Graduation Requirements Dialogue

A Community Conversation about the Future of Graduation Requirements

Wednesday, November 21, 2012 4 – 6:30 pm Sentinel Secondary School Library 1250 Chartwell Drive, West Vancouver The West Vancouver School District invites you to participate in a special community forum that will help shape the development of future graduation requirements. The BC Ministry of Education is seeking input from students, parents, educators, post-secondary partners and civic groups. This session is one of many being held around the province this autumn. The forum will be facilitated by Lynn Archer (Director of Instruction, Burnaby School District) and Lynne Tomlinson (Director of Instruction – Learning Services, West Vancouver School District). We look forward to having you join us and thank you for participating in this important community discussion. For more information, please contact Deb Podurgiel, dpodurgiel@sd45.bc.ca or phone (604) 981-1000. The forum will include facilitated group discussions focused on obtaining feedback based on five key questions: Question #1: What do you think are the core or essential things all students should know, understand and be able to do by the time they leave secondary school? Question #2: Beyond the core, how could pathways for choice or exploration be provided? Question #3: Research is underway with a focus on the following five cross-curricular competencies: a) Communication b) Critical Thinking c) Creative Thinking and Innovation d) Personal Responsibility and Well Being e) Social Responsibility How do you think students could demonstrate these competencies? Question #4: How might learning be communicated to: a) Students b) Parents/Guardians c) Post-Secondary Institutions/Employers? Question #5: How would you design an awards program to recognize student success in a personalized learning environment?
