Student Success Initiatives
Student Success Initiatives

The success of each individual student is critically important to all of us here at the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board.  The Ministry of Education’s Student Success Strategy is about “reaching every student”, by providing expanded options for students in Grade 7-12 and providing the necessary supports and interventions to ensure that students are successful.  This strategy is built within the Board on four pillars of student success - literacy skills, numeracy skills, pathways and further developing a culture of community and caring within our schools.

Below are some examples and links of what we are doing here in KPDSB to support student success.
