide us the direction and the framework to guide our Board forward as one of the true leaders and innovators in Catholic Education in the world.

Loretta Notten, Director of Education                                       Bill Conway, Chair of the Board
