Foundations for Learning
Foundations for Learning is an initiative of
Chinook School Division that responds to
the Continuous Improvement Framework
outlined by the Provincial Government. It is
founded on the idea of improving schools
through the development of Professional
Learning Communities whose core
principals are 1) to ensure that students learn
through a 2) culture of collaboration; which
is 3) focused on results. During early
dismissal days, École Oman teachers are
working collaboratively in learning teams
toward a common goal of improving the
literacy skills of our students. Each of our
teams has a specific, measurable, attainable,
realistic, and timebound (SMART) Goal and
has developed an action plan towards
attaining that goal. In addition, Chinook’s
Balanced Literacy initiative and the
resources provided by the Division are
providing us with additional support to
ensure that our students receive the teaching
they need to succeed and allows them to
work at a level that is “just right” for them.
As a staff, we are looking forward to sharing
more about Balanced Literacy and learn
from you how we can support your child’s
literacy development at home.
