The highest priority for Red Deer Public Schools is the success of every child in school.
Our District Education Plan responds to our local priorities and aspirations as well as those of Alberta education. We have narrowed our focus to key priorities and actions following extensive consultation and involvement with our stakeholders. We continue to look at a wide range of data, research and trends to ensure our planning is focused on key priorities.
To achieve this, the district has identified three key priorities that guide our work. We believe these areas provide the greatest opportunity for the district and our schools to have a significant impact on student success.
- literacy will be a focus from prekindergarten to grade 12 and is essential in all subject areas
- equity ensures that every student is engaged in meaningful learning and the most enabling environment
- HIGH SCHOOL COMPLETION AND TRANSITIONS
- High school completion and transitions starts as students enter the school system. Students elementary, middle and high school experiences play a crucial role in ensuring high School completion and in making successful life transitions
There are strong links between these priority areas. These are not standalone priorities, each of these areas overlap in meeting the needs of all students.
