St. John CES School Boundary Review

St. John CES is WCDSB’s fastest growing elementary school. It is one of the largest schools and has one of the smallest sites, at 2.9 acres. The school has a capacity of 502 pupil places and enrolment is currently at 641 students. Enrolment is projected to continue increasing and may reach 886 students by 2024.

A request for capital funding to support enrolment growth at this school has been submitted to the Ministry of Education, but as there is no guarantee our request will be approved and because enrolment continues to grow, planning for September 2020 and beyond is required.

As a result, on October 28, 2019 the Board of Trustees initiated a boundary review involving Holy Rosary CES, Our Lady of Lourdes CES, St. John CES, and St. Nicholas CES, with the purpose of reducing enrolment pressure at St. John.

The preferred option (shown below) focuses on balancing enrolment between all four schools. Specifically, it proposes to:

  • Move sub-areas D and G (110 students) from St. John to Holy Rosary;
  • Move sub-areas E and B (61 students) from St. John to Our Lady of Lourdes; and,
  • Move sub-areas X and Y (140 students) from Our Lady of Lourdes to St. Nicholas.

It is anticipated that the review will be completed no later than April 27, 2020.

Public Board Meeting

Monday, October 28, 2019 — Meeting Agenda Package

Highlights

Math Strategy Update 

On March 15, 2019, the Ministry of Education announced a new four-year math strategy to ensure students have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of math and how to apply them. This strategy will:

~ Improve student performance in math;

~ Help students solve everyday math problems;

~ Increase students’ employability into the jobs of tomorrow.

Additionally, the math strategy will be supported by strengthening math teaching and fostering learning environments that will lead to improved student performance for all students, including students with special education needs. In support of the math strategy, the goals of this funding are to:

~ Effectively prepare for the implementation of the math curriculum;

~ Increase the performance of students in targeted schools;

~ Continue to build educator math content knowledge and pedagogy on the fundamentals of math to ensure that students are prepared for success in the classroom and in their future;

~ Ensure that students, parents, teachers, as well as school and school board leaders have the supports, tools and resources they need to advance student learning and confidence in math;

~ Continue to respect parents and families and ensure that they are aware of what their children are learning in school.

WCDSB’s plan to provide math support for all elementary schools takes in a “tiered” approach:

  1. Ministry targeted support
  2. Board identified support
  3. Intermittent support
  4. Periphery support.

The tiers are categorized by number of coaching days and frequency of service as well as the nature of the support (coaching vs consulting).

EQAO / OSSLT Update

On September 25, 2019 the WCDSB released the Board’s 2018-19 Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) assessment results for reading, writing and mathematics in grades three, six, nine and ten. Grade nine students are only assessed in mathematics. Grade 10 students participate in the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT).

For the 4th consecutive year, WCDSB students met or exceeded the provincial average in Grade 3, 6 & 9 math. This includes standing 11% above the provincial average in Applied Level Math.

QuickFacts

  • The Grade 3 WCDSB to Ontario comparison shows WCDSB ahead of the province by +1% in reading (75%), +2% in writing (71%) and +4% in math (62%).
  • The Grade 6 WCDSB to Ontario comparison shows WCDSB reading and writing scores level with the province (at 81% and 82% respectively) — while math (49%) stands +1% above the provincial average.
  • The Grade 9 WCDSB to Ontario comparison shows WCDSB’s Applied Level Mathematics students ahead of the province by +11% (at 55%) — while the board’s Academic Level Mathematics students stand above the provincial average by 1% (85%)
  • The WCDSB to Ontario comparison of OSSLT results shows WCDSB students topped the provincial average by 2% — with 82% of students achieving success.

Well Being Plan

With the collaboration of several working committees: Safe Schools, Mental Health and Wellness, Heathy Schools, and Equity/Inclusion, the WCDSB has developed a three-year Well Being Strategy for all schools and staff within the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.

The Well-Being Strategy goals are aligned with our Pastoral Plan:

  1. Students and staff feel a sense of belonging and inclusion in their learning community. Pastoral Plan (Belonging).
  2. Students have equitable access to learning opportunities. Pastoral Plan (Becoming).
  3. Building a culture of well-being that supports success for all in the WCDSB community. Pastoral Plan (Building).

Attention to the prayer and spiritual life of staff and students are embedded in the strategies.

Each goal also identifies key performance indicators that will be used to monitor and evaluate the success of each school community in meeting the goals of overall wellbeing.

School Climate Survey results from MDI Survey administered this past Spring have been shared with all school administrators to help inform the specific strategic areas of focus for each school community and Wellbeing Plan templates have been shared with all school administrators to be used to complete their 2019-20 plans.

Important Labour Update from St. Louis Adult Learning & Continuing Education Centres

Dear St. Louis Students, Parents and Guardians and Community Partners:

Wednesday morning, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board received notice that a full Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) strike may commence on Monday October 7th, if an agreement is not reached this weekend.

If the strike proceeds, this will mean CUPE members will not report to work.  Our CUPE staff here at St. Louis Adult Learning and Continuing Education Centres are incredible Administrative Assistants who support all programs in our Kitchener Main campus office, Secondary School Credit and Guidance offices, ESL/LINC sites, Core Essentials, Culinary Arts, Hairstyling & PSW programs and our various satellite campuses.  They do extraordinary work to support all students to be successful and the work of all our teachers, instructors and managers.

As a follow-up to the October 2nd news of a possible CUPE strike, all Waterloo Catholic District School Board schools may be closed.  These schools mentioned would be all the Elementary & Secondary Schools in the Catholic school board – not the Public school board.

St. Louis Adult Learning and Continuing Education Centres are very proud to be part of the Waterloo Catholic District School Board.

All programs at all St. Louis locations will remain open in the event of a strike next week and classes will be running daytime, evening and Saturday as per our usual schedule.

But it will NOT be ‘business as usual’.

At this time there will be no new student registrations for:

  • Term 2 Secondary School Credit;
  • Correspondence; and
  • English Language classes (ESL and LINC programs).

Guests and partners will have their campus visits and services rescheduled until after labour disruptions are resolved.

St. Louis students who are also parents of children who attend our Catholic Elementary and Catholic Secondary Schools are advised to arrange alternate care for their children.

As labour negotiations continue, we ask everyone to please check the St. Louis website https://stlouis.wcdsb.ca/labour_updates/ over the weekend for updates. This will be your most important resource to get the most up to date information regarding St. Louis programming.

Alternatively, you can visit StLouisALC on Facebook or follow @StLouisWCDSB on Twitter.

For information regarding  possible school closures of Catholic Elementary & Catholic Secondary schools next week please visit the special Labour Updates web page at: www.wcdsb.ca/about-us/labour-updates/

We are all hopeful for a satisfactory resolution to the negotiations in the days ahead.

Quick Facts:

  • St. Louis supports approximately 3000 learners at one time (ages 6 months to over 70 years old), meeting the continuing education needs of over 12 000 students annually.
  • St. Louis is funded by various ministries: Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services; the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities; Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, Canada; and the Ministry of Education
