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.
2020/2021 Case Studies
Focus: If we teach children calming strategies like yoga and deep breathing, will they be more able to demonstrate personal awareness and responsibility?
Focus: Our team determined that there was a greater need than ever before, since COVID-19, to provide special interventions to build/rebuild reading and writing literacy skills that were possibly ‘lost’ during the months away from the school setting.
Focus: Can we better prepare Indigenous students in grade 8 at SMS before they make the transition to Jackson for grade 9 (and be successful in secondary, and feel a better sense of resilience and belonging)?
Focus: Enhance transition from middle school to high school through increased connection with the high school transition team at the middle school level.
