@LandLHWDSB Vision Statements

On June 301th, 2016, a set of vision statements for the Leadership and Learning K-12 Team were shared. Here are those statements:

1. Ensure that K-12 is an interdisciplinary model
2. Ensure that all voices are heard and honoured
3. Ensure we have a clear learning plan for K-12 meetings
4. Ensure transparency within all facets of L&L
5. Ensure a model and space for our own learning within Leadership and Learning

We asked the Leadership and Learning K-12 Team to share their thoughts on what we need to do make these visions a reality. Here are the responses:
