Planning for Student Success
Regina Public Schools has a well-coordinated planning process, which enables alignment of the strategic plan and all school division planning activities with those of the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP). The Regina Public Schools Strategic Plan provides overall direction for everything the division does and serves as a guide to ensure that all RPS planning processes are in alignment with each other.
The Regina Public Schools Strategic Plan (2014-17) was updated in 2018 by the School Division for an additional three-year period to align to the Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP). The Regina Public Schools Strategic Plan (2017-20) continues its commitment to student success through a Leadership for Learning framework and six core strategies:
The six core strategies are to:
- Improve Indigenous student retention and achievement
- Engage students, families, staff and community in education
- Increase the number of Kindergarten students who enter Grade 1 ready to learn
- Increase the number of students who achieve grade-level performance in literacy and numeracy
- Increase graduation rates
- Demonstrate effective governance, leadership and accountability
All six strategies will be the focus of school division planning and implementation activities through 2020. The division’s expenditures will continue to be aligned to support the achievement of these targets, and the effectiveness of the strategies will be monitored and adjusted annually.
The diversity of Regina’s neighbourhoods, student learning needs, and levels of community support for schools across the division dictate that a differentiated and incremental approach to target setting and goal attainment is necessary at the local school level. Therefore, School Strategic Plans (formally Learning Improvement Plans) at the school level are designed to achieve realistic, contextualized and incremental improvement in student results.
The Strategic Plan was developed following a number Continuous Improvement Plans from recent years. See a list of those plans below.
