Priority 2

Learning and working environments

Provide welcoming, high quality learning and working environments.

Goal One

A focus on well-being and student citizenship

Outcome: Our learning and working environments are welcoming, inclusive, safe and healthy.

Why is it important?

To help students become active members of local and global communities, the District supports their growth and development academically, socially and emotionally. To do this, we aim to provide classroom and school environments that give students a sense of safety and acceptance. This allows students to focus on preparing for their futures in post-secondary studies or the world of work, and helps them gain a strong sense of citizenship and social responsibility.
