Highlights

Adult Education Update

Based on adult education research reports spanning over the last decade, the social, economic and health and wellness impact of adults earning a high school diploma or participating in ‘second chance’ post-secondary education has proven to be extremely beneficial. Students experience improved opportunities in the labour market, with lower chances of unemployment and higher status jobs. Intrinsic benefits include increased confidence, motivation and improved awareness, overall social well-being and interest in lifelong learning.

For more than 30 years, and most dramatically in the last 10 years, our St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education programs have committed to supporting adults to earn secondary school credits toward an OSSD, develop literacy and basic skills, gain practical employment skills and improve English language proficiency. St. Louis adult programs directly connect with these social wellness and economic impacts, so no one gets left behind – a WCDSB strategic focus for the next 3 years.

The current Provincial Adult Education Strategy aims to find efficiencies and best practices among regional adult education providers. Indirectly, St. Louis has also been a support to children under 18 who have benefitted from additional literacy and numeracy programs, summer school credits, learning languages and early childhood development.

A comprehensive report presented to the Board of Trustees on Monday, April 8, 2019 covered the following key areas:

  • Secondary School Credits (SSC)
  • Core Essentials –Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS)
  • Personal Support Worker (PSW)
  • Hairstyling / Barbering
  • Culinary Arts
  • English Language Programs (LINC & ESL)
  • International Languages –Elementary (IL)
  • Literacy & Numeracy, Continuing Education
  • Childminding (Care for Newcomer Children – CNC) and Licensed Child Care

The full report is available on pages 7-14 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Safe and Accepting Schools

At the Waterloo Catholic District School Board, we believe that every student has a right to learn in a safe, caring and supportive environment. Our learning environments foster positive Christ-centered relationships that are at the heart of all our efforts to promote student achievement and well-being. The WCDSB vision for safe and accepting schools clearly aligns with the publication of Achieving Excellence: A Renewed Vision for Ontario Education, wherein the Ministry of Education made a commitment to every student in the province of Ontario. Regardless of ‘ancestry, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, physical and intellectual ability, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic status or other factors’, all students should be able to access the curriculum, feel safe at school, and have a sense of belonging.

In addition to this, the Ministry of Education also introduced Ontario’s Well-Being Strategy for Education: Discussion Document which has also served to guide our Safe and Caring Schools focus in WCDSB.

There are four key components at the foundation of Ontario’s well-being strategy:

  • Positive Mental Health
  • Safe and Accepting Schools
  • Healthy Schools
  • Equity and Inclusive Education

On Monday, April 8, 2019 the Board of Trustees received a detailed report on the Safe and Accepting Schools portion of the strategy.

One example of ongoing success in this key area is illustrated by the school board’s suspension and expulsion data.

Overall, the WCDSB is trending downwards in terms of the overall number of suspensions over time (1492 suspensions in 2012-2013 school year vs. 945 suspensions in the 2018/2019 school year). The recidivism rate for suspensions also continues to be on the decline in both elementary and secondary schools. And, finally, in secondary schools, we are observing 49% fewer suspensions over time.

In addition to suspension / expulsion data, the report also looked at:

  • Alternative Suspension Program
  • Board use of various data platforms and predictive models
  • Cannabis education
  • Umbrella Project
  • Board partnership with Community Justice Initiatives (CJI)

Long-Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP)

The purpose of the Long-Term Accommodation Plan (LTAP) is to provide an update on enrolment status, demographic trends as they relate to enrolment, and future accommodation initiatives including boundary changes, school closures, new schools, and additions/renovations.

The LTAP includes recommendations for:

  • Land acquisitions (purchase)
  • Land disposition (sale)
  • Capital projects (additions, new schools, major renewal projects)
  • Accommodation solutions (boundary changes, school closures, portables, partnership agreements)

All recommendations are subject to approval by the WCDSB Board of Trustees as per Board Policy IV010: Facilities/Accommodations – with the exception of specific renewal (major repair) projects.

The full LTAP is available on pages 25-142 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Information Technology Strategic Plan: 2019-2024

The 2019-2024 Information Technology Strategic Plan was presented to the Board of Trustees on April 29, 2019.

The plan is divided into the following key focus areas:

  • Community Engagement
  • Infrastructure
  • Pedagogy
  • Process Optimization
  • School Technology Refresh
  • Staff Development

The following chart offers a glimpse at the ambitious scope of work on tap for the duration of the plan.

The full plan is available on pages 22-73 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

WCDSB Announces Langs as 2019 Community Partner Award Recipient

Waterloo Region, ON – The students, staff and trustees of Waterloo Region’s Catholic Schools proudly congratulate Langs — 2019 recipient of the WCDSB Community Partner Award.

The award has been presented since 2001 at the WCDSB’s annual Appreciation Night, in recognition of outstanding contributions made to Waterloo Region’s Catholic Schools by an individual or agency serving the students, staff and greater community of Waterloo Region.

QuickFacts

>> Formerly known as Langs Farm Village Association, Langs was established as a community development project in 1978 by a group of citizens and service providers concerned about vandalism and the lack of accessible services in the community. Since then, Langs has grown to become a dynamic, respected multi-service organization that uses a community development approach to provide comprehensive health, social and recreational services that are responsive to the changing needs of the community.

>> The Vision of Langs (“Changed lives, healthy communities”) and the organization’s values (Integrity, Respect, Accountability, Collaboration, Innovation & Excellence) complement and in many ways mirror the WCDSB’s own Vision (“Heart of the Community – Success for Each; A place for All”) as well as the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations.

>> In 1978, Langs founders envisioned Langs as a place where partners worked together to bring health and social services under one roof. The HUB model evolved over several years beginning in 2011 when Langs moved into the HUB@1145, what is now known provincially as a ‘Community HUB’. Langs’ North Dumfries Community Health Centre Satellite Site is also a Community HUB, known as the HUB@2958.

Quotes

“We are honoured to be the recipient of the Community Partner Award from the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Our partnership with WCDSB has been instrumental to our success for the past 40 years. By working together, we have made a difference in the lives of thousands of students and families.”

~~ Bill Davidson, Executive Director, Langs
