School District 91 update

The school year was kicked off with a two-day professional-development event attended by approximately 115 staff from across the district.

Superintendent of Schools, Charlene Seguin, reported that the school year was kicked off with a two-day professional-development event attended by approximately 115 staff from across the district.

Each school in the district had teams that worked with Austin Buffum to explore how to develop systematic school-wide responses to further deepen student learning.

Seguin indicated that the overall response could be summed up by one teacher who responded that the “message aligns perfectly with where we are going as professionals” and by the comment of another teacher who indicated this was the most valuable workshop they had attended in many years.

Seguin thanked Rick Pooley, assistant superintendent of schools for his efforts in putting this event together.

The new school year also brought administrative changes to several schools in the district.  Seguin reported the district has eight principals and vice principals in new positions this year.  She went on to say “our schools are in good hands; we are very pleased.”

Manu Madhok, director of instruction, thanked Ray LeMoigne and the School District No. 91 Business Company for planning and carrying out two summer camps.

This summer 20 students from China visited the district and enjoyed exciting activities.

Madhok also reported the district is monitoring the enrolment numbers in each school.

While most schools are on track to meet their projections, we have noticed increased numbers in a few schools and this has allowed the district to hire more teachers than earlier anticipated, he said.
