Public invited to student learning session

District wants to start a conversation with the general public

The way students are learning is changing and the first steps are being taken by the community to create a vision for personalized learning.

The public is being asked to join with School District 69 (Qualicum) trustees, administrators, teachers and parents to continue the process of creating a vision of what personalized learning can be in this school district.

A meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6 at 7 p.m. at the Springwood Middle School Multi-Purpose Room.

School District 69 Superintendent Jim Ansell admitted concern has been expressed about what personalized learning is but he said there needs to be discussion in the district before there is any clear picture.

“Every district is different.  We know there are some founding principles and there is a basic understanding but we want to start the conversation on what it could look like here,” he said.

The background on why a system change is being looked at will be discussed.

People are invited to discuss and share ideas or bring students along to consider the vast wealth of expertise that resides in the community.

Ansell said tthe school district also has a great opportunity with the expertise that exists in our retirement community.

 

The meeting is being held June 5 at 7 p.m. at the Springwood Middle School Multi-Purpose Room.
