Comprehensive Learning Framework (CLf)
Prairie South School Division was created in 2006 from the amalgamation of seven legacy school divisions. In 2010, a variety of issues surfaced that indicated a need to re-evaluate our operations in light of education changes. School administrators and staffs expressed concern regarding the growing number of education initiatives, provincial mandates to report student learning and consequent responsibility to improve student achievement. As a result, the Central Administrative Council (CAC) and Administrators' Quad Chairs began to research options that would support our learning in how to handle this work. Discussions were held with Dr. Douglas Reeves and Dr. Connie Kamm from the Leadership and Learning Center who were then invited to submit a proposal. Dr. Connie Kamm met with the CAC one day in August and two days in December of 2010 to refine the proposal and to develop direction for the initiative.
A Design Team, formed in January 2011, was comprised of an array of fifty stakeholders including teachers, administrators, trustees, and members of School Community Councils and the Central Administrative Council. The Design Team met for eight days, between February and May 2011, to synthesize their understanding of system-wide change as represented within this Comprehensive Learning framework (CLf) document.
The purpose of the CLf is to build the capacity of Prairie South School Division as a learning organization for continuous improvement. It will serve as a constructive tool to ensure that outstanding teaching, learning, and leading are demonstrated, supported, and celebrated through:
• inclusion of both the Division-Wide Performance Indicators and the School Indicators that guide the division and school Learning Improvement Plans (LIPs)
• analysis of relevant assessment evidence and other pertinent information, with the ultimate goal of improving instruction as a direct connection to improved academic achievement for all students
• development and implementation of research-based, effective educational practices, and
• establishment of a communication plan among students, parents, staff, Board of Trustees and the community.
