What’s happening in Rainbow Schools?
Board’s Annual Report for the 2009-2010 school year is now available
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 2009-2010 school year. It also offers an overview of the current Board budget.
“The 2009-2010 school year was marked by many success stories, some of which are highlighted in this Annual Report,” said Rainbow District School Board Chair Tyler Campbell. “These include the arrival of full day every day Junior Kindergarten and the Early Learning Program, significant gains in literacy and numeracy, the expansion of experiential learning opportunities, the introduction of system-wide character traits and the ongoing revitalization of Rainbow Schools.”
He added: “Guided by caring adults in safe and supportive learning environments, students excelled in arts, athletics and academics. They also made significant contributions to their local and global communities, actively demonstrating that they care about the world in which they live. In the process, they brought tremendous pride and praise to Rainbow Schools.”
“With the Province of Ontario, we continued to invest in our most precious resource, our children, giving them every opportunity to succeed in learning and in life," said Rainbow District School Board Director of Education Norm Blaseg.
He added: “Once again, our teaching and non-teaching staff proved that they are passionate about the work that they do on behalf of Rainbow Schools and the students in their care. Together, with committed trustees and supportive parents, they made student success their hallmark.”
Copies of the 2009-2010 Annual Report can be obtained at the Board Office, Centre for Education, 408 Wembley Drive, and area Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin.
