Board issues 2005-2006 Annual Report for Rainbow Schools

Rainbow District School Board’s Annual Report for the 2005-2006 school year is now available online at rainbowschools.ca.

School Boards are required to produce an Annual Report in accordance with The Education Act. The Annual Report provides an overview of the key activities undertaken by Rainbow District School Board to address its strategic priorities during the 2005-2006 school year. It also offers an overview of the current Board budget with a focus on improved student achievement and success for all.

“Students first remained our focus for decision-making in a school year marked by continuous improvements in student achievement and expanded learning opportunities to ensure success for all,” said Board Chair Dena Morrison. “We commend the Province of Ontario for its continued investment in public education. New textbooks and library resources, smaller primary class sizes, more prep time, specialist teachers, student success teachers, additional funds to operate clean, safe schools and smaller schools, and financing for much-needed capital projects are having a positive impact on students in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin.”

“With the support of the Province of Ontario, parents/guardians and our many community partners, we capitalized on our collective knowledge and individual skills for the benefit of students,” said Director of Education Jean Hanson. “We redoubled our efforts in literacy and numeracy as we looked to raise the bar and reduce the gap. I am pleased to say that we are achieving positive results, a tribute to our dedicated teachers, instructional leaders, and tireless trustees.”

Copies of the 2005-2006 Annual Report can be obtained at the Board Office, Centre for Education, 408 Wembley Drive, and area Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin.
