Palliser's Effective School Model

Palliser's Effectiveness Model

Palliser Regional Schools has adopted a graphic representation of our school system and schools, showing the deep alignment between what is expected of students, teachers, principals and superintendent within the vision and framework created by our Board of Trustees.

The graphic incorporates the language of Inspiring Education, the provincial Ministerial Order on Student Learning and the Teaching Quality Standard, the professional expectations of teachers. It incorporates Effective Schools research which identifies characteristics of effective schools. That research is also ingrained in Palliser's school review process. It reflects key areas of responsibility as outlined in Board Policy 12, Role of the Superintendent/CEO. The outermost ring is the Board of Trustees, an elected body that establishes the guiding vision and policies for the division, and maintains accountability processes.

By bringing key documents, values and expectations for various parties together, we see how intertwined our goals and objectives are, as all support our students and their learning and development.

When working toward meeting learning outcomes, logistics play an important role. Once again Alison’s background in technology based education shows her mastery of the technical skills needed to help students achieve their goals. While working on the leadership conference alongside Alison, it was no challenge to understand what my role was or how I was to undertake my next responsibility. With detailed emails, organized Google Hangout sessions, scheduled meetings, and clear deadlines for deliverables, each and every student was equipped with the resources to ensure they could accomplish the work the needed.

Andrew, 12
