Student First Engagements

The Ministry of Education introduced the Student First approach in July 2013 to unify, reorient and re‐engage the provincial education system on what matters most – the student.

In October 2013, the Government of Saskatchewan appointed Russ Mirasty and Patricia Prowse as independent Student First Advisors to lead the province‐wide engagement process to gather feedback from students, parents/caregivers, teachers and the broader education sector on how to improve the education system by putting the student first.

Input received through the engagement process provided the focus and direction on priorities for action as part of the Education Sector Strategic Plan.

Through the engagement process, four themes and many subthemes arose as students, parents/caregivers, teachers and representatives of the education sector and community agencies shared their experiences. The findings presented these four themes:

  • Relationships
  • Engaging the student/learner
  • The learning environment
  • Student/teacher supports and shared responsibility 

The Student First Advisors completed their engagements in June 2014. 

The Student First Engagement Discussion Guide highlights the key themes they heard and their findings from across the province, and includes a toolkit that is designed to facilitate ongoing conversations around Student First.
