The staff at JN Burnett Secondary school is seeking the support of parents in the process of our application to the Richmond Board of Education for the implementation of Collaboration Time for September 2019. Collaboration Time will allow staff to work together to plan effective learning experiences for students, and is critical as staff work together to implement the revised provincial curriculum, new course structures in Career Education, and the three new Provincial Graduation Assessments. Collaboration Time has proven to be effective and successful in our 9 Richmond schools who currently have it. The Burnett staff believe Collaboration Time will afford them the valuable time to work together to enhance student learning, maintain high curricular standards focused on foundational skills, and focus on learner-cantered and flexible learning opportunities.
Our teacher-led Collaboration Time Committee hosted an information meeting on Thursday, March 7th at 7:00pm in the Multipurpose room.
