Welcome from the Superintendent

mark davidson pixWelcome to Medicine Hat Public School Division

I joined the jurisdiction in April of 2016. From the first day it was clear to me that I was joining a team that cared deeply about one another. Relationships are at the core of the work that we do in education and Medicine Hat Public School Division has invested in developing and maintaining relationships built on shared commitment to meeting the needs of the students we serve. I feel very fortunate to be part of a school division that maintains a clear "Students First" focus.

Our division holds at its core five Universal Goals that are intended to drive our decision making and actions. These Universal Goals are:

• Providing Optimal Learning Environments to all learners, whatever their need or community.
• Approaching all people with an Inclusive Mindset; seeking to ensure that all are engaged in the life of the school community in a manner that fully meets their needs.
• Fostering a Culture of Wellness that acknowledges that learning happens best when the physical and emotional needs of the learner are met.
• Developing Leadership skills among all members of the school community through the provision of opportunity, mentorship, development and support.
• Determined focus on First Nation, Métis and Inuit student success in school as well as broadening the understanding of all members of our school community regarding Indigenous cultures, history and ways of learning.

Ultimately, the success of our students is dramatically influenced by the people we invite to join our team. Excellence is not built by a website, an instructional model or a strong mission statement. Excellence emerges when good people share a goal and work together to achieve it.

Thank you for your interest in Medicine Hat Public School Division. If you join our team, I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

Be Well,
