Viola Gibson Family Calendar

Hello Viola Gibson Families,

Part of our work these past few years has been to implement the High Reliability Schools Framework. The HRS Framework is based on research that guided the design of 5 levels of operation to support schools in their school improvement efforts. These five levels include: Safe and Collaborative Culture, Effective Teaching in Every Classroom, Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum, Standards-Referenced Reporting, and Competency-Based Personalized Learning. 


At Viola Gibson, our emphasis has been on implementing level 1. You have an important role in providing ongoing input on our Safe and Supportive Culture. It is important that we hear from you; your feedback will be used to help us continue our school improvement efforts. 


This is an exciting time for our school and our district. Using the HRS framework and will help us reach our school vision and attain our district mission of Every Learner; Future Ready. You can access the survey through the link or the QR code below.


Thanks in advance for taking the time to provide feedback.

The District is committed to providing all students with a safe and civil school environment in which all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect.

A student (or adult on student's behalf) who believes he/she has suffered harassment should report such matters to certified staff/administrators.
