The 2016-2020 Strategic Plan for Avon Maitland District School Board was set by the board of trustees after a year of extensive consultation. Engage, Inspire, Innovate…Always Learning became our mission as we considered the potential these concepts have in shaping a student’s education. There were established philosophies from prior years that we wanted to continue to work with: Equity, Character, and Stewardship, and these were included as principles within the plan.
At its core, a board of education’s main purpose is to educate students, and we desire to do this well. In order to do so, we determined two priorities. They are creating positive inclusive learning environments, and maximizing outcomes for students.
The most important part of any plan is the people. Our students, staff, families and communities all have roles to play in the plan. Each year we like to recognize exemplary individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty; those who strive for the best possible outcome for our students and ensure that they are always learning. Here are this year’s 14 recipients for the Always Learning Awards.
We also take time every year to recognize our employees who have achieved milestones in their careers in education, as well as those who will be stepping down from their years of service into a much needed retirement.
