Action Plan for Learning

JKE Action Plan for Learning – 2018 2019


What have we done so far, and will continue? 

Our common vision is “Success for all through learning and caring”.  Our Literacy Goal is aligned with the District Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, and we make our decisions and shape our process through this lens.  Our shared goal is to have all students reading at grade level, or meeting goals as outlined in their IEPs by the end of Grade 3. Embedded in our Literacy Goal is our Social Responsibility inquiry.  They are developed simultaneously in order to create successful readers and contributing members of society. Again, this is aligned with the District purpose to “Inspire all learners to reach their full potential and create a positive legacy for the future.”

What are we going to do next? 

·       We will continue to strive to meet students where they are and allow them to access learning at their level and with differentiated instruction and assessments as needed (ex. Word Works Daily, Guided Reading Groups, Literature Circles)

·       Due to different strengths and learning styles in students, we will work to provide them the opportunity to shine in different ways that will help them achieve success (ex. Choice in books they read and are assessed with, Daily 5 choice in learning activities)

·       Because learning and caring go hand in hand, we will provide students with opportunities to care and develop connections to their learning. (ex. Orange shirt day, Respect and Diversity day, reading stories, writing, reflecting on the meaning of their learning)

What is the school targeting?

·       Our target is by June 2021, to increase the number of students reading at grade level or their IEP/AIP goals to 95% by the time they transition out of the primary program (aligned with the District target)

 What is the school goal?

  • Our goal is for all students to be meeting expectations in Reading by the end of Grade 3 (aligned with District goal)
  • All students will continue to meet or exceed expectations in Reading beyond grade 3, or meet IEP/AIP Learning Goals.
  • All students will be meeting or exceeding expectations as per K-7 Social Responsibility Performance Standards.

The District’s core values of integrity, courage, community and excellence will guide James Kennedy’s Action Plan. Aligned with the District Mission to “Inspire all learners to reach their full potential and create a positive legacy for the future,” the Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement reminds us that we are here for “Nurturing each student; with the child at the center of our work,” which reinforces our common vision of “Success for all through learning and caring”
