Professional Learning Fridays

On some Fridays throughout the calendar school year, there are full days where students do not attend school. Note these dates on your calendar so alternative childcare arrangements can be made. 

During our Professional Learning time, our staff meet as teams to discuss student learning and develop strategies to further impact student success. This is a systematic look at what needs to be taught to meet the Alberta Education Program of Studies. We look at how we are teaching, what we are assessing, and what we are going to do if students are not learning. 

This is a critical time for our staff to have professional conversations, engage in learning opportunities, and further develop our practice to create the best schooling experience for your child at I.V. Macklin.
