  • Up to three math lead teachers in all elementary schools
  • Coaching for principals of select secondary schools to lead improvement in math among their students
  • Support for learning at home through parent resources that provide helpful tips and information on the mathematics curriculum
  • Better access to online math resources and math supports such as Homework Help or SOS Devoirs
  • Math support for Grades 6 to 9 outside of the school day
  • Opportunities for educators to deepen their knowledge in math learning, teaching and leading, including a dedicated math Professional Development Day to further their school improvement efforts.
