SOGI 123

The Board of Education of School District No.59 recently had an education session about SOGI, presented by Tumbler Ridge Secondary School Principal, Jan Proulx. SOGI is an inclusive term that represents all individuals regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The YouTube Video: SOGI 123 talks about understanding SOGI issues and how important it is for students to feel safe, included, and understood.  

 

Letter to Parents from Minister Fleming

Honourable Rob Fleming, Minister of Education, has written a letter to parents and guardians in regard to the new curriculum implementation, specific to Grades 11 and 12.  Minister Fleming has added an additional year for the transition to be completed.

"As Minister of Education, it is one of my top priorities to ensure all students experience a seamless transition to the new curriculum.  That is why we are adding an additional year of transition time to bring in the Grade 11-12 curriculum - now all students will be using it starting in September 2019. The grade 10 curriculum will be implemented as planned in September 2018...With this extra year, we will ensure teachers have what they need to support students as they develop the skills they need to transition smoothly to the post-secondary institutions and jobs of their choice."

StrongStart is a program helping children grow and learn from their most influential teacher, their parents; preparing them for kindergarten and the rest of their lives.  The DCSS South Peace Campus Video Production 12 class toured some of the centres in SD59 to check out how the learning happens!
