Effective schools meet the learning needs of students by responding to their interests, learning preferences, strengths and needs. Students will benefit from effective instructional practices and strategies to support engagement, achievement and success. Students will benefit from instructional supports such as differentiated instruction, the use of technology, and the selection of current learning and teaching resources. A strong focus will be placed on literacy and numeracy.
