The rubric is a continuation of our collective work to support our vision for Aboriginal education in Seven Oaks School division. The rubric has 5 columns. The first column identifies the seven areas outlined in the policy.
The following columns are meant to show a progression of growth from the first column to the fourth. The names of the columns indicate this ongoing development: Emerging, Developing, Competent and Creative/Innovate.
The continuum builds from the Accountability section of our Aboriginal education policy. The continuum is meant to be a list of suggested activities and can support school planning. Each section includes a list of recommended initiatives schools can undertake to achieve the stated goals of our Aboriginal education policy. This content was amalgamted from staff who attended our Divisional Aboriginal education PATH committee meetings or one of our parent/community consultation meetings. It provides the steps that can be taken to achieve the outcomes identified in the Seven Oaks Aboriginal education policy (2013).
It does not mean that when these goals are achieved that we are done our work, rather we continue to assess, vision, plan and implement new initiatives. It’s part of steadying our growth cycle and what we wish to accomplish together.
