The division’s strategic plan, Elevate: Beyond Excellence, will guide teaching and learning, administration and operations in WJCC Schools through 2023.

This plan reflects our commitment to elevate public education beyond excellence.

Transform teaching and learning to prepare students for success in post-secondary education and careers.
Goal 2: Educational Equity
Foster a learning environment that respects the diversity of students and provides targeted, equitable opportunities for success.
Goal 3: Communication & Engagement
Cultivate a culture of open and effective communication to inform and engage all stakeholders.
Goal 4: Safety & Security
Ensure a fully integrated approach to safety and security that encompasses both the physical environment and the social/emotional needs of students.
Goal 5: Human Capital & Positive Culture
Recruit high-quality staff and retain the division’s exemplary workforce by creating an environment where transparency and trust are the norm.
