Superintendent's Corner

As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that all employees understand the core values that we believe are an important part of Anglophone School District North’s culture, we are dedicating a month to each of our six core values.  October is Communication Month.

 

Our core value for communication states “We commit to having open, respectful, honest and timely communication”.

 

The importance of effective communication cannot be understated and is a building block of a successful organization.  It promotes motivation by informing and clarifying expectations for employees, it is a source of information for the decision-making process, it plays a crucial role in helping to mould employee’s attitudes by providing them with the information that they need, it ensures we remain connected across the district, and it allows employees to better understand how the district functions.

Each of you will be receiving a sticker in the next week or so that explains the communication core value.  This can be placed in a prominent place so that you remember the importance of communication in your day to day work.

As we work on our own communication strategies, our goal is to discover and mitigate the various barriers to communication, both in receiving and delivering messages.  We look forward to hearing from you any ideas you have that might improve communication in Anglophone North School District.

I was able to reach, and in fact, exceed my goal of visiting schools (combination of pop-ins and longer visits) for the month of September. Visiting schools and talking with administrators, staff and students keeps me grounded in what is happening in classrooms.  This is the grassroots of the education system and what happens in classrooms and schools is key to the success of our students.  I look forward to continuing to visit schools to see the great work that is happening.

I also hope that staff members are taking the time to share their own growth goals with colleagues.  We must strive to always improve ourselves and find ways to grow.  Learning doesn't stop once you finish school and it is important that we make this visible to our students.  This keeps us accountable and on track. 

See you in October!
