Tomahawk School's Development Plan is an integral component of our school accountability and assurance. This plan is an extension of the Parkland School Division Education Plan, which sets out educational priorities and assurance elements within the domains of education, while outlining the Division's Vision, Mission, Values, Ultimate Goal and Priorities. A strong plan implements strategies to maintain or improve student learning and achievement - while monitoring and adjusting as needed - and to help the school and division in making evidence-based decisions.
Baseline Report & Development Plan
For the 2020-2021 school year, every Parkland School Division school has chosen one primary assurance element from the Division Education Plan as their area of focus, and two secondary elements as their supplementary areas of interest. With these elements in mind, the school consults with staff and stakeholders to determine where their practices sit at present and outline this information in a Baseline Report.
After establishing this baseline, the school then draws up a Development Plan with strategies to follow for the remainder of the school year, with the goal of improving their practices and achieving their desired state - one that aligns with the Division's Mission, Vision and Values.
Element of Focus - Characteristics For Success
For the 2020-2021 school year, Tomahawk School has chosen Characteristics For Success as its element of focus, with Student Achievement and Collaboration as its supplementary elements of interest. With these elements in mind, Tomahawk has outlined the school's Baseline Report and Development Plan.
As a blueprint for success, this plan endeavors to create strategies with clear outcomes that pave the way to Student Success and Well-Being.
By participating in Alberta Education’s Assurance Model, our school and our stakeholders are actively engaged in the development of our own local priorities and plans. Our development plan allows us to remain simultaneously forward-thinking and responsive to stakeholder concerns.
As Tomahawk School is committed to growth and learning, our developmental planning is a process without beginning or end. By crafting clearly visible elements and effective strategies in our development planning process, we actively contribute to creating a transformative and transparent school division.
