Decision Not To Pilot Draft Curriculum
After extensive consultation with our community, our Board of Trustees and administration have decided not to pilot the draft K-6 curriculum. This decision involved consultation with our stakeholders and considered the needs of all our students as well as the effect and impact of the current pandemic on our schools. We have identified several concerning themes including age inappropriateness, lack of Indigenous permeation, level of inclusiveness, content and timing. Many of these concerns are similar to those voiced by parents, staff and community members through our consultative process.
Calgary Catholic will be providing feedback and is confident that the government will make necessary adjustments needed to strengthen this new curriculum so that it sets all students up for success in the future.
Staff, parents/guardians and community members are encouraged to continue providing feedback here.
