Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Estevan District Curriculum
The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education has designed a curriculum for French immersion that parallels the English-language version. The district also offers a Dual Credit Initiative to allow high school students to earn both high school and post-secondary credits for various post-secondary institutions across the province. South East Cornerstone is also dedicated to early learning, early literacy, First Nations Education, and instructional technology.
South East Cornerstone Public School Division #209 utilizes the provincial (Saskatchewan) Core Curriculum. This includes the curricula for arts education, English language arts, health, math, physical education, science, social studies, Aboriginal Languages (K-12), and Core Ukrainian (K-12). The district offers a French Immersion program, during which the majority of the content areas—with the exception of English language arts—are taught in French to students in grades 9-12.

Keeping Informed: Recent Estevan Educational News
- South East Cornerstone Schools Participate in Battle of the Books - Most of the Estevan-area schools recently participated in the inaugural Battle of the Books, hosted by the Estevan Area Literacy Group at Hillcrest School. Students had to read 10 novels and answer questions based on the books. Pleasantdale School sent four teams to the event, but it was the four-student Pleasantdale Book Dogs No. 2 team that won the competition, earning 48 out of a possible 67 points.
- ECS Students Go on “Life Changing” Mission Trip - Fifteen students from Estevan Comprehensive School’s Christian ethics class, their teacher, and three other adult chaperones had the opportunity to take a mission trip to Mexico, where they visited Cuernavaca and the nearby village of San Andrés Huayapan. They were not only there to drop off dental hygiene supplies, clothing, and toys donated by the community but to actually interact and help Mexican families, as they built a clean toilet and an economical stove and helped students with autism start a chicken farm at their school.
- ECS Students Show off Skills at Provincial Competition - Students from Estevan Comprehensive earned a total of 11 medals at the Skills Canada provincials—a competition during which they displayed their career skills. Four students took home gold medals: one student for both architectural computer-aided design as well as drafting (CADD), one in mechanical CADD, and the final student in hairstyle braiding. There is no national competition for hairstyle braiding, but the first two students advanced to the Skills Canada nationals. Students from the school also earned a total of six silver medals and one bronze.
Chalk Talk: The DRA
The DRA (Developmental Reading Assessment) is given to young students to assess their reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. Based on the students’ scores in these categories, a DRA score, which is representative of their instructional reading level, is given. This means that students can read a book independently with roughly 90 to 94 percent accuracy—the book is not too easy or difficult. The DRA is typically administered at the beginning of the school year, at the end of the school year, and sometimes at mid-year to stduents in grades 1 to 3. As the student reads aloud to the teacher, the teacher marks the student’s errors and what type of error, or miscue, it was. Teachers must also determine readers’ fluency and comprehension level based on specific DRA rubrics.
