New CLCs

Now 75 CLC schools across the province

English school boards and communities are embracing the CLC approach to school- community improvement as a strategy that promotes student engagement and success. By developing purposeful partnerships, students, families and communities have increased access to activities and resources. The recent addition of nine new CLC schools highlights the commitment of our school board leaders to the community school strategy, which integrates academics, family support, as well as youth and community development. Some CLC schools are also expanding regionally, becoming multi-site CLCs with common partners and sharing similar challenges. An example of this would be the expansion of ETSBʼs Richmond & Region CLC to include Drummondville Elementary and Asbestos-Danville-Shipton (ADS) Elementary.

Exam Preparation and Homework Help

LEARN heard what parents had to say

In a recent LEARN survey of parents, exam preparation and homework help were identified as the top two topics about which parents wanted more information. Good news! We have some great resources to share:
  • SOS LEARN - FREE online tutoring with experienced teachers for students from grade 2 to the end of secondary. This service is available four nights a week, from now until final exams are written. Make a request here: http://bit.ly/LEARN-SOS
  • Success Checker provides self-paced, multiple choice questions covering content for many secondary 3, 4 & 5 courses. After each test, students are provided with a study guide containing feedback and links to supporting resources.

Chateauguay Valley CLC

Providing work skills opportunity to students

Employment is a crucial aspect of a youthʼs journey towards adulthood, so local businesses in the Chateauguay Valley partnered with the CLC to help secondary 2 youth understand the importance of building basic work skills, which include written and oral language proficiency. After participating in a workshop on preparing a CV and cover letter, students submitted their employment ʻapplicationsʼ to local businesses, some of whom even conducted mock interviews with the students. Student reflections: “... the cover letter was challenging, it had to be perfect. Iʼm not that good at spelling.” “Feedback from the companies really helped.” Employers also had some helpful insight into the project and suggested that it was “... a great way to show students the importance of school and doing well.” “These could be future employees!”
