Our School Plan Progress 2020-2021

Improving Student Learning

The Abbotsford School District’s Strategic Plan reflects our public commitment to BC’s new curriculum by working together to continuously improve learning for each student.

School Goals

Under the Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, all Abbotsford School District schools are required to develop a long term plan to improve student achievement, one that maintains a balance on the intellectual, social and career development of students. Each year, each school develops an annual plan and sets individual goals to improve student achievement. 

Mt Lehman Elementary School Goals

Mt. Lehman's continuing success is based on it's high expectations on early literacy mastery and developing social skills supporting positive citizenship principles.  Face to face instruction with students due to  the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020 negatively impacted instructional delivery and student learning; while many adaptations were made, including improved online learning formats and communications with students, teachers and families, up to 30% more students failed to meet grade proficiency standards for reading and / or writing during 2020.  An improved Safety protocol for BC schools allowed students more face to face instructional contact with their teachers during the 2020-21 school year, and there was a noticeable improvement in student literacy competencies (reading and writing) through all grades to previous levels.

Intellectual

Our students will learn key academic skills - like reading, writing and math - to encompass the knowledge and processes associated with intellectual development. As learners and meaning-makers, students take subject-specific concepts and content and transform them into a new understanding.

Human & Social

Our students will study personal and human social skills and as they relate to students' identity in the world - both as individuals and as members of their community. We are learning that personal and human social skills encompass the abilities students needs to thrive as individuals, to understand and care about themselves and others, and to find and achieve their purposes in the world.

Careers

Our students will succeed in a much different future from the one we envisioned 10 or 15 years ago. It is our responsibility to prepare all children for success in whatever life path they choose, connecting learning opportunities with future career possibilities. We know that real-life experiences - like community involvement, gaining business knowledge, and hands-on-learning - build better students and life-long citizens.
