FISA BC express sincere thanks to the Ministry of Education for supporting curriculum implementation in independent schools. We also extend special thanks to the member schools who have graciously agreed to serve as hosts for these events.
The Provincial Outreach is a series of professional learning events for independent school teachers and administrators held at ten locations throughout BC. This year’s focus is on utilizing critical and creative thinking to create classrooms and schools that are learning-centred. Aimed at educators working with high school and middle school students, but open to all who are interested, the sessions will help educators “turn over a new leaf” as they see how to incorporate research-based practices into the implementation of the new curriculum in the higher grades.
The Regional Tour is an opportunity for school administrators and board members to meet representatives from the Ministry of Education and FISA BC. These evening sessions, held from 7:00-9:00 p.m., will address regulatory and policy issues and include a questions and answer period.
