Raz Kids

​Greetings West Dover Families

​Our school council has agreed to pay for another year of subscription to Raz Kids.  Raz Kids is an on line reading resource that is used extensively at school.  It provides leveled reading materials for students.  

Parents are encouraged to access Raz Kids at home as a reading resource to read books online with your children.  To access Raz Kids - visit  Click on ​Kids Login.  Then enter your child's teacher's username (get this from your child's teacher).  Then have your child enter their username and password (get this from your child's teacher).

Our hope is that this resource can be used by parents for 10 minutes every evening to read with their child.

School Development Plan, School Improvement Results Report, and School Fees Report

​Greetings West Dover Families,

We have posted three important documents on our school website.  

The School Development Plan outlines the priorities in student learning for the 2021-22 school year.  This school year we will be working on improving achievement in the areas of reading skill acquisition, numerical operation skills, and increasing on task learning time in classrooms.

 The School Improvement Results Report describes student achievement indicators related to the 2020-21 school year and reports to the community on results from the Alberta Education Assurance Survey which describes indicators such as Education Quality, Safe and Caring Schools, and Curriculum.

The School Fees report outlines fees charged to parents for things such as field trips.

​Here are the links to each of these items:
