Following an extensive consultation and community engagement process that took place over a two year period, CCRCE has recently unveiled a new vision, mission, and core values that guide the daily work of our staff. While reflecting these guiding statements, CCRCE works in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (EECD) to ensure that the needs of each child are well served through our programs and services. CCRCE’s guiding statements are very much aligned with the strategic direction of the province.
The 2018-2019 budget remains focused on key initiatives which will have a direct and positive impact on the priorities identified in the 2018-2019 Business Plan. It should be noted that while the Business Plan follows the fiscal year of April 2018 to March 2019, many priorities and initiatives transpire throughout the course of the instructional year from September 2018 to June 2019.
In addition to CCRCE’s vision, mission and values, planning for the 2018-2019 Business Plan reflects the following:
- The EECD Business Plan 2018-2019
- The EECD Five Year Strategic Plan 2015-2020
- The recommendations from the Council to Improve Classroom Conditions
- The recommendations from Raise the Bar: A Coherent and Responsive Education Administrative System for Nova Scotia report.
- The recommendations from Students First, the report of the Commission on Inclusive Education.
The achievement sections in the 2018 - 2019 Business Plan provide data and actions that evidence implementation of successful learning practices throughout our region. Our approach to school improvement continues to be based on building a culture of collaborative professionalism with practices to successfully support this culture, and will follow an updated improvement framework via the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s Student Success Planning process.
