Transforming BC’s Graduation Requirements

The Director of Innovative Learning Services from SD 8 (Kootenay Lake), Andy Leathwood, led our teacher candidates in a discussion around the current and possible future graduation requirements for the province. Our students had an opportunity to provide feedback on a number of questions that will be returned to the Ministry of Education as part of an on-going dialogue about graduation and other educational issues.

Professional Learning with SD 10 (Arrow Lakes)

Special thanks to the Arrow Lakes School District for inviting us to join their entire district staff in beautiful Burton, B.C. for some late summer learning. Our teacher candidates were excited to be a part of the day with presenters Judy Halbert and Linda Kaser, leaders of the Networks of Inquiry and Innovations and the Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network in B.C. They found the day to be engaging and enlightening, providing them with lots to think about as they start their year of teacher education. As one candidate put it, the entire experience was “incredibly inspiring.” Thanks again to the Arrow Lakes School District.
