March 19 deadline for feedback to Ministry well-being education strategy
Reminding everyone that March 19, 2017 is the final date to submit feedback on the Ministry’s well-being strategy for education. Check out the Ministry’s page at http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/about/wellbeing2.html for various print and vidoes resources and the link to the engagement portal where you can submit feedback.
From the site: “The Ministry of Education is looking to develop a shared vision of how we can best support the well-being of all students, in collaboration with parents, students, educators and administrators, counsellors, social workers, and community partners across the province.
Work is happening every day in local school communities to promote and support the well-being of students. At the same time, we also know that there are significant challenges and more work is necessary to support the well-being of all Ontario learners. The Ministry of Education wants to learn from, and build on the successful work underway, as we collectively move forward on our shared goal of promoting student well-being.
By drawing on the knowledge of those who have done important work over many years to foster well-being among our students, we will strive to establish a common understanding of what promoting well-being means in schools, identify challenges and opportunities for improving supports for well-being and consider how we will know our impact on well-being to best guide our future efforts.
With your feedback and with contributions from partner ministries, we will develop a provincial student well-being framework for K-12, that will reflect our shared commitments and the positive outcomes we want for all our students.”
