Meetings

Committee of the Whole Board Meeting

Monday, November 18, 2019 – Meeting Agenda Package

Public Board Meeting

Monday, November 25, 2019 — Meeting Agenda Package

Highlights

Pastoral Plan Update

On February 11, 2019, at St. Anthony Daniel Parish, we launched Called to Belong, year one of our new three-year Pastoral Plan. The celebration featured students, parents, clergy and staff from across our system. The celebration highlighted images of Belonging from all our school communities, along with insights into how “All are One in Christ Jesus” can be lived out in our homes, schools and parishes. A Called to Belong video was shared system wide and used to animate discussions about our Pastoral Year.

Highlights of Called to Belong activities include the following:

  • Pastoral Plan banners placed in the entranceways of all WCDSB schools
  • Called to Belong mosaic artefacts designed by schools to represent the membership of each person in their school communities
  • Each school assigned a “prayer buddy” school to strengthen the bonds of community
  • Three “Theology on Tap” events at the Edelweiss Tavern to explore and celebrate the theme of Called to Belong
  • Overnight Staff Retreat at Mount Mary facilitated by Fr. Joseph de Viveiros entitled, “Praying with the Eucharist to help Deepen our Sense of Belonging”
  • Safe Spaces Retreats for students who identify as LGBTQ
  • Virtual Tour of Christ the King Cathedral that was featured in The Catholic Register and during Catholic Education Week by Bishop Crosby
  • Mount Mary Retreats for Grade 8 students have incorporated the theme of “Belonging”
  • Family of School Pastoral Team workshop/meetings to support the ongoing work of animating our pastoral year led by the Religion and Family Life Consultant

On December 6, 2019 we will celebrate Spiritual Development Day, again in a Family of Schools model, with Eucharist and activities that highlight the warm spirit of hospitality and welcome that characterizes the WCDSB community. Then, following the Advent season, we will launch Year 2 of our Pastoral Plan: Gathered to Become.

The full report is available on pages 12-15 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP)

The Teacher Learning and Leadership Program (TLLP) is an annual project-based professional learning opportunity for experienced classroom teachers. Through the TLLP, the Ministry of Education has, for the past decade, supported hundreds of teacher-led projects across the province. WCDSB has benefitted greatly from these grants, with truly innovative work resulting, so it was with regret that we learned there is not support provincially for any projects for the current year.

The program funds proposals from classroom teachers who seek a peer leadership role in curriculum, instructional practice or supporting other teachers. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for teachers to engage in advanced professional learning and to share their learning with others.

Goals of the program are to:

  • create and support opportunities for teacher professional learning.
  • foster teacher leadership.
  • facilitate the sharing of exemplary practice with others for the broader benefit of Ontario’s students.

On November 18, 2019 Board staff provided the Board of Trustees with an overview of the 2018-19 projects. The report is available on pages 8-11 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

English as a Second Language Update

Since its inception, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board has celebrated the contributions of its English Language Learners (ELLs) and worked to meet their needs in a variety of settings. English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers continue to work in all our schools to support staff, students, and families in developing language skills necessary for success in a changing society.

English Literacy Development (ELD) programs are for students whose first language is other than English or is a variety of English significantly different from that used for instruction in Ontario schools. Students in these programs are most often from countries in which their access to education has been limited, and they have had limited opportunities to develop language and literacy skills in any language.

English as a Second Language (ESL) programs are for students whose first language is other than English or is a variety of English significantly different from that used for instruction in Ontario schools. Students in these programs have had educational opportunities to develop age-appropriate first-language literacy skills.

There are more than 600 elementary students in the WCDSB who are in their first two years in Canada and more than 1,000 students in their first four years in Canada.

The full update is available on pages 43-46 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Autism Support Plan Update

Within the Waterloo Catholic District School Board, there are many support services available for students with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Collaboratively, the classroom teacher works alongside the Special Education teacher to develop and provide appropriate programming for students diagnosed with ASD. Other school level support staff involved may include an Educational Assistant and/or Child and Youth Care Worker. Additional supports are also available for students who:

  • are arriving from another school or school board.
  • are transitioning from a preschool setting.
  • are newly diagnosed.
  • have updated assessment results that call for a review of strategies.
  • require Individual Education Plan (IEP) revisions.
  • require the development of an IEP (e.g., students who may be experiencing challenges with transitions).

In October 2019, all Special Education teachers, Principals and classroom teachers were presented information on the topic of Universal Supports for Executive Functioning. Classroom teachers were provided with practical tools to guide them in determining and developing universal supports to promote student achievement and well-being. WCDSB has obtained a supplementary grant to support students with ASD. The Board has hired an additional Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) to develop and implement lunch-time social skills development programs in all five secondary schools (St. David, Resurrection, Monsignor Doyle, St. Mary’s, and St. Benedict). The programs will begin in January 2020.
