Vision Statement & Goals

Our Core Values

Eastern School District Newfoundland and Labrador

Core values are the soul of a district. They are what the District and its schools stand for, what they hold dear, what they believe in. Core values inform both mission and vision and as such are indispensable to strategic planning. Core values are often expressed in a group of several statements that begin with phrases such as “we believe,” “we care about,” “we value” or “we commit to.” We cannot get people to “buy into” our values. We can only seek people who are predisposed to share them.

The core values of the Eastern School District are the fundamental principles that guide behaviour and decision making. The values of the Eastern School District are student- centered, as it is the students of the Province that the District is serving.

  • Student Centred: Each person will work to ensure that the success of all students is maintained as our highest priority.
  • Quality Service: Each person provides timely responses to stakeholder requests and needs.
  • Respect: Each person will ensure a safe, welcoming, inclusive environment that nurtures student achievement and responds to stakeholder needs in a caring, thoughtful, and considerate manner.
  • Innovation: Each person will encourage and embrace new ways that challenge traditional methods to ensure that our students and staff are exposed to leading edge/state-of-the-art inspiring/stimulating programs and technology.
  • Accountability: Each person will act in a socially, legally, and fiscally responsible manner.
  • Openness: Each person will work to ensure a transparent decision-making process and develop effective communications among students, staff, family, and the community.
  • Integrity: Each person will be open, honest, and ethical by sharing information with a commitment to being open and transparent with all stakeholders.
  • Social Justice: Each person will ensure that the principles of social justice are applied in all decision making, policies, and practices.

Homework Policy

The Eastern School Board recognizes that homework, when properly administered with appropriate feedback, is a valuable part of the educational process which acts as a bridge betweenhome and school in providing information regarding student learning.

Rationale

Homework should support and enhance student learning. It is most effective when there is an active partnership between teacher, parent/guardian and student.

If a teacher chooses to assign homework, the following guidelines are provided for the various grade levels:

  • K- 10 minutes
  • Primary – 30 minutes
  • Elementary – 40 minutes
  • Intermediate – 1 hour
  • High School – 1 to 2 hours.

More about homework (PDF).

Safe Schools Policy

A teacher is explaining to the student during the lesson

The Eastern School Board believes that all students, employees and volunteers within the District have a right to a safe, secure and caring environment and that such environments CAN be created in ALL schools. Such environments develop out of an atmosphere of mutual respect and partnerships between the home, school and community. The key to making every school safe and caring is recognizing that violence can be an outcome of any power imbalance of gender, ability, age, creed, ethnicity, economic status, race and sexual orientation and that everyone has a responsibility and role to play in reducing violence in schools and in the community at large.

Guiding Principles of the Provincial Safe and Caring Schools Policy

  • All members of the school community are respectful and valued.
  • School policies and responses are fair, positive and consistent.
  • Positive attitudes and behaviours are expected, modeled, taught and reinforced.
  • All members of the school community are actively involved.
  • Is free from violence and aggression.
  • Promotes respect, health and well-being.
  • Embraces diversity.
  • Supports resolution of conflict through non-violent means.

Active and Healthy Living

Children are exercising during the lesson of physical education

Healthy Students Healthy Schools is a provincial initiative which aims to create a school environment that supports healthy living for children, youth and the larger school community of Newfoundland and Labrador. As a joint partnership between the Departments of Health and Community Services and Education, the Healthy Students Healthy Schools initiative will see policies and guidelines developed, curriculum enhanced and programs expanded to support the creation of a healthy school environment.

The Eastern School District and Eastern Health have partnered to implement the Healthy Students Healthy Schools initiative in Eastern Newfoundland:

  • Assist with the creation and support of Living Healthy teams.
  • Provide information on Healthy Students Healthy Schools to school groups, school councils, etc.
  • Support schools focusing on student and staff wellness.
  • Provide schools with support for Living Healthy events.
  • Assist with the interpretation of the School Food Guidelines with key stakeholders (i.e. administration, catering, etc.).
  • Assist schools with applications for funding opportunities.
  • Assist schools with accessing relevant health promotion resources.
  • Provide in-services on Living Healthy topics to teachers, principals, parents, catering staff, etc.
