Resources for Teachers
A program is available to help students' transition successfully from elementary to secondary school.
The program includes:
- assigning a teacher or other educator to provide support during the transition years
- creating a student profile that highlights the student's strengths, needs and interests
- developing a customized timetable for each Grade 9 student
- tailoring strategies and interventions based on each school's unique advantages and challenges
For example, some schools may develop a strategy that links Grade 8 students with high school buddies who can serve as mentors.
