Please be reminded: 

PARENT NOTICE - RE: "S" TRIPS 

 

The Vancouver School District would like parents to know that S-Trips are not supported or sponsored by the district or secondary schools. The S-Trip company offers grad events and recreational trips during spring and summer school breaks, as well as weekend trips to ski resorts. These are not school-sanctioned grad events or field studies and school and VSB staff are not involved in these trips.

 

The company recruits volunteer students from secondary schools to help with the advertising of these programs to other members of the student body. This advertising is done through social media tools widely used by students, such as Facebook and Twitter. The school district will not permit this company to advertise or meet with students on school property. The Vancouver School District has a comprehensive policy for school sponsored field trips and studies, which include clear expectations for student safety, responsibility and supervision. We encourage parents to carefully review the guidelines for student supervision and safety of any trips in which their youth are participating.

PARENT NOTICES:

"I-Time"
 

Our bell schedule incorporates i-Time tutorials. This Schedule was just approved by the VSB.  The schedule incorporates the “i-Time” at the start of the day. Please note that students will still benefit from dedicated reading time, which the English Department has graciously volunteered to continue.

 

The tutorial period occurs at the usual start time, every day, Monday through Friday.      This “i” stands for independence, for student-focused collaboration, mentoring, enrichment, and support.

 

Students overwhelmingly supported the tutorial block during our recent Student Forum. With our divergent group of learners, this is a creative way to allow extra time, different groupings and flexibility. This is teaching time that expands upon educational options and differentiated instruction.  i-Time is intended to complement and strengthen what we do with our students.

PARENT NOTICES:
Introduction of "I-Time" -
Our new bell schedule to incorporate the i-Time tutorial starts in September. This Schedule was just approved by the VSB. We have asked for a 3 month Trail period to try this schedule and work out any challenges it brings. The schedule incorporates the “i-Time” at the start of the day. Please note that students will still benefit from dedicated reading time, which the English Department has graciously volunteered to continue.
The tutorial period occurs at the usual start time, every day, Monday through Friday. This “i” stands for independence, for student-focused collaboration, mentoring, enrichment, and support.
