Dear Colleague

Accountability is not just a buzzword, it is a focus of public education and if properly linked to school improvement planning can ensure that students succeed to their full potential.

Holding the Ministry of Education, school boards, senior administration, principals, and teachers accountable based on national, provincial and international tests and other data that measures a school system’s effectiveness is not just a fad, it is an exciting trend in Canada and worldwide that is changing the way we deliver education.

Insight Information Co. has brought together an experienced roaster that can address a variety of important subjects and share with you the challenges that they have overcome to help you ensure improved education performance for your organization. The speakers will be available to respond to specific questions that you currently confront on a day-to-day basis, as well as to provide important source materials for your personal library.

Most Ministries of Education in out nation have moved forward with some sort of accountability plan and are now heading towards the next step of using these plans to improve student learning. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done to connect test results and data to improvement planning.

The speakers assembled will identify the practical problems associated with implementing these plans and offers strategies for helping you.

This conference offers a unique opportunity to learn from a national panel of leading experts with speakers and case studies from all ten provinces, the United States, and Great Britain and to meet other professionals grappling with these same issues. We look forward to your active participation in this conference.

Yours sincerely,
