Strategic Planning

At the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board, every four years we engage in a strategic planning process that results in the establishment of priorities to focus our efforts on student achievement and success.

As we begin the process for developing our 2015-2018 Strategic Plan, we are asking all of our stakeholders: students, staff, parents and community members, for their involvement in shaping our future direction.

Community Focus Group Meetings - Low Enrolment Secondary Schools

In January-February 2015, KPR held focus group meetings with secondary students, parents and staff from our smaller high schools and their elementary feeder schools.

These consultations explored the variety of methods small schools are using to support programming for students. The groups also discussed how low enrolment secondary schools can be supported in the future.

Why the Trades?

When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more. Learn more about the trades.
