Ontario’s First Incubator School

January 30, 2018, OTTAWA - Always an innovator, the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) has announced plans to develop Ontario’s very first incubator school. With new report cards coming to Ontario schools, the CECCE is partnering with education experts like Michael Fullan to explore learning strategies and assessment tools for the transferable skills newly identified by the Ministry of Education. The board has selected École élémentaire catholique George-Étienne-Cartier to spearhead this undertaking.

The term “incubator school” reflects the innovative and unique character of this move to modernize the skills and abilities identified in the student profile upon finishing school.

“I am fortunate to have this opportunity to collaborate professionally with the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est team. The board has a strong track record when it comes to implementing innovative learning strategies for its students. As a learning community, the CECCE is constantly delving deeper into its initiatives in pursuit of continuous improvement. That is why it will be such a pleasure for me to support the board’s incubator school project,” said Michael Fullan, acclaimed author and education consultant.

In September 2017, the provincial government announced a radical shift to modernize the school system and help students develop the skills to thrive in a constantly changing world. The new report cards will assess the transferable skills students need to succeed academically and in life: communication, collaboration, self-directed learning, critical thinking, innovation and creativity, and citizenship.

“The CECCE is proud to be creating this incubator school, which is another example of the board’s visionary style. The school will have the opportunity to refine its professional practices to develop transferable skills in its students before the Ministry implements its new assessment tools,” explained CECCE Chair Johanne Lacombe.

Director of Education Réjean Sirois pointed out that this is in line with the CECCE’s learning experience transformation priority. “Thanks to this elementary school, the board and its schools will be better prepared once the provincial government introduces the new report cards. The CECCE is once again seizing the opportunity to be at the forefront of progress in the field of education.”
