STM STUDENT SUCCESS PROGRAM
The Student Success program is part of the Ministry of Education’s Learning to 18 Initiative which aims to increase the graduation rate in Ontario and to support students who may be struggling in their academics for a variety of different reasons. In keeping with the Ministry and board focus on grade 8-9 transition, we have a particular focus on grade 9 students although we monitor and work with students at all grade levels.
Our office, which is structured more like a student centre, is conveniently located in room 140 outside the cafeteria and student forum. We have an open door policy and a very welcoming environment with computers, classroom materials, resources, etc. Students can come in at any time (either on their lunches, by appointment, or with teacher permission) to receive assistance with:
• assignment completion,
• goal setting,
• study skills.
• literacy test preparation, etc.
We also provide a temporary alternate location where students can work comfortably and quietly if they need to and we help to coordinate specialized programs such as credit recovery and the RISE alternative education program.
Our team acts as advocates for our students and we work in collaboration with classroom teachers, resource teachers, guidance counsellors, administration, parents and community contacts to ensure that all of the student’s needs are being met and that they have opportunities to obtain all their credits and feel successful in their secondary school years and beyond.
