Help to unify and reorient the provincial education system on what matters most--the student. Student First will help the education system meet the targets identified in the Plan for Growth, while addressing local priorities, and bringing them together into one plan for action. Student First is not an initiative, but an approach to our work as a sector.
Student First is also about shining a spotlight on the pockets of excellence that currently exist across the province. There is likely not a challenge in education that someone has not already tackled somewhere in Saskatchewan.
