Staffing 2021/2022

It's hard to believe, but the staffing process for September 2021 - June 2022 has begun!

This past week, we were pleased to learn that Kawartha Heights has received additional staffing of .4 for an Early Intervention Teacher next school year. This role will support both reading and self-regulation in the primary grades, focusing on co-planning, co-teaching and co-assessing. This is a great support to our students and will really allow us to shape the role based on our specific needs here at Kawartha Heights. While much of the focus will be in the primary grades, there will also be an increased emphasis on Social-Emotional and Self-Reg learning and deepening of understanding school wide.

In the next several weeks I'll be sharing more information about criteria for requesting class placements for next year. Please do not get in touch just yet - we take very few requests and those that are approved are based on specific criteria only. We are not yet at the point for these discussions to happen, so hang tight! I'll let you know as soon as it's time to touch base.

Just a little reminder to please ensure you complete the COVID screener daily with each of your children. If one of your children does not pass, everyone must stay home. Then follow the instructions on your screen. The screener can be found at: If you would like a paper copy of the screener, please see the attachment below.
