What is Student  Succ​ess?

​The Student Success Teacher (SST) at Stouffville District  Secondary School works collaboratively with teachers and our two CYWs to support and facilitate the acquisition of credits for the struggling student by working to help keep students on track for graduation. 

Working as a team, which consists of the SST, Guidance, Administration, Alternative Education, Child and Youth Care Workers, and Literacy, we strive to identify individual supports and interventions for at-risk and in-risk students.  This team collaborates to initiate program and/or pathway changes, advocate for students, track progress, and liaise with board staff and community partners in support of both academic, and mental health and well-being. The classroom teacher remains the curriculum expert, and he or she will ultimately evaluate and assess the student. 

The Student Success Teacher also works to support the transition of students to high school. Working with Guidance and Administration, the SST collaborates with Elementary partners to facilitate a smooth and successful transition to their new environment, both prior to entering high school and throughout their first year.

How do I access Student Success?

If you need help managing a class or classes at SDSS, your classroom teacher should always be your starting point. They can help make a referral to Student Success when needed. If you are experiencing academic difficulties in multiple courses, or if you have concerns regarding your child's social/emotional well-being that may be affecting their learning and achievement, please contact the Student Success office.
