City for All Women Initiative (CAWI) facilitators will lead the group in exercises focused on identifying what is important to participants when it comes to student success and to neighbourhood schools.
8:00 Presentation on the New School Learning Plan (SLP)
A powerful tool for parents and School Councils to work with the principal and school staff to set school goals is the School Learning Plan (SLP). The Zone meeting will be an opportunity to address how parents and the School Council can engage in developing the SLP and then monitor the implementation and finally assessment of success. Parents can then leverage the SLP to advocate for the resources the Principal may need to implement it effectively.

8:30 Discussion on advocacy at the School Board, City and Provincial levels to address issues identified in the opening exercise. All
