Covid-19 Update

OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19 AND LITERACY

The health and well-being of children, teachers, principals, their families and communities are of utmost importance.

Federal, provincial and territorial governments, alongside Chiefs and Councils, are taking important measures to protect the health and well-being of individuals and communities across the country. As a result, schools across the country are safely reopening with a combination of in-classroom and at-home learning methods – including all 18 of the First Nations schools within the Model Schools Literacy Project family/network.

Our objective during this difficult time is to support MSLP principals and teachers and to follow their lead. We are working with MSLP principals and K-3 teachers to better understand these new conditions and provide opportunities for colleague collaboration. At the same time, we continue to explore new ways of teaching literacy as well as provide support and training to increase early literacy achievement (reading and writing) for young children (Kindergarten to Grade 3).

We applaud the outstanding educators we work with. Their commitment to their students is remarkable and selfless.

To our partners, we thank you for your ongoing contributions that allow us to continue collaborating with First Nations schools across the country.
