Learning & Curriculum

The Learning and Curriculum department is responsible for overseeing the delivery of educational programs to all our students.  We support quality instruction through providing in-service for our teachers, working with our teaching partners in supporting and delivering Professional Development for our teachers.  In addition we provide direct programs and supports to our students with programs like Literacy Intervention Program, Numeracy Helping Teachers, etc.  In addition we have a number of teams and committees (see below) that are constantly striving to improve our programs and delivery of a high quality education to our students.
