What’s the SCDSB Difference? We need to hear from you! http://ovl.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/68What’s the SCDSB Difference? We need to hear from you! <p>​We need your help developing the new strategic plan for the Simcoe County District School Board. The purpose of a strategic plan is to set goals and directions that will guide the work of our organization and help us realize our vision of a community of learners achieving full potential.  </p><p>We want to know:</p><ul><li>What does the SCDSB do already to help us realize our vision of a community of learners achieving full potential? (What are we doing well?) </li><li>What is the most important thing that we can begin to do to help us realize our vision? (What else can we do to improve?)</li><li>What role do you think SCDSB schools play or should play in your community? </li></ul><p>Get involved:</p><ul><li>Visit <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/difference"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">www.scdsb.on.ca/difference</span></a> to take our survey and complete the <em>Where should we invest?</em> sorting activity to help identify priority areas.</li><li>Follow our @scdsb_schools Twitter account and join our #SCDSBDifference Twitter chat to share your ideas on Thurs., Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. </li></ul><p>Other consultation activities:      </p><ul><li>We had community outreach booths at Collingwood Downtown Farmers' Market (Sept. 17), Orillia Downtown Farmers' Market (Sept. 24) and Alliston Downtown Farmers' Market (Oct. 1).</li><li>We are conducting on-the-spot interviews with parents and students at select schools across Simcoe County. </li><li>We've invited randomly selected representatives from various stakeholder groups to workshops on Oct. 4 at the Education Centre. </li></ul><p>We'll use the input to identify the key areas stakeholders think the SCDSB should focus on. We will also review research on effective practices in education, our own data and the expectations we receive from the Ministry of Education. This information will help the Board of Trustees set our priorities. The strategic plan will outline how—together—we inspire and empower learning for life. Ultimately, our strategic priorities should move us toward our vision of a community of learners achieving full potential. </p>
Student accident insurance available for extra-curricular activities and tripshttp://ovl.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/69Student accident insurance available for extra-curricular activities and trips<p>​<span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000">Student injuries at school, during school events, and extra-curricular activities (athletics, clubs, and out-of-province/out-of-country trips) are not covered by the school board or its insurance company. While every precaution is taken to provide a safe learning environment, accidents can happen. It is essential that all students participating in extra-curricular activities have adequate insurance coverage. The SCDSB has selected <em>Insure My Kids </em>as an option for parents to consider. The coverage is for 24 hours a day and offers a variety of plans at reasonable prices. Coverage can be purchased online at </font></span><span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"calibri",sans-serif;font-size:11pt;"><a href="http://www.insuremykids.com/"><span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0000ff">www.insuremykids.com</font></span></span></a></span><span style="line-height:115%;font-family:"arial",sans-serif;font-size:10pt;"><font color="#000000">.</font></span></p>

Have you ever wondered how movies influence our children? Research shows that seeing smoking in movies has a direct impact on youth smoking. In fact, the more often kids see smoking in the movies, the more likely they are to smoke. So why is smoking allowed in children and youth-rated movies? Movies influence kids. Make them smoke free.
