Board Improvement Plan

Our Board Improvement Plan for Student Achievement (BIPSA) is dedicated to excellence in Catholic education while infusing joy in student learning and using joy as a measurement of success. The BIPSA is focused on increasing student success through planning and continuous improvement. This year we have opened the document to be completely editable by all of our stakeholders. If you have suggestion for how to deepen our work and improve learning, please add them by going to our living document.

The Kenora Catholic District School Board is committed to promoting faith formation, well-being and academic achievement. We value leadership and collaboration, striving to 'build each other up' and see the potential in all of us.
