Case studies are rich sources of data, capturing both the process of inquiry with regard to a school’s particular focus for improvement, as well as the learning and observations obtained throughout the journey.
2019/2020 Case Studies
Focus: To develop and grow authentic, trust-based relationships with our Indigenous Grade 8 students through a variety of experiences.
Focus: Will our efforts to build more meaningful staff-student relationships contribute to improved student attendance and ultimately performance?

Focus: On student connectedness or lack thereof, and their success in school and mental health and wellness – both the positive or negative correlations between feeling connected and supported at school, or not feeling connected and supported at school.
Focus: To work on the scope and sequence for successful transitions of students in AVID from grades 9 to 12, continue to align AVID Centre curriculum standards with BC curricular competencies and Aboriginal world views, and build on that synergy of literacy strategies with AVID strategies to a school wide literacy plan to prepare students for a successful transition to college, careers and life.
