                                                Introduction

In accordance with the Education Reform Act of 1993, the Memorial School Council is
established each fall. A school council is a representative advisory group that collaborates
with the principal in planning and implementing a School Improvement Plan that is aligned
with the District Goals. As described in the legislation, the School Improvement Plan has the
following elements:

•An assessment of the impact of class size on student performance, student-to-teacher ratios, and ratios of students to
other supportive adult resources
•A schedule for reducing class size, if deemed necessary
•Professional development for school’s staff and the allocation of any professional development funds in the school budget
•Enhancement of parental involvement in the life of the school
•School safety and discipline
•Establishment of a school environment characterized by tolerance and respect for all groups
•Extra-curricular activities
•Means for meeting, within the regular education programs, the diverse learning needs of as many children as possible,
including children with special needs currently assigned to separate programs
•Any further subjects the principal, in consultation with the school council, shall consider appropriate

The spirit of the law calls for collaboration between the council and the principal. The
principal needs to create an environment of openness, collegiality and respect for all
participants.

                 School Improvement Plan


Purpose of the Memorial School Improvement Plan

The Memorial School Improvement Plan is designed to serve as a
blueprint for the actions and processes needed to increase student
performance. It helps guide resource allocation, staff development,
instructional content and practice, and assessment. It is not meant to be
inclusive of all activities at a school, but rather it focuses on one or more
areas in which the school should improve performance.

Memorial School Mission Statement

In a partnership with families and community, Memorial School
empowers our students to become active learners and to be socially
responsible in an ever-changing world.
