Welcome back to the 2017-2018 school year! The first of two Curriculum Implementation Days for the upcoming school year will be held on Tuesday, September 5. The second Curriculum Implementation Day is planned on Friday, April 13. These days are specifically dedicated to BC’s redesigned K-12 curriculum.
As previously shared, the following Curriculum Implementation Day sessions have been planned in Hazelton, Kitimat, Terrace and Stewart on Tuesday, September 5 … to view the program or “shape of the day” for these venues, please click on the links below:
Hazelton-Kitwanga K-12 Teachers – Hazelton Secondary School
Kitimat K-12 Teachers – Nechako Elementary School
Terrace-Thornhill K-9 – Skeena Middle School
Terrace-Thornhill Grades 10-12 Teachers – Caledonia Secondary School
Stewart K-12 Teachers – Bear Valley School
Should you have further questions or require additional information, please contact your School Principal for assistance.
A friendly reminder that all teaching staff are expected to be in attendance in one of the full-day sessions. Sign-in sheets will be on-site to document attendance. Individuals not present at a session will not be paid for the day.
Not unlike any other non-instructional day, part-time employees will be expected to attend the day at a rate consistent with that of their employment (if you are a .6 FTE employee, you are expected to attend for 60% of the day). Individuals are more than welcome to attend a greater portion of the day on a voluntary basis if they so desire. Teachers Teaching-on-Call are also welcome on a voluntary basis as desired.
CUPE members are welcome at the sessions, however, CUPE staff are responsible to their School Principal for activities of the day.
We also share the following link to the Student Learning Module package as pre-reading for the Computational Thinking presentations offered during the Kitimat and Hazelton/Kitwanga sessions:
In addition, we share a link to the School-Based Collaboration Form for completion by teaching staff attending the Kitimat and Hazelton/Kitwanga sessions for return to their School Principal at the session prior to the lunch break:
A special thanks is extended to the Curriculum Implementation Committee for their efforts and organization for this significant and important work for Coast Mountains’ learners.
We look forward to inspiring and engaging with you on September 5 as we begin a new school year!
Director of Instruction, School Support
