SAC Information Sessions - April 24 at Clark's Harbour Elementary School







The classroom teacher positions were chosen by school board superintendents, who worked with board staff in selecting candidates. The superintendents submitted their selections to the government and the Nova Scotia Teachers Union on March 7.
The government’s appointees are a student, a parent, and a guidance counsellor. 
The council will have $20 million over two years to address issues in the classroom identified by teachers, including: 
  • data collection and reporting
  • assessment and evaluation
  • timing of administrative days relative to report card preparation
  • student attendance policy
  • technology and work processes, including PowerSchool and TIENET (Technology for Improving Education Network)
  • scope of practice for teachers
  • planning for student success
  • complex classrooms
  • class sizes at all grade levels
  • student discipline policy
Close to 800 teachers applied to the council. There will be opportunities through the work of the council for teachers to engage in the process and share their ideas.
The council’s first meeting will be held before March 21.

Information for Parents and Guardians from the
Department of Education and Early Childhood Development


October 27, 2016

On Tuesday, October 25, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) voted in favour of a strike. The earliest NSTU members can take any form of job action is December 3, 2016. Potential job actions can range from a province-wide strike to work-to-rule.

The government will continue to work with the NSTU and is committed to addressing teacher working and student learning conditions. A new partnership working group, comprised of representatives from the NSTU, school boards and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, will have their first meeting within the next two weeks to continue to talk about the important issues facing teacher working and student learning conditions.

We understand that talk of any labour disruption can result in anxiety and concern for students and their families. Should a job action occur, every effort will be made to minimize disruptions to your child’s education.

As the situation evolves, updates will be available through www.ednet.ns.ca and @nseducation on Twitter.

 Key Messages: Streamlining Curriculum Grades Primary to 3

 

What has changed in the Primary to Three curriculum?

●       Mathematics and Language Arts are the core subjects for young children in schools.  The content area subjects (Health, Integration Communication Technology, Science, Social Studies, and Visual Arts) are integrated with them.

 

What does integration mean?

●       Integration is a way to organize and apply student learning across subjects.

●       The streamlined curriculum allows students to make connections between subjects and acquire basic concepts and skills.

 

Key Messages: Grades Primary to 3 Report Cards

 

How is the P-3 report card streamlined?

The report cards for Primary and Grades 1-3 have been revised to reflect the changes to the curriculum. The main headings on the P-3 report cards are:

●       The Learner Profile

●       Integrated Language Arts

●       Integrated Mathematics

●       Music

●       Physical Education


 

What is the learner profile?

●       The learner profile describes the development of social skills and work habits.

A developmental scale is used to describe students' progress as they acquire these skills and habits.  It is a three part scale used to describe a student's academic and social development on the Learner Profile and in Music and Physical Education. The codes used are:

o   (WD) Well Developed

o   (D) Developing

o   (ND) Needs Development

 

 

 

 

What comprises a comment/grade in Grades 1-3 Integrated Language Arts?

 

·        The comment describes student progress in Language Arts. Comments may also reference Health, Information Communication Technology, Science, Social Studies, and Visual Arts. The grade reflects student achievement of learning outcomes in Language Arts.  Each strand in Integrated Language Arts will have a grade. So, an A-D will be noted for:

○         Reading and Viewing

○        Speaking and Listening

○         Writing and other ways of Representing.

○        Appreciation of the French Language and of Cultural Diversity (Immersion only)

 

What comprises a comment/grade in Grades 1-3 Integrated Mathematics?

·        The comment describes student progress in Mathematics. Comments may also reference Health, Information Communication Technology, Science, Social Studies, and Visual Arts. There will be one overall grade (A-D) reported in Integrated Mathematics.

 

What comprises a grade in Grades 1-3 Music and Physical Education?

·        There will be one overall grade using the new developmental codes (WD, D, ND)

 

 

Please Note the following​

 

·        For Grade Primary the Term 1 report card will only report on Integrated Mathematics and Integrated English Language Arts.  Music and Physical Education will be reported on starting in Term 2

 

·        For Grades 1-3, the Term 1 Music and Physical Education course comments are optional.
