BCIT District Goals 2021-2022

    • The reintegration and stabilization of the in-person learning process requires the district  staff to be responsive to the mental health needs of students in response to a more  normalized full day schedule in September 2021 while understanding their own mental  health needs. To this end, one hundred percent (100%) of the students will have at least  one meeting with supportive personnel (school counselor, psychologists, social workers,  or SAC) to assess and address their emotional, social, or mental health needs. To provide  training and support to address the emotional and social needs for staff and students as  they return to a 5-day schedule, ninety percent (90%) of faculty and staff will participate  in team building meetings. 

     

    • To support the students in accelerating their learning and addressing academic recovery  due to pandemic related educational interruptions: 
      • STEM and Literacy Specialists will meet at least one time with each tested  department to review pre-data for potential gaps in learning. 
      •  Individual meetings will be held with each teacher in tested areas to review data at the  class level.  
      • Students will be offered at least five (5) credit remediation courses at each campus in  the areas of greatest need. 
      • Push-in support will be provided in 80% of college preparatory tested math classes  for the first six weeks to enable small learning groups and differentiated instruction. ∙ Ninety percent (90%) of tested classes in math, science, and English language arts  will receive push-in support to hold 1:1 conferencing with students to review testing  data and formulate an individual learning plan. 
      • Progress monitoring will be extended to STEM, Biology, and Chemistry in addition  to tested areas of Math and ELA courses. 

     

    • Hybrid and remote instruction have impacted the time students have spent on practical experiences in career and technical classrooms. In order to address acceleration or learning loss from hybrid instruction, career and technical classrooms will increase hands-on and practical experiences. Applicable classrooms will devote at least 70% of instructional time to practical experiences in the career and technical classroom. Furthermore, once (1) a month, students will be scheduled for an additional CTE session to further enhance their work experiences within their field of study.

     

    • The staff and students will build upon their efforts to support a school environment  mindful of the importance of building a cultural competency, which supports and reflects  equity and diversity. Efforts will continue to seek alignment in at least the following  three (3) areas: book and instructional materials will be reviewed as part of curriculum  and instruction; student and staff equity ambassador activities will be expanded and  related reading book groups will build upon earlier conversations. 

     

    • In an effort to return to a normal school routine, there will be a concerted effort to re engage students into the school community. These four (4) areas will be addressed:
      • After school tutoring will return to a face-to-face format. 
      • Coaches and advisors will actively seek to recruit students to bolster attendance  and participation in these events. 
      • School sponsored field trips and guest speakers will be encouraged to enhance  educational experiences. 
      • Designed activity periods to allow students to participate in various student  groups and programs throughout the school year.
