WCDSB Board Meeting Bulletin — March, 2021

Meetings

Committee of the Whole Board Meeting

Monday, March 8, 2021 – Meeting Agenda Package

Public Board Meeting

Monday, March 22, 2021 — Meeting Agenda Package

Highlights

Adult Education Update

For many adult students, the ability to balance work, school and life responsibilities is often a driving force for the outcome of their academic success. Variability of work, increased need for digital resources, sporadic childcare, mental and physical well-being, and irregular access to community supports were intensified this past year and we are especially proud of everyone’s resiliency and success.

Despite the challenges of the past year, we forged ahead with many recommendations, adjusting our priorities along the way to achieve numerous successes across all programs.

The report presented to the Board of Trustees on March 8th describes important milestones and successes in the following key areas:

  • St. Francis (Kitchener) Campus Renovations Completed in December 2020
  • Kitchener Main Campus Renovations Have Begun (Year 1 of 5)
  • Revisioning ‘Technology in Classroom’ to Support Student Achievement
  • Nurturing our Catholic Community
  • Transition of Leadership
  • Professional Development to Build Capacity
  • Student Achievement and a 4-week Graduation
    • PSW
    • Hairstyling / Barber and Culinary
    • Credit Courses
    • Literacy and Numeracy (Gr. 7-10)
    • ESL & LINC
    • Core Essentials (LBS)

The report is available beginning on page 9 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Assessment & Evaluation Update

All assessment should lead to hope and an understanding that education is about learning. Educators design and implement rich learning tasks which respect the uniqueness and diversity of the individual learner. This leads to authentic assessment and evaluation as well as the use of accurate reporting strategies. Educators support students in meeting the learning expectations through a variety of assessment opportunities with the appropriate level of challenge, thereby helping students to demonstrate their level of achievement.

In March 2020, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, WCDSB responded by developing an initial Framework for Remote Educator-Led Learning to support educators through three distinct phases of the initial closure and online reopening. It outlined the key goals and priorities for each phase and included subject specific resources and supports as well as the key resource Recommended Online Assessment Tools FOR/AS Learning. This was a period of rapid change and response that pushed us to communicate clearly and create many new supports for educators as they shifted their assessment and evaluation focus to new ways of collecting evidence to support the triangulation of data.

The report presented to the Board of Trustees on March 8th provides important information in the following key areas:

  • Kindergarten Highlights Related to Assessment and Evaluation
  • Literacy Highlights Related to Assessment and Evaluation
  • Numeracy Highlights Related to Assessment and Evaluation
  • Adapted Secondary and Fully Remote Including St. Isidore and Full System (Jan/Feb)
  • Standardized Testing
  • Leveraging Digital to Triangulate Data

Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting practices at the WCDSB continue to rest at the core of all we do to ensure student achievement and well-being. These practices call educators to continually seek ways to learn more about their students’ needs and respond creatively and effectively. This year has provided more than a few challenges and the WCDSB has responded with resources and professional development opportunities that reflect innovation and a consistent focus on our students.

The full report is available beginning on page 15 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Student Success Update

While the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced challenges to overall student success, achievement, and wellbeing, at Waterloo Catholic District School Board we have been able to adapt, pivot, and continue to move our student success and experiential learning initiatives forward despite the following challenges:

  • Reduced overall coop placements due to pandemic protocols
  • Implementation of new student information system (SIS) under complex circumstances that has temporarily reduced our ability to retrieve data, therefore inhibiting responsive, evidence-based decision making
  • Temporary re-assignment of student success consultants due to teacher shortage
  • Re-assignment of student success sections to support Community Active Living full day programing

Student success initiatives and programs in the Waterloo Catholic District School Board broaden and deepen students’ experiential learning opportunities as supported by the Ministry of Education. Some examples include:

  • Specialist High Skills Major programs that bundle 8-10 courses allowing students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while completing their high school diploma.
  • A cooperative education program that combines classroom and workplace learning. Students can earn two co-op credits towards their compulsory diploma requirements, with no limit on earning optional co-op credits.
  • Dual credit programs where students have more opportunities to earn credits that count towards both their high school diploma and a college diploma or apprenticeship certification.

On March 22, 2021, the Board of Trustees received a comprehensive report on the WCDSB’s Student Success Plan. Key sections of the report include:

  • Transitions (Grade 8-9)
  • Pathways
  • Student Success Consultants Intermediate (SSCI)
  • Experiential Learning
  • Literacy & Numeracy
  • Graduation Rates
  • Re-engagement Strategy

The full report is available beginning on page 27 via this link: Meeting Agenda Package

Update on WCDSB COVID Education Delivery Plan

At the current time, the schools of Waterloo Catholic continue to learn in our new pandemic reality. Our staff, students and parents have been introduced to a new way of experiencing learning and their schools, be that in our in-person learning environment or in the virtual environment of St. Isidore. COVID-19 has changed the landscape of a traditional school experience and the staff of our board have planned, prepared, and have successfully implemented this new reality. As we come through these last months of winter and start the journey into spring, we are also looking to next year and what the school year will look like next year.

Those involved in in person learning returned to their schools on February 8, 2021. As reported in November through January, our numbers remain relatively stable, with approximately 3,890 students learning virtually at St. Isidore and 20,004 students learning face to face.

transition

Thus, at this point, approximately 17% of our total student population has opted for the virtual learning environment. We have completed the online survey of our secondary parents in terms of their desire to switch modalities. 262 students wanted to move to virtual learning and 290 to in-person learning – so there was a net gain of 28 students to in-person learning. There were some adjustments that were needed in staffing at St. Isidore (which lost a few teaching positions), as well as in a few of our bricks and mortar schools, to ensure that class sizes remained safe and manageable. The final transition of the year took place on Monday, March 8th, 2021.

Targeted COVID-19 testing has also been initiated in the Region over the course of this month. There are three types of testing that have been part of the provincial protocol. This has included pop-up community sites for symptomatic individuals, which we are helping to publicize through school-based communication in the communities where the pop-up sites are located. As well – asymptomatic testing for staff is available at local pharmacies. Finally, each week 2-4 schools, representing approximately 5% of our schools (or 2% of our student population), have been identified for targeted asymptomatic testing. We are working in collaboration with Public Health and WRDSB.

We are also in the process of making a decision regarding whether we would offer a virtual school – St. Isidore – for our students next year.

We have initiated a two-stage survey process as we begin in earnest our planning for next year. During the week of March 15th-19th we asked families for an initial expression of interest for virtual learning for next year, and then we will give all families a chance to solidify their preference by June, when perhaps there will be more clarity as to how things are evolving regionally and provincially in terms of both COVID-19 numbers and vaccine roll-out.

We believe the best place for a child is in our bricks and mortar schools. We think this is best academically, but perhaps more importantly in terms of socialization and a young person’s social-emotional needs. We would hope that is the choice most parents make, but we also know that many parents may not be at that comfort level yet. We believe this is our best effort to be fair to parents who still don’t have the comfort to send children to in-person learning as we begin to enter a post-vaccine world – if not a post-pandemic world.
