School Improvement Plan
Deer Park P.S. is committed to supporting the Board's literacy focus under the three Board focus areas of Quality Schools, Building Family and Community Capacity and Quality Workplaces.
The following is an outline of our school's Plan for Continuous Improvement including highlights of some of the strategies to support student achievement.
Deer Park P.S. is committed to supporting the Board's literacy focus. As a result of the First Step Writing Program, the whole school has made a commitment to improve literacy. The GEL Group (Georgina Early Literacy) has provided Deer Park with specific literacy strategies. Deer Park also provides reading programs in the Primary and Junior Division to help students improve their skill levels. Literacy based professional development will be a critical piece of our school plan.
Involving the parents in their child's education will enhance learning and improve student self-esteem. Curriculum Nights Meet the Teacher, Open Houses as well as the school newsletter will continue to support parental involvement. With the support of our school council, Deer Park will continue to survey parents regarding the school plan as well as seek out their concerns regarding their children's education development.
Deer Park is committed to providing a safe and orderly environment for all children. Our school code of behaviour as well as the Safe Schools Policy clearly outlines behavioural management techniques. Our School continues to focus on a safe and orderly environment where students can experience a variety of academic opportunities. As well, Character Education Traits are supported daily throughout the school through the value of the month program.
A strong partnership with parents is beginning to develop to ensure that parents take an active role in their child's learning. Parents must feel a sense of ownership for their child's learning. The use of the agenda planner, class and school newsletters ensure that parents are informed.
Deer Park runs a Little Dears pre-school program. This program supports early parenting issues and helps in the transition to school.
