Strategic Priorities

Strategic Priorities Title

The SCDSB is committed to creating a culture of belonging, engagement and success for all through deliberate actions in four key areas that form the Strategic Priorities: Well-being, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Community, and Excellence in Teaching and Learning. 

Rooted in the Strategic Plan are ten universal themes that reflect the voices and values of the SCDSB. These ten themes will be woven throughout our operational plans and will provide guidance and intentionality to the learning and work we do as a system: Accountability, Identity, Safety, Collaboration, Innovation, Respect, Support, Trust, Transparency and Celebration.
