Walpole Island FN School A National First for Numeracy Program

This is an article from Chatham Daily News showcasing the 5 year project partnership focusing on numeracy between Hon. Paul Martin, Aboriginal Educational Initiative, a charitable organization and Walpole Island First Nation School.  Paul Martin announced that Walpole Island will become a flagship school for numeracy among First Nation schools across Canada. It is hoped that the numeracy program will eventually spread across Canada.  The project will be based on the curriculum and teaching strategies that came from Ontario’s at-risk elementary schools.  Programs will include providing professional development to assist teachers, fund lead teachers who have training about the best practices and most effective techniques, developing a school improvement team that meets regularly to review school data and plan next steps, hire external experts to visit the school for a few days a month to assist the principal and teachers and plan for parent involvement and community engagement.
