The Student Success strategy was established by the Ministry of Education in 2003 to increase high school graduation rates and to have youth engaged in structured learning until age 18 or until graduation. The Student Success strategy is motivated by the belief that every student deserves a good outcome from his or her education, that the outcome should be the best fit possible for each student’s potential, willingness and capacity for further learning, and that all students should have a core of common knowledge, skills and values. The Student Success Leader for Algonquin and Lakeshore C.D.S.B. works with administrators and teachers to build capacity in the school system to address student achievement in these pillars.
Student Success focuses on student achievement for Grade 7-12 under four pillars (areas of concentration). The four pillars include Literacy, Numeracy, Pathways, and Community Culture and Caring. The objective of Student Success is to increase graduation rates by addressing student achievement and programming.
