To meet the needs of all learners, Education Services collectively supports innovation and professional learning aligned with Surrey Schools’ vision of Learning by Design and its inter-related priority practices: Curriculum Design, Quality Assessment, Instructional Strategies, and Social and Emotional Learning. All learners benefit from purposeful, engaging instruction that seamlessly integrates the district’s priority practices and nurtures students’ intellectual, personal, and social and emotional proficiencies. Development of these core competencies is central to the work of Surrey educators.
Professional learning opportunities provided by the district aim to help teachers become more intentional and strategic in developing students’ core competencies, as well as design learning environments that embed the priority practices and reflect the First Peoples Principles of Learning. Engaging students in learning experiences that use thinking, collaboration, and communication to solve problems, address issues, and make decisions is an integral part of the learning in all curriculum areas.
