PROVINCIAL EDUCATION WEEK PARTNER AWARD - NOMINATED BY THE TCRSB

2014 EDUCATION WEEK THEME

Active Citizenship:  Get Involved, Take Action, Be the Difference
 
Tri-County Regional School Board Member Andrea Huskilson
 
In 2010, Andrea initiated a program for students from Tri-County region travel to Kenya building schools, working on water projects and learning about creating a sustainable economy. For the past three years she has worked engaging youth in this program and accompanying them to Africa to work with Free the Children and their Adopt-A-Village model.  
 
Andrea’s program focuses on teaching for a sustainable future at the core of where these issues are most critical, in countries where equal education is still not guaranteed. It teaches our youth that we need to help educate others in order for them to live to their full potential and also helps them to appreciate the level of education that they are blessed with here.
 
Because Andrea recognizes the link between appropriate nutrition and mental health, she was instrumental in piloting the free the Children’s We Scare Hunger Program.  She piloted the program in one school in 2012 where students opted to collect non-perishable food items while Trick or Treating instead of traditional treats for themselves.  As a result over 200 pounds of food items were collected and donated to local food banks.  Her work to create compassionate, caring and sustainable practices within our schools and communities is to be commended.
 
Andrea is incredibly passionate about the health and wellness of all students in the Tri-Counties.  She initiated the Healthy Active Living and Anti-Bullying committees for Tri-County and has taken a keen interest in the food programs that are offered in our schools through her active involvement in Health Promoting Schools and the Food and Nutrition Ad-Hoc Committee.  
 
Because of her activities, Andrea was the unanimous choice of Tri-County Regional School Board to be nominated for this Award.

We’ve Enhanced the Student-Parent Portal! 

 

Student achievement information is now presented with a greater emphasis on the individual assessments and course outcomes for the entire course.  An improved user experience is now in place for parents and students to view information related to assessments and outcomes.  Information on attendance, late work, missing work, and achievement are all available to encourage ongoing communication and the improvement of student achievement.
 
A User Guide is available for students and parents which outlines the functionality in the portal.  Videos are also available on the iNSchool website to demonstrate specific features within the portal.  Go to the iNSchool website to access this user guide and videos - http://inschool.ednet.ns.ca/portal.
 

 

Teachers record student information electronically in a program called “PowerTeacher Gradebook”.   Currently, teachers are at various stages of implementation using their Gradebook as they continue to learn all of its functionality.   As they are learning, you may notice differences in the level of usage of Gradebook between teachers.  This amount of usage will be reflected in the amount of information available in the Student-Parent Portal.  You may have a child whose teacher is making maximum use of the technology; but you may have another child whose teacher is continuing his/her learning experience with the new software.  It is important to be patient.  Teachers may continue to record student marks and other information on paper for some time.
 
Please contact your child’s school if you would like to set up a Parent Portal account.
