Student Success

At KSS, we celebrate all the unique interests, goals, and strengths of our students. The KSS Student Success Team works to ensure that every student has the same opportunity to succeed and graduate from high school. 
Our team consists of Success and LPS Teachers, Administrators, Guidance Counsellors, and Mental Health workers who help establish and facilitate programming to help students reach their goals. As a team, we work to support students as they transition from grade 8-9, and as they work towards entering the workforce, skilled trades and post-secondary learning. 
To help support students in their high school plan, our resource room is available for student use throughout the day.  Classroom Teachers can arrange for students use this space to get academic support and to access a quiet space to work outside of their classroom. Students can also work on credit recovery or on course work to keep them on track for graduation.  Students with IEPs use this quiet space to work on summative assignments and tests. Our Resource room also has a pantry of food and hygiene items that are free for students. 
Please connect with Amy Rose the Lead Student Success Teacher for more information about our Student Success Supports and the use of the resource room. 

The Success Room is open at Lunch
