Treaty 7 First Nations Student Success Program
FNSSP is a proposal-driven initiative designed to support K-12 educators on First Nation Reserves in their ongoing efforts to meet students' needs and improve student and school results. In our 7th year, T7MC supports our Treaty 7 Nations by administering the program for 19 schools. T7MC expends approximately $3.67 million purchasing and delivering direct-student resources and programming, while making investments in school-wide learning assessment and student information system processes.
- Reading, Writing, and Mathematical Skill Building: Improvements are made to classroom libraries with the purchase of up-to-date textbooks and technology including SmartBoards, computers, and iPads
- Family Literacy and Student Retention Initiatives: Prioritizing culture and language to address students' needs and provide family support, T7MC devotes expenditures for Elders in classrooms, after school clubs, athletic programs, post-secondary preparedness, fine arts instruction, and building community partnerships
- Professional Development: T7MC invests in training, certification, and memberships in professional associations for 400+ educational staff annually, including hosting an Educational Assistant conference.
- Project Staff: T7MC invests in 42 full-time and part-time staff members in the Treaty 7 schools with one full-time FNSSP staff member at T7MC office.
