Inquiry and Innovation Community Evening - January 30th

Dear Parents/Guardians of students in Rutland Schools,


In response to the BC Ministry of Education’s Framework for Enhancing Student Learning, the Principals and Vice-Principals in the Rutland Family of Schools have been working with their school teams to co-create an Inquiry and Innovation Community Forum for Rutland area parents and students to learn about the inquiry and innovation that is occurring in the Rutland Family of Schools.


The purpose of the community forum is to authentically engage Rutland area parents in their child’s education through the opportunity to learn, ask questions and provide feedback regarding:


  • the Re-Designed Curriculum
  • the inquiry process (Spirals of Inquiry) and the School Community Learning Plan
  • the OECD 7 Principles of Learning and the Innovative Learning Environment Project
  • the District’s plan for Communicating Student Learning


The Inquiry and Innovation Forum will provide opportunities for Rutland parents and students to interact with school teams from each of the eleven Rutland schools through interactive learning activities that highlight a learning focus at each school.


The forum will take place at Rutland Senior Secondary on January 30th 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm.


On behalf of the Rutland Family of Schools, I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your student(s) to participate in this exciting community form.
