First Nation Student Success Program

The First Nation Student Success Program (FNSSP) is a proposal-driven program designed to help First Nation educators on reserve (Kindergarten to Grade 12) and improve school results.
 
The Program supports projects that increase students' achievement levels in reading and writing (literacy), mathematics (numeracy), and encourages students to remain in school (student retention).
 
The FNSSP is aligned with the Government's long-term goal of providing First Nation youth on-reserve with access to a quality education that encourages them to stay in school and graduate with the skills they need to enter the labour market in order to pursue their career aspirations.
 
Projects funded through this program are required to include three interrelated components:

1. School Success Plans: First Nation schools are required to develop school success plans which set out goals, activities and targets for improving student achievement levels in the three priority areas ofliteracy, numeracy and student retention.

2. Student Learning Assessments: First Nation schools are required to conduct student learning assessments that will support the school success planning process. Assessment results should be used to identify areas to be targeted for improvement. Schools are to participate in their respective provincial standard testing process. The FNSSP will support First Nations schools in selecting and implementing student achievement testing tools.

3. Performance Measurement: First Nation schools are required to put in place performance measurement systems that allow schools to assess, report on, and take steps to accelerate progress made by students and by schools.
