Achievement and SIP

Measures of Student Achievement and Success

• Analysis of the standardized provincial report card
• PM Benchmarks and GB+ French language reading assessment at primary grade levels
• DRA and CASI (English and French) language reading assessment at junior grade levels
• EQAO provincial testing at the grade 3 and grade 6 levels
• Our Student Survey for students grades 4, 5 and 6  

The staff at Farley Mowat Public School are progressive in their approach to assessment. They have collaboratively developed rubrics to enhance the usefulness of data collected with the PM Benchmarks and GB+ tools; these rubrics have been shared with other schools in the Board. School data is used regularly and effectively for decision making around instruction of students and support of students with differing needs.
Our staff actively participates in collaborative learning with a focus on improving student achievement. This year,  the focus for teacher and educators professional development will be in the area of mathematics, specifically numeration, number sense and problem solving. 

School Learning Plans and Initiatives

Working with the School Effectiveness Framework to analyze our areas of strength and needs, we collaboratively work on our School Learning Plan. We reflect on and review our School Learning Plan and Wellness Plan on a regular basis at staff meetings and in committee meetings. Our School Learning Plan process begins with a review of data about our students as well as developing an understanding of the OCDSB Board Improvement Plan. A lead group works with the entire staff team to develop a If ...Then statement to establish a goal for improved student achievement. and student well being.
