Student Improvement – Attention Educators!

A+ A-

Can you identify students that need help with the Ontario Curriculum?

Are there grade 7 to 10 students in your school, struggling with reading, writing and math?

Do you want your students to improve?

Of course you do, we all do. And that’s why Continuing Education is proud to be working with all Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board elementary and secondary schools by offering powerful after school programs.

These specially designed programs offer strategies that enhance the skills and performance of HWDSB students who need extra support as they progress through the Ontario Curriculum.

Our Continuing Education Student Improvement Programs have tremendous success with improving the academic skills of struggling students.

With after school Literacy/Numeracy programs, students will improve in the following areas:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Math
  • OSSLT Preparation Program (Grade 10 Literacy Test Preparation)

We help you – help students!

How does it work?

We have developed programs to help improve students:

  • After School Literacy –  Improve reading and writing skills.
  • After School Numeracy – Improve mathematics skills.
  • OSSLT Preparation – Grade 10 Literacy Test preparation.
  • Homework Clubs – Support students taking grade 7 to 10 courses with development of study skills and the knowledge required to successfully complete assigned course work.

Each program consists of 10 sessions. Each class is an hour (to an hour and a half) in length and run outside of the regular school day. The programs are available all year from September through June – please talk with your Principal (in Elementary Schools) or Student Success (in Secondary Schools) for information about programs being offered at your child’s school.

How do we get started?

The Principal, in consultation with teachers and parents, will identify students eligible for Literacy/Numeracy Programs.

Note: After School student improvement programs are dependent upon securing sufficient student enrolment in classes.

Together we can help struggling students become extraordinary students.

After School Programs are FREE

Continuing Education Literacy/Numeracy Programs are Ministry funded and support the day school program by offering after school or summer instruction that is explicit, focused and targeted where students can improve their literacy and numeracy skills in an innovative environment. Principals and Vice-Principals along with staff work closely with Continuing Education to determine how to best take advantage of these valuable learning opportunities for our HWDSB students.

Continuing Education offers thanks and appreciation to all HWDSB educators who access the numerous modules and wishes them continued success as we strive for improved student performance and positive relationships together.
