School District #38 - Richmond

Communicating Competency to Our Newcomers: A Vision for Richmond's Welcome Centre

Richmond has been welcoming families and students from all over the world for the past 25 years. New families are welcomed at our School Board Office, where we interview and assess new students to be placed in schools. Currently, we have a system that functions very well from an operational perspective. We are able to assess students, level them and place them in schools. This system is supported by ELL teachers, Settlement Workers in Schools (SWIS) and Cultural Interpreters. In 2017, we have come far in our world knowledge and understanding of how relationships are formed and how assessments impact individual self-worth. Our students' first contact can be a place where they can feel safe to explore, to be seen and to understand about their new schooling experience. We would like to merge the concept of fast, efficient and accurate assessment of language with the concept of starting with the students' strengths in mind. Four goals of our project: 1) Improve Space at the Welcome Centre 2) Develop assessments and interview guidelines that are culturally fluent. 3) Build capacity for staff at the Welcome Centre. 4) Build capacity for teachers across the district.
