Building Brighter Futures Together 2019-2023

APPROVED STRATEGIC PLAN 2019-2023
Creating a Culture ... of innovation, caring and social responsibility.

At the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, we want to ensure that our schools are welcoming places for all students to engage, belong, learn, grow, explore and discover. Our job is not simply to provide facts and figures, but to develop the characteristics and skills that will help our students find success in the world.

Starting in 2018, the Board of Trustees and District Staff spent considerable time reflecting, collecting information and analyzing student achievement results, investigating best practices, and consulting with the community to establish a set of priorities that would guide our work for the next four years. Our goal was to create a simple, measurable and impactful plan that is meaningful to our students, staff and community members.

Recognizing that learning, well-being and equity are the core of our work, our strategic plan is focused on building a culture that supports and engages students, staff and community. To do this, we need to build a workplace that is safe, caring and respectful. We need to set high expectations for all students and staff. And, we need to look forward and think about how our world is changing and ensure we are ready to welcome that change. With this in mind, we are excited that our new strategic plan has three key objectives – to create a Culture of Innovation, a Culture of Caring, and a Culture of Social Responsibility.

To drive our cultural shift, we have established three goals for each objective; one with a student focus; one with a staff focus; and one with a system focus. These goals are supported by strategies that will guide our work; outcomes that point to the change we want to make happen; and key performance indicators that will help us to measure our progress.
