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.

About Vulcan Community Health Care Mentorship Program: Students were mentored by doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, health care aides, lab technicians as well as dental assistants and dentists. Throughout the Mentorship Program, students completed a culminating activity that explored the fields they are interested in and what they may need to get there. Each project is as unique as the ladies who created it. The entire experience began with the students exploring what they wanted to gain knowledge about. They created their driving questions. Why did they want this? What could they learn from their mentor? Their projects continually evolved as they dove deeper and their curiosity created new driving questions.
