About the program

The First Nation Student Success Program supports activities that increase students’ achievement levels in reading and writing (literacy), mathematics (numeracy) and encourage students to remain in school (student retention).

Activities funded through this program are required to include three interrelated components:

  • school success plans that set out goals, activities and targets for improving student achievement levels in the three priority levels (literacy, numeracy and student retention)
  • student learning assessments that support the school success planning process. Schools participate in their respective provincial standard testing process. Assessment results should be used to identify areas for improvement
  • performance measurement systems for schools to assess, report and take steps to accelerate progress made by students and schools. It allows schools to set targets, monitor results and report to parents and communities on how students are doing
