School Development (SD)

School development is a systematic approach to change at the school level designed to guide and focus a school towards the achievement of its mission – enhanced student learning. Developed within the context of both the provincial and district strategic education plans, a School Development Plan reflects the uniqueness of the local school environment. The Newfoundland and Labrador School Development Model is a results oriented process that involves collective reflection, analysis, problem solving, planning, and continuous improvement leading to the attainment of specific school goals.

School Development Model current under revision. Updates coming soon.
