Midnapore School Development Plan
For the past few weeks, Midnapore School staff have been busy examining our school data in order to effectively inform our School Development Plan, for this school year.  After discussions at our last School Council meeting, including feedback from parents, I thought I would take some time to further explain our School Development planning process for those parents who were unable to make it to our meeting.
What is a School Development Plan? 
A school development plan is an action plan for a school outlining what students and teachers will do to improve student learning outcomes connected to the school results.  A school development plan has three main parts:
Theory of Action
Achievement
Instruction
How do we develop a School Development Plan?
Dig deeply as a staff into student data and other achievement results.
Identify an issue for whole-school focus.
Develop an action plan to influence student learning outcomes.
Share with school council for feedback.
How is the School Development Plan Used? 
The school development plan is the driver for closing the gap and informs aspects such as:
Strategies for student learning.
Professional development.
Requests to parent associations.
Offsite activities.
Residencies.
The school development plan aligns with:
The Programs of Study.
Personalized learning.
Other supports such as mental health.
As Midnapore School houses both a regular English program and a Mandarin bilingual program, literacy skills are of primary importance in both languages.  We know that students with solid reading, writing, listening, viewing and speaking skills have a base upon which to build academic achievement in all subject areas; including Social Studies, Science and Mathematics.
In examining our student data, Midnapore School staff have come to the conclusion  that if we focus on helping students develop content vocabulary across the core subject areas we will provide students with a greater depth of understanding of grade level concepts.  This includes an ability to read, interpret and solve mathematical problems.
Please watch for our School Development Plan to be posted to our website in the near future, along with all of the data in our School Results Report from the 2017-2018 school year.   I would welcome any feedback or questions you have regarding our action plan for this school year.
These reports will be posted on Our School page.
Solar Panels at Midnapore School
Midnapore School is adding electricity to the grid!  We are very proud to state that this week, Midnapore School along with Enmax Energy have connected 25 new solar panels to the electricity grid.  We hope to now be able to generate enough power to give back, rather than just consume.  We feel this is a great learning experience for our students and stewardship for our environment.  Thanks to all Midnapore School students, staff and parents who have contributed to this exciting addition to our school.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns about Midnapore School.  I would be happy to discuss them with you.
Shelly Pynoo Principal
