The Lloydminster Public School Division has held its annual general meeting.
Last week, faculty, staff, and the public met at Lloydminster Comprehensive High School for presentations and discussions about the year that was. The meeting primarily centered around the progress the Division has made in three areas: academic gains through the Education Sector Plan, progress on implementation on a communications plans, and their priority around wellness and relationships within the school division to impact mental health.
What became clear from the meeting, in discussing numbers and standards: Lloydminster Public School Division students are doing well.
“We’re really proud of the results we have right now,” said Todd Robinson, Director of Education for the Lloydminster Public School Division.
“The Sector Plan in Saskatchewan, which is a provincial plan guiding all the work of all school divisions, set some targets for 2020 and right now Lloyd Public has already surpassed the target for percentage of students reading at grade level by grade 3. And right now, we have about 80 per cent of our kids reading at grade level, and we’re really proud of that. That’s significantly higher than the provincial averages at this point. With regards to graduation, the provincial average right now it 75 per cent and in Lloyd Public our graduation right is about 85 per cent.”
Robinson also said that parents of students at Lloyd Public should not only be proud of their kids but also the Division and its teachers for doing such an excellent job, and that although they’ve made a lot of great gains, there’s still work to do.
