Inclement Weather

Due to the extreme cold weather, HTS is closed today, Monday, January 2019.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first HTS Assessment Summit on 
Thursday, November 1 to Saturday, November 3, 2018

Have your team join Helen Pereira-Raso, Head of School at Holy Trinity School (HTS), Sandra Herbst, a global leader in assessment and leadership, and the faculty of HTS as they reveal the ways in which quality assessment principles support organizational change and the ongoing pursuit of excellence - both in your classroom and leadership practice.

Why Should Your Team Attend?

  • To extend the collective understanding of assessment as a catalyst for organizational efficacy
  • To uncover models for creating alignment between learning and leading
  • To learn from HTS teachers as they share the ways in which classroom assessment practices have deepened student learning
  • To have time to reflect and plan as a team


Sandra Herbst is a noted system leader, author, speaker, coach, consultant, and educator with extensive experience in leadership, adult learning, and assessment. Sandra has helped systems to reflect on current goals and to plan strategically for next steps, regardless of the focus of educational innovations.

Sandra’s expertise, informed by wide-ranging practice and research, is enhanced by her compassion and humour. She has worked in both elementary and secondary schools as a classroom and specialty teacher, school administrator, and program consultant. Sandra is the former superintendent of the second-largest school district in Manitoba and a past President of the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents and the Manitoba ASCD Affiliate.

As a facilitator of workshops, web conferences, and Institutes across North America and internationally, Sandra provides teachers and leaders with strategies and methods to help meet the diverse needs of learners. She engages in long-term projects with school systems including co-teaching and co-planning with teachers. Sandra models strategies through demonstration lessons with students in their classrooms. Through these events and interactions, Sandra has conveyed her vision, humour, and passion to thousands of teachers and has followed up with many of them to assess and learn from their experiences.



For those of you who might want to go even deeper, please stay for the afternoon on Saturday, November 3, 2018, from 1:00pm - 4:00pm. We will be offering a framework for you and your team to consider an emerging question of practice that you have related to assessment practice in your school. The afternoon will include opportunities for your team to receive coaching from our summit experts.

The cost for this Saturday afternoon session is $282.50 (HST included) per team.
