Message from the Chair
On behalf of the Avon Maitland District School Board Trustees, I am pleased to introduce our 2016-2017 Annual Report. The 2016-2017 school year was the first year of implementation of our updated Strategic Plan which will be in place from 2016-2020. This updated Strategic Plan reaffirmed our two core commitments: We are committed to creating positive, inclusive learning environments and maximizing outcomes for students.
This Annual Report outlines the progress we have made toward the achievement of these goals and as you read this report I’m sure you will agree that we have made an excellent start to our multi-year Strategic Plan as we continue to deliver the highest quality of education possible to the students of Huron and Perth Counties.
Of course beyond the statistics and information in this report are the amazing stories of our students and staff that occur in the schools throughout our District each and every day. These stories include students achieving things they never thought possible, reaching out to raise funds for any number of great causes, and excelling in various sports and other activities outside the classroom. And then there are the stories of our dedicated staff who do whatever it takes to ensure that every student achieves at the very highest level possible, who constantly improve their own practice through ongoing professional development, and who care deeply for each and every one of our students.
Avon Maitland District School Board has much to be proud of, and I know that after reading our 2016-2017 Annual Report you will agree.
