Engagement

Student Engagement

When students are engaged, student achievement and well-being improves.

Hearing directly from students is critical. The more we can engage students and the more culturally aware and responsive to their lived realities, the more likely we are t understand and effectively respond to their voices and needs.

Students can be engaged in a number of ways, including: when curriculum is relevant and meaningful to them; when they are asked to share their experiences, ideas and input; and when they are involved in their own learning and the decisions made about their learning.

Great work is underway across the system to increase student engagement at both the school and system level. We are committed to hearing from all students, and are working to further to connect directly with students whose voices have been left out or discounted.

Parent and Community Engagement

Parent involvement plays a significant role in student achievement and well-being. When schools, families and communities work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and enjoy school more.

When parents are actively engaged in supporting their child’s success in school, students are more likely to be motivated, earn higher grades, have better behavioural and social skills and continue their education to a higher level.

There are a variety of ways that you can get involved and contribute to your school community. From volunteering in your local school to participating in school councils or advisory committees, you can make a difference and have your voice heard.
