Poverty In Our Schools

School Assessment Tool

The enclosed School Effectiveness Framework placemat was shared at the CDR/MDR meeting on Friday, February 21, 2014 and there was great support for its usefulness.

The faces of poverty in our schools include:

  • generational;
  • situational;
  • mental;
  • poor in spirit;
  • immigrant; and
  • First Nations/Aboriginal.

This poverty survey provides a framework for discussion with learning teams and gives context for implementation and monitoring of the School Effectiveness Framework through the lens of poverty.

It is a practical, on the ground process that can be used to engage staff in a meaningful way and have direct, positive impact on student success.
