“Building a Great School for Every Kid” – A Common Vision for Student Centered Learning.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Saskatoon’s Schools have experienced tremendous growth and increased diversity in the past few years.  Despite this growth and a challenging fiscal environment we have been able to maintain a high level of achievement in our publicly funded school systems.  What makes Saskatoon unique is the strong student centered partnership that has been built between the Saskatoon Public School Division, the Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division, and the Teachers of Saskatoon.  This partnership is the product of a continuing positive and respectful dialogue between the school boards, their respective divisions, and their teachers.  While each of us works within our own domain we have developed a shared perspective and vision for student centered learning in Saskatoon based on a culture of collaboration, professionalism, and school improvement.
