Development Plan

Development Plan & Results Report

Woodhaven Middle 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.

Every Parkland School Division school has evaluated their progress from last year in a Development Plan Results Report, using internal data, ThoughtExchange survey results, and Assurance survey results.

The goal of the Development Plan is to outline the strategies the school will follow for the 2021-2022 school year, based on their Element(s) of Focus, with the goal of improving their practices and achieving their desired state - one that aligns with the Division's Mission, Vision and Values.

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.

Element of Focus - The Learning Community Promotes Care, Respect and Safety

Parkland School Division has a responsibility to ensure that each student enrolled in a school operated by the Board and each staff member employed by the Board is provided with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging. To this end, stakeholders gain trust and confidence when students report positively about their sense of safety and well-being. 

The Division affirms the rights of each staff member employed by the Division and each student enrolled in a school operated by the Division as provided for in the Alberta Human Rights Act and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Staff members and students will not be discriminated against as provided for in the Alberta Human Rights Act or the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 

The safety and well-being of students remains a significant priority as students attend to online learning tasks. School staff will be continuously required to review and evaluate their methods of delivery in terms of student safety and well-being. Similarly, school staff will continue to explore ways to develop our students’ ability to attend to healthy lifestyle choices and physical activity during extended periods of social distancing and isolation.
