Superintendent′s Report


May 2008

Electronic Report Card

There has been great success reported from Baddeck Academy with the use of the student information system acquired through CBVRSB funds. Since the SIS program ‘Outcomes’ was introduced in grades P-12 at Baddeck Academy in October 2007, they have been able to produce the standard provincial (electronic) report card. The high school produced that report card in the first semester and will do so in the second semester. The junior high produced it second term and subsequent terms, and the elementary school will produce the electronic report card (final) in June.

Sailing Program for Students with Special Needs

A meeting was held with representatives from the Northside Rotary Club to discuss partnering with them in promoting their sailing program for students with special needs. The club has purchased a specially rigged sail boat and has a trained instructor to carry out a program this summer. This program is free for students, and we are excited to be able to work with them on this worthwhile project. Our first step will be to get information to schools in the Northside about the project and then to set up an information session for parents about the project. This will give both parents and students a chance to ask questions about the program and to see the boat.

Program Planning

During the months of April and May, the Lead Team for Program Planning has been visiting schools as follow-up to the IPP reviews at the request of Program Planning teams. During the visits, the school staff shared questions and concerns about the process and received information to assist with the development of appropriate adaptations and Individual Program Plans. Supports within schools for students with special needs were also part of the presentation. To date, 11 schools have been visited and requests are continuing to be received.
