Learning Resource Policy -DRAFT

The School District is soliciting feedback on the draft Learning Resource Policy and supporting materials/ forms. Please see below a summary and timeline for approving the policy. Please email feedback to Aleksandra Zwierzchowska or you may reach her at 64-814-3703.

Summary:

The Ministry of Education transferred responsibility for the review and approval of Learning Resource Materials to local Boards of Education.  The proposed policy outlines the responsibility and the process for approving resources.  

Analysis and Impact:

The draft policy has been developed over a year and a half by K-12 Teacher Librarians and the Indigenous Mentor Teacher in the District.  The policy considers the direction from the Ministry, the requirement to have a list of the approved resources, and the need for the opportunity to challenge the use of the resources.  The development process also included consultation with the Aboriginal Education Department.

Implementation:

  1. Preliminary Review – June Committee of the Whole (complete)
  2. Feedback from Partner Groups / Teachers / public: June 5 – Sept 6, 2019 (pending)
  3. Further review and consideration of comments considered at September Committee of the Whole
  4. Further consultation as needed
  5. Final review October Committee of the Whole
  6. Approval October 2019
