The First Nation Student Success Program (FNSSP) focuses on three main areas for improvement. These areas include literacy, numeracy and student retention. This is a proposal-driven program that is designed to meet the needs of the set priorities.
As a participant to this program, the Lac La Ronge Indian band is committed to:
- School success planning
School success plans have been developed and are the foundation for improvement plans for literacy, numeracy and student retention. These plans were facilitated through a consultation process with teachers, students, school committee member and the Prince Albert Grand Council.
- Student learning assessment
Data collection is essential for planning for improvement. All students are required to participate in standard testing at specific grades. Standardized tests are given once per year. The Prince Albert Grand Council participates in the collection and monitoring of data from the test scores.
- Performance measurement
FNSSP participants are required to document results of literacy and numeracy test scores of the students. These indicators ensure that program goals are being met and outcomes are proven positive.
What are we doing?
The Lac La Ronge Indian Band education department is committed to the FNSSP program and is working diligently in offering support to teachers in both the areas of literacy and numeracy. Technology in the classroom has been the focus in the area of retention. As of the fall of 2013 all classrooms within the Lac La Ronge Indian Band will be equip with smart board technology. All kindergarten classrooms will benefit from Ipad stations. Technology will be paving the way of education and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band will not be left behind. Training will be available for teaching staff throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
