PYP Leaders in Lutheran primary schools joined together on Monday at Concordia College for the second time in 2018. The PYP framework has been going through an intensive review process. The review has resulted in some adjustments to the framework. The enhanced PYP will be launched in October 2018.
Lutheran PYP schools have been exploring what these changes will mean for each of them and how schools might prepare for the future.
Leaders spent time discussing and working through ‘agency’ which is at the center of the enhanced PYP. Concordia shared how agency was used throughout school improvement initiatives. By giving stakeholders agency – voice, choice and ownership, long term, sustainable change was made possible.
There was discussion about the links with agency and Growing Deep. The more we explore Growing Deep the richer the framework becomes. We would encourage you to all take the time to use and see Growing Deep as a key document when reflecting on your school’s key initiatives and explore ways of using the framework as a catalyst for school improvement.
