English and French Immersion program teachers are completing an Early Development Instrument (EDI) for each Primary student in their class during March or early April. This work contributes to a partnership between the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, school boards and McMaster University. Primary teachers will have time to complete questionnaires on the developmental health of their students. The resulting reports provide an important insight into children’s early developmental experiences and how best to support and enhance them – we know that they have a lasting and long term impact on education, behaviour and health outcomes.
For more information please contact your child’s principal or contact Gerry Randell Programs and Assessment Coordinator Tri-County Regional School Board at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 902-740-5404.
