Understanding and Responding to the Larger Societal Context

As discussed in Alberta Education’s document on the Principal Quality Standard, a principal  “understands and responds appropriately to the political, social, economic, legal and cultural contexts impacting the school.” (Click for blog posts on “Understanding and Responding to the Larger Societal Context“)

I felt I have met the criteria by doing the following:

  • Worked with our school to develop the Forest Green School portfolio project to give students an opportunity to use technology in a safe and meaningful way.
  • Administer division programs such as the Early Years Alternative Program (EYALT) as well as Balanced Literacy.
  • Work with all schools to ensure successful placements for several students with the Connections for Learning program.
  • Have facilitated the successful transition of Parkland School Division’s Stony Creek Program from Muir Lake to Forest Green School.  I worked with the parent and staff community, along with a transition team led by an outside facilitator to ensure the program continued to prosper.
  • Have worked a great deal with the Paul Band First Nation community to ensure students from the area have continued success at Forest Green School.  We have also ensured that we have continuously infused FNMI culture into our school sites through our work with Paul Band and our FNMI Liaison.
  • Worked diligently with our FNMI coordinator and parents to ensure that students have access to food within our school if they come without lunch or snacks.
  • Have done a few presentations with the school board trustees on Inclusion, our Stony Creek program, as well as a student demonstration from Muir Lake School.
  • Work with the town of Stony Plain to meet the requirements of the joint-user agreement.

    It would have saved me a lot of anguish had I learned much sooner.
    From start to finish you are looking at no more than 7 minutes.
    Form a paste made from crushed garlic to help cure a
    nosebleed.

    When someone writes an article he/she retains the
    thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this post is perfect. Thanks!

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  6. ginger benefits

    Reduces inflammation -cardiovascular, joint & gastrointestinal.
    You know what, it neutralizes excess acid in the body and gives
    your body, a “light” feeling. Ginger is also able
    to boost the intestinal lipase activity in the digestive system.
