UGDSB launching phased plan focusing on student success and learning interventions

March 23, 2022

The Upper Grand District School Board is pleased to announce a new three-part program to support students in elementary and secondary schools. 

In February, the Ministry of Education announced it was providing funding to school boards to support learning recovery initiatives. The UGDSB will receive just under $4M through the Ministry’s Priorities and Partnership Funds (PPF). This funding includes allocations for summer programming, reading intervention programs, and student success initiatives. 

The UGDSB is launching a phased plan focused on student success and intervention, to provide support to students facing learning gaps caused by the pandemic. The plan will focus on students with the highest needs as a result of the learning disruption caused by the pandemic, with a focus on literacy and numeracy needs. 

The UGDSB plan includes specific programs and supports for elementary and secondary, divided into three phases. 

Supports and instruction will be provided using a blended approach, utilizing in-person and virtual/online opportunities.

Selection for participants in these programs will be based on a data-driven approach, through examining student achievement data to ensure that students with the greatest needs are identified, and the availability of qualified teachers to deliver the program. Schools will reach out to students and parents/guardians if this additional support is available.
