Community Resources

What it is

Organizations or agencies that provide resources and/or services to students, their families, teachers and/or school boards, but are not funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education. They could be funded by other governmental ministries, charities or privately.

Strategies

• Teachers can provide contact information for applicable community resources to parents/guardians and students.
• Regularly communicate with parents/guardians and determine strategies that can be implemented at school.
