Our Strategic Commitments 2018-2021
The Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) has adopted Strategic Commitments to guide our school community through the years 2018 to 2021. Our goal is for each commitment to resonate with our students, parents, and staff. By focusing our work on these three areas, we can continue to address strengths and needs in a faith-filled environment, ensuring safe, caring and inclusive schools, dedication to equity and well-being, as well as continued focus on excellence and Deep Learning.
Embracing diversity and promoting equity, we are guided by Catholic social teachings to create welcoming places for all.
Honouring the dignity of every person, we care for and support the well- being of all.
We foster innovation to inspire deep learning so that all can realize their full potential.
Strategic Commitments 2018-2021
All students are inspired and guided to realize their spiritual, social and academic potential, and to take their place in the world as thoughtful, well-rounded citizens.
Provide all of our students with a well-rounded education for the mind, body and spirit through an emphasis on academic excellence, social responsibility and Catholic values.
Our Multi-Year Strategic Plan
Our Multi-Year Strategic Plan (MYSP) provides a vision for the Board by establishing strategic direction, with an emphasis on student achievement. Operational plans, such as the Board Innovation Plan (BIP) flow out of the MYSP. The BIP is updated and reviewed by the Board of Trustees each year. Both of these documents outline our priorities and goals for performance measures, evidence gathering methods and targets for improvement.
Stay tuned for the new 2018-2021 MYSP and 2018 BIP to be posted here in September.
Our Spiritual Theme
To remind our students and staff about the values they are encouraged to behold, we have adopted a Spiritual Theme to guide us through the years 2018 to 2021. Our Spiritual Theme “Seek Justice, Love Kindness & Mercy, Walk Humbly with God” enables our staff, students, and community to dig deep in the Gospel to make real and meaningful connections with our everyday lives. We look forward to showcasing the ways in which our staff and students connect with this spiritual theme.
Read more about how our three-year theme will focus on Catholic social teachings to align with global competencies and encourage learners to think globally and act locally.
“Educating is not a job but an attitude, a way of being: to educate we need to step out of ourselves and stay among young people to accompany them in the stages of their growth, placing ourselves at their will.
Give them time, optimism for their journey in the world. Teach them to see the beauty and goodness of creation and of humanity, which always retains the imprint of the Creator.”Pope Francis
