FVSD Awards Program

On May 27, 2016, FVSD will host their seventh annual “Fort Vermilion School Division Awards Ceremony”.  The program of recognition of staff and schools is comprised of three distinct areas:

I. Long Service/Retirement Awards
II. FVSD Merit Awards
III. Exceptional Awards 

Outstanding efforts towards building positive learning environments are occurring in Fort Vermilion School Division schools and these efforts are deserving of recognition.  Please read the description of the awards below and if you feel that a school in your community is deserving of such recognition, please take the time to nominate the school.

It is important to note that ANYONE can nominate a school for a FVSD Merit Award, including staff, students, parents and community members.  A nomination can be as brief or as in depth as the nominator wishes.

i. Culture and Climate - The educational experience is critically important to the success of each student.  This Merit award will recognize efforts to create a school environment in which students have a sense of belonging, are encouraged to contribute as an educational citizen, and feel that adults in their lives are invested in all students being successful.

ii. Students Support for Success – Every student in our school system has unique educational needs.  Some students face more learning challenges than others.  This Merit award will recognize support systems that are impacting the student’s success.

iii. Divisional Priorities –  The Fort Vermilion School Division is a highly focused educational organization.  Annually, the Board of Trustees establishes priority areas for staff to focus their efforts.  The goal of these focus areas is to make an instrumental difference in the lives of students by providing every opportunity for success.  Currently the FVSD Board of Trustees has established three priorities:

a. All students will improve reading, writing and digital literacy skills.

b. All students will improve numeracy skills through practical applications of curricular outcomes.

c. All students will be increasingly engaged in learning environments to improve achievement and citizenship skills.

The Divisional Priority Merit award will recognize school efforts in these three priority areas.

iv. Programming and Instruction – The educational program of a student consists of a broad range of experiences which occur both within and outside of the classroom.  This Merit award will recognize the breadth of quality programming and instruction for students.
