PROVINCIAL EDUCATION SECTOR STRATEGIC PLAN ANNOUNCED

Education Minister Don Morgan, along with Saskatchewan School Boards Association (SSBA) President Janet Foord, announced the historic Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP) at the SSBA Spring Assembly.  The ESSP is the first ever province-wide plan to be developed in co-operation with all education sector partners, approved by the 28 school boards and accepted by the Government of Saskatchewan.

“This is an exciting time for the education sector and I look forward to moving ahead with all school boards on a unified approach to education in Saskatchewan,” Morgan said.  “This sector plan is the first of its kind in Saskatchewan, it aligns our province’s shared goals while still recognizing local priorities and was designed to put the student first.”

“We have appreciated the opportunity to work in shared leadership with the Ministry of Education throughout the development of this plan,” Foord said.  “It’s a great opportunity for us to achieve the ambitious, yet attainable, desired outcomes we have for Saskatchewan students.  I want to express my appreciation to board members, senior administrators, and professional and support staff who worked in partnership with the Ministry of Education to develop the plan.  Now it’s time to put the plan into action.”

The ESSP provides short and long term outcome goals for education leading up to 2020.  The sector priorities for this year are reading and First Nations and Métis learning outcomes.

The development of the ESSP incorporated the feedback of more than 1,000 people, including public school divisions, catholic school divisions, Conseil des écoles fransaskoises, First Nations education directors and principals, the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, Métis Nation - Saskatchewan, Ministry of Education, school boards and students.

The ESSP is the action plan that will prioritize and deploy the work the sector needs to do in order to achieve the common goal of supporting every student to reach their full potential, as well as fulfilling the targets in the Plan for Growth.  Moving forward, the ministry and each division will use the ESSP to develop regional plans, evolving from the Student First discussions and priorities identified in the ESSP.
