Literacy and Numeracy Programs

BooksUpper Grand DSB offers Grade 6, 7, and 8 students requiring additional support with the Ontario curriculum, particularly in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy, an opportunity to participate in an 8-day non-credit remediation program. The program is intended for students whose achievement of expectations in Grade 6, 7 or 8 Language and/or Mathematics indicates that they are likely to experience difficulty in the next school year.

Students who are achieving a Level 2 or below in Language and/or Mathematics at their grade level, and are recommended by their Principal, are eligible to participate in the program. Parents of Grade 6, 7, and 8 students can contact their home school to indicate their interest in the program.

A principal (or designate) will register all students. Please contact your school’s principal if you feel that your student would benefit from the summer literacy and numeracy support programs.

Registration is now open.

These support programs are half-day in length so it is possible for students to participate in both the literacy and the numeracy support program.
