Both the EBUS Academy and Fraser Lake Elementary Secondary School (FLESS)  have submitted applications for the Growing Innovation in Rural Learning Grant.

The EBUS proposal was concerned with student transitions from grade seven to eight and from grade 11 to 12.  This proposal calls for using online technology to provide an opportunity for all grade seven’s to learn how to develop a growth mindset.  At the grade 11 level, EBUS has proposed that they develop a local course building on the concept of students as independent learners. Students will pursue 21st Century Learning Skills as they frame inquiry questions and make local, provincial, and global connections as they pursue their learning goals.

 

The FLESS staff are working on enhancing student success and community connections.  They want to find ways to develop positive relationships with students and the community by allowing more of a student and community voice in school practices and policies.
